Rye and Prejudice {Page to Plate Thanksgiving}

I suppose these could have been 'The Catcher in the Rye' rolls, but I liked 'Rye and Prejudice'. Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is another book I haven't read in awhile, but - honestly - it was never one of my favorites. I much prefer her Mansfield Park. But this post isn't a commentary on Austen's works, it's a recipe for some soft, tasty rolls that are a fabulous addition to your holiday table. And they're easy to boot!


  • 2 T dry, active yeast
  • 1/2 C warm water
  • 2 C plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 C unsulphered molasses
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 2 C white whole wheat flour
  • 2 C flour
  • 2 C dark rye flour
  • sage leaves, to garnish
  • fleur de sel, to garnish
  • za'atar, to garnish
  • butter for rubbing

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Let bloom for 10 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the egg and yogurt until smooth. Add olive oil, molasses and yeast mixture. Add baking soda and flour mixture slowly, beating vigorously after each addition till a stiff dough is formed.

Cover dough with a cloth and let rise in a warm place for an hour or until dough is almost doubled in size. Punch down, knead for a minute, and roll into mini boules. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle, alternately, with fleur de sel and za'atar. Press fresh sage leaves into the top of a few rolls.

Let rise for a second time for another 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake rolls for 60 minutes. When you pull the rolls out of the oven, rub the tops of the rolls with butter. Serve warm.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
