DALILA MADE MY ENGLISH MUFFINS

“Hi Jenny!  🌺 I made your ENGLISH MUFFINS for a nice and fresh version of muffins instead of store bought ones. I do bake quite a bit of your bread and roll recipes and they always come out wonderful! So…..why not do your ENGLISH MUFFINS TOO?! Guess what…..they came out great!! 👌 I added some raisins, golden raisins and cranberries to half of the dough. I also added cinnamon to that half. The second half I left plain for just a regular English muffin. These muffins have a very nice texture…..a yummy breakfast or snack. Talk about some nooks & crannies, lovin’ these beauties. On the plain one I added a poached egg with a sprinkling of pepper and a glass of cranberry juice. The cinnamon raisin muffin went with a choice of peanut butter or cherry preserves with a cup of coffee.
Thank you for another tasty recipe Ms. Jenny!  Happy Baking!  🙂”

DALILA MADE MY CHOCOLATE-DIPPED COCONUT MACAROONS

“Hi Jenny! 🌼 I happen to enjoy coconut like crazy, so I made your CHOCOLATE-DIPPED COCONUT MACAROONS. The first thing I really liked about this recipe was the number of ingredients I needed, only 5 ingredients. I did add almonds to my macaroons, so 6 ingredients for me. Still, not bad, I was done combining everything in no time at all. I used my small cookie scoop to form my macaroons. The texture was so good, nice and moist with a good chew to them. You definitely know your sweets…..YAY YOU!! 👌 This recipe is a keeper, it’s nice and easy with limited ingredients. But mainly because these macaroons taste great! Happy Baking! 😊”

~ Thank you for another lovely photo. They turned out perfectly. ~ jenny

LYNN MADE MY NO KNEAD RYE BREAD

“Happy Friday, Jenny. This is a phone-photo of your caraway rye loaf, made yesterday. I just wrote a reply to one of your followers who had trouble making this loaf — sticky center. I didn’t get that result, but I read all the comments carefully beforehand and was on the lookout to avoid the sticky center issue. Made a few suggestions from my experience and said I would post a photo on your site’s blog page. This loaf has big flavor, almost a little sour-sweetish, plus arromatic with caraway. Nice texture. Again, dziękuję bardzo, Jenny! D. Lynn C. SilVal, CA.”

~ Thanks for your photo and for your extra input to help others. ~ jenny

LYNN MADE MY MULTIGRAIN NO KNEAD BREAD

“Teatime, dedicated to you, Jenny. I join with all your other fans in thanks & praise.”

I decided to give it a cold rise overnight, wrapped loosely with plastic wrap and towel. After bake, I sprinkled blue crystals on top, but would reco the kind Jenny used as it was not as festive looking as Jenny’s.  It WAS easy and delicious.”

DALILA MADE MY 20-MINIUTE PIZZA DOUGH

“Hi Jenny! Happy Friday which means it’s pizza night for us. I made your 20~MINUTE PIZZA DOUGH recipe for dinner. I made two 8″ pizza’s with that recipe. I let the dough rest for about 40-45 minutes while I was busy getting my other ingredients ready. The dough came out great, so easy to form into two small pizza’s. I topped them with onions, red peppers, black olives, small diced tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. 🌟They were DELICIOUS!! WONDERFUL!!🌟 The dough baked up nicely, a bit crispy because I left them in a little longer, we like our pizza that way. Another simple and fast dinner idea, THANK YOU Ms. Jenny!! Have a nice weekend! Happy Cooking!”

DALILA MADE MY BEEF STEW & EASY WHITE BREAD (no egg)

“Hi Jenny! 🦋 This weekend was a bit of a chilly one here, the winds were a bit crazy. So I decided to make your BEEF STEW recipe, a warm and stick to your bones kind of dinner. I have to tell you that it was a….’melt-in-your-mouth’….. meal!! 😄 I had no celery left, bummer, so I added celery flakes, next time celery stalks for sure. I also paired it with your EASY WHITE BREAD (NO EGG), talk about a scrumptious dinner! Your bread recipes are easy and they never fail me, thank you! I can see myself making this recipe over and over, it’s a keeper for sure. Next time I’m adding peas for a little change up. Thank you for another tasty recipe Jenny! Happy Cooking!! 🌺”

