Baked Stuffed French Toast Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Like any self-respecting mother, I plan to lounge in bed until ten painting my toenails and catching up on celebrity gossip magazines. I’ll call my BFF Keri and talk for hours. I’ll stare at the ceiling. I’ll think about things I haven’t thought about in years. Important stuff like the color I want to paint my bedroom walls and whether or not I should buy hiking boots. My clean-faced children will bring me a plate of perfectly poached eggs and side of toast. My husband will follow with a hot cup of coffee (don’t forget the cream) and the Sunday newspaper. They will promptly file out of the room...

This is without a doubt Mexico’s favorite bread. This bolillo recipe will make a bolillo with a crusty exterior and soft pillowy center that will be perfect for making tortas, molletes, and pambazos. Did you know it was the Spanish that introduced wheat into Mexico?? With it came cakes, pastries, bolillos, and flour tortillas. Corn was the basic grain for the indigenous people of Mexico and in many ways it still is, but with the arrival of the Spanish a mestijaze or mixture of cultures happened with the introduction of wheat.

This 25% whole wheat sourdough bread is an easy and almost undetectable switch from white sourdough

Even more so if you’ve got our classic no-knead bread recipe down pat, and you’re craving a little more wholesome goodness in your daily slice of toast! Can You Substitute Whole Wheat Flour In A Sourdough Bread Recipe? The short answer is yes! Adding some whole wheat flour into a sourdough recipe shouldn’t negatively affect the structure of your bread.

*This recipe for Creamed Swiss Chard & Eggs is brought to you in partnership with Frieling USA. All words and opinions are my own. Baked eggs are a major thing in my home. Especially for my children.  For some of you, that morning cereal is routine.

My children skillfully prepare their own eggs, quickly before school, keeping the dish simple, or sometimes leisurely, slicing up...