~ The stew and the bread look fantastic. I love to dunk bread into my stew. ~ jenny

BUNNY MADE MY PEPPRONI PIZZA

“Hi Jenny, I’m sitting here munching on a piece of warm and wonderful pizza, compliments of your Pepperoni Pizza recipe. I made dough following the recipe to a T and let the dough rest for an hour — then decided to mouse around the refrigerator for other toppings:  Italian Sausage, orange bell pepper, mushrooms, black olives, red onion, mozz,  a sprinkle of oregano, and of course, pepperoni.  Despite the extra toppings, pizza slices did not sag one bit.  It wasn’t because the pizza dough was thick (it is actually a cross between thin and medium crust), but because of the wonderful browning on the bottom.  Great recipe.

The only thing I would do different next time is not sprinkle some cheese on the top before I bake it.  My oven is very hot, so the cheese browned a bit. Next time, I will wait until a few mins. before the pizza is done before adding a little flourish of cheese on top.  By the way I baked my pizza for 12 mins, but I could have taken it out a minute or two earlier.   Thank you so much for teaching me and others how to make great pizzeria style pizza at home. – Bunny (in Chicago)”

~ Your pizza looks so good, and thanks for showing the salad. We need our salads every day! ~ jenny

EVELYN MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD

“Hi Jenny. I followed the Faster No knead bread recipe except I used cold water and mixed the dough the night before. As you can see, the bread looks amazing! The  pan pizza  was also out of this world!! Thank you for sharing your recipes!  😁💐”

DALILA MADE MY NO KNEAD CRUSTY ROLLS AND POTATO SALAD

“Hi Jenny! I was in the mood for some “summer-time” food. This cold is starting to get to me. Spring time can’t get here fast enough for me.  So I decided to make your NO KNEAD CRUSTY ROLLS and POTATO SALAD. Your rolls came out soooo wonderful!! I topped mine with some poppy seeds, caraway seeds and sesame seeds. My kitchen had such a wonderful aroma, nothing beats making homemade breads. I made mini bison burgers for our dinner with the rolls, yummy indeed! Your POTATO SALAD made a tasty side, it was easy and quick. The changes I made to the potato salad was yellow mustard instead of Dijon, I ran out of that. And I  added some diced sweet pickles to it. Thank you Jenny for your wonderful recipes! Have a wonderful day!”

~ Your rolls look fabulous – I love the seeds, and bison makes wonderful and healthy burgers. Thank you for sharing. ~ jenny

ASHLEY MADE MY PEPPERONI PIZZA

“Instead of pepperonis, I added chicken thighs and green bell peppers and they turned out absolutely amazing! I do wish the crust was more golden browned and crispier but my family still loved it 😚 My mom loved it and it only took 1 hour to make this entire this!! 😄 Thank you so much Jenny! You’re the best! 😚”

~ I think the moisture from that much thighs & peppers kept the crust from browning. Next time try lean chicken breast and squeeze some moisture out of the peppers first in paper towels. But I must say it does look good. Thank you for sharing. ~ jenny

BUNNY MADE MY NO KNEAD CRUSTY ROLLS & CHOCOLATE PUDDING

“Hi Jenny, I’m calling this my Jenny Jones lunch, since it uses your recipes.  I formed No Knead Crusty Rolls into Italian hoagie rolls (I love sandwiches on freshly baked bread), and baked them for 27 mins.  Next, stuffed them to make  Italian style sandwiches.  For dessert, I made your Chocolate Pudding   Delicious.  I put in a square of the 70% chocolate bar at your suggestion.  Such a nice, rich, chocolate flavor.  For a bit of flair, I added non-fat whipped cream and a few raspberries.  Thank you so much for all the recipes and inspiration. ~ Bunny (in Chicago).”

~ It’s great to see some of my recipes “in action.” Thank you. ~ jenny

OLIVIA MADE MY SIMPLE WHOLE WHEAT BREAD

“Hi Jenny. Our daughter Olivia in the kitchen again – inspired by your video. I think the ratio of fruit to crust is just about right. Peel left on for extra flavour (and fibre). It was seriously delicious with a spoonful of yogurt! All the best, Paul.”

~ What a beautiful job, Olivia! Thank you for the photo. ~ jenny

ANA MADE MY SIMPLE WHOLE WHEAT BREAD

“Hi Jenny. Simple and delicious! Regards from Lisbon / Portugal.”

~ Thank you for the photos and especially for showing the cut loaf. Looks wonderful! ~ jenny

BUNNY MADE MY CHOCOLATE LOAF CAKE & NO KNEAD CRUSTY ROLLS

“Hi Jenny, I just wanted to let you know how much I loved your Chocolate Loaf Cake.  While the cake baked, I went outside to shovel snow and fill bird feeders in single digit weather.  When I walked in from outside, I was unprepared for the aroma of chocolate to smack me in the face the moment I opened the door.  Wow, whole house to smelled like Chocolate!

I love the intensity of the chocolate flavor in this unpretentious cake.  This is not a “little kids” chocolate cake, as the bittersweet chocolate flavor really shines through, and the cake is not too sweet or “bready.”.  No frosting required for this rich cake.   I added toasted walnuts and Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate Chips to my loaf.  Moist and delicious.  Perfect with a cup of coffee or hot tea.  I offer one tip for those who have not baked very many chocolate cakes — be careful about over-baking this loaf.  If using a toothpick to test for doneness, you may hit a chocolate chip and it will look like the cake is not fully baked, when it is actually fully cooked. Thanks again, Jenny, for another marvelous recipe.  This is definitely a keeper. ~ Bunny  (in Chicago)”

~ Thank you for the great photos and for the extra tips too. ~ jennyOMG (Outstanding, Marvelous, Glorious) Crusty No Knead Rolls!  These are the best crusty rolls I have ever made, including KAF’s “Crusty European Hard Rolls” (Sorry, King Arthur Flour, yours came out dense even with extra time to rise).

 I did the overnight method using cool water.  Let the dough rise for 12 hours before shaping.  Just before popping them into the oven, I floured the tops of 2 rolls, then spritzed the other 6 rolls with water (instead of using an egg wash) to act as glue for various toppings (coarse salt, coarse salt with caraway seed, poppy seed, and black sesame seed.  I have not tried them all, but the coarse salt with caraway was really delicious. Moist and a little chewy inside, crusty on the outside. The 12 hour rise gave extra flavor to the bread, so next time I may try the 24 hour rise.

Just as a word of caution to others, the baking pan straight from the oven is SCREAMING HOT.  I could feel the heat even through my thick, padded, oven mitts and was so glad I had 2 racks near by.  One for sitting the hot pan down, and the other for transferring the rolls to cool.

For those who are crunch-a-holics or love hard rolls, when the rolls are done baking, turn off the oven and leave the rolls in the oven (with the door opened a few inches), for 5 mins. before removing for extra crunch.  I did not do this with my rolls, but just thought I would mention it as an option. Thank you, Jenny, for this amazing recipe.  Who knew you could make fabulous, gourmet rolls without fancy ingredients, special tools, or a lot of hard work!!!

BEATA MADE MY NO KNEAD CRUSTY ROLLS

“Oh, Jenny! (Ok, I mean Ms. Jones because we never met, and even though I’ve been away from the manners of life in Warsaw for thirty years, it just doesn’t feel right to call a stranger by their first name (to their face ;)).

But..Oh, Jenny! I’ve been trying to find “kaizerki” for most of my Canadian life, and even though we have some lovely Polish stores and bakeries in the area, I can’t find the ones I remember: little, crusty on the outside, soft on the inside and chewy all over. But I happened upon your No Knead buns recipe last night, and immediately went to the kitchen to mix the flour (just unbleached all-purpose), yeast, salt and water. This morning my Darling Geoff and I tasted heaven!!!! They turned out beautifully, even though I only gave the dough eight hours to rise and was a little worried.

So, THANK YOU! In one day you ended my search for my childhood bułeczki , and showed me that I CAN bake! No more looking! I’ll be baking my own from now on, and experimenting with different flours. Dziękuję ,dziękuję, dziękuję Pani bardzo! ~ Beata Latanska with Geoff Wozniak,  Toronto (GTA), Canada.”

~ I’m so happy to hear this. By the way, they freeze beautifully – I always have a few in my freezer. ~ jenny (a fellow Polish Canadian)

“Hi Jenny, Hope this email finds you well. Love all your recipes. This is my first try of it. The first time I did this I baked for 25 minutes cause i thought it was not baked. It became too hard.

PIA MARIA MADE MY FLATBREAD

“Hi Jenny, Yesterday, making lunch for my family of four, I realised I´d forgot to buy bulghur for the tabbouleh I planned to accompany my carrot/halloumi patties.

BUNNY MADE SOFT RYE ROLLS FROM MY SIMPLE WHITE BREAD

“Hi Jenny,  This year my family decided to have a traditional Czech style Christmas.  However, rather than making rye bread, I opted to use your recipe for Simple White Bread (with egg), to make Soft Rye Rolls.  I used half “bread flour” and half “medium rye flour.”  I also let the rolls rise an extra 10 mins.  To finish, I mixed a whole egg with 1 tablespoon of water as an egg wash to brush over the tops, then sprinkled the rolls with caraway seed.  Delicious  Soft and tender with the taste of rye.  I just can’t say enough about your Simple White Bread recipe.  Not only has it produced beautiful bread time after time, but my variations on the recipe have all turned out well.  Thanks again! ~ Bunny (in Chicago)”

~ They look great and thanks for sharing the details of your variation. ~ jenny

DALILA MADE MY CHRISTMAS WREATH BREAD

“Hi Jenny! 😃  I made your CHRISTMAS WREATH BREAD and it came out FABULOUS!! 🌟 I used one cup of fruit-cake mix instead of the raisins in the sweet bread. Let me tell you this sweet bread is wonderful, I can snack on it all day long….LOL!  I plan on making this fabulous bread again without the glaze, I like the idea of having it as toast in the morning. I’m also thinking this sweet bread will make a very tasty French toast. Thank you again for sharing your recipes with us Ms. Jenny! Happy Baking!  🙂🎄A very Merry Christmas to you and yours!!! 🎄”

BUNNY MADE MY BUTTERMILK BISCUITS…

“Dear Jenny, I’m having a wonderful time trying your recipes as the snow continues to pile up outside. No running to the corner store for bread, thanks to you.  My newest adventure, hot buttery BISCUITS.   I followed your recipe for “Buttermilk Biscuits” to a T, with only a couple small adjustments.  Rather than rolling the dough out once, I folded the dough into 3rds, rolling it out twice more, to help create layers (like they do for puff pastry).  I raised the oven heat to 475 for extra spring, and put these 3 inch biscuits into the oven without any glaze.  Only after baking did I brush them with melted butter.

Oh my, OINK! OINK!  Everyone was pigging out on your wonderful biscuits.    (Next time, instead of using buttermilk, I think I will use milk and add pickle juice to it  — then stuff the baked biscuits with ham as a traveling sandwich).  Thank you for another great recipe, Jenny; and the applause of my family.  ~ Bunny in Chicago”

~ You’re a creative baker. Thanks so much for sharing. ~ jenny

… AND MY SIMPLE WHITE BREAD (with egg)

“Dear Jenny, I love it when leftovers and recipes do double duty; so I wanted to share. (I hope you don’t mind me sending you my variation). With a bit of leftover mashed potatoes, dried dill and dried minced onion, I turned your Simple White Bread (with egg) into one of those gourmet, sandwich breads.

First, I added 2 1/4 tsps. of dried dill to the dry ingredients in Step 1.  Then, I added 1 Tabl. of dried, minced onion to the milk in Step 2, letting the onions soak for a few mins, before warming the milk to the proper temperature in the microwave.  Then, just after Step 3, I added between 2/3 cup and 3/4 cup of microwave-warmed, leftover, mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter), to the dough and mixed it in well  before adding the final 1/4 cup of flour in step 4.

After baking, I brushed the loaf with melted butter and  let the bread completely cool before slicing. The wait was interminable, as I was pretty excited — never having made potato, onion or dill bread before.  It came out incredibly moist, tender and flavorful.  So delicious. The surface of the bread is not super smooth due to the minced onions, but worth adding them.  My loaf came out darker on top than your original Simple White Bread recipe , but brushing the top with butter makes it soft — just perfect for sandwiches.  (Perhaps I should have covered it with foil, earlier).   Thank you Jenny.  I wouldn’t have had the nerve to try this if your Simple White Bread (with egg) recipe wasn’t practically foolproof. ~ Bunny (in Chicago, IL)”

~ Your combination sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing the details for everyone. (Luv Chi-town!) ~ jenny
