So, while I was in Maryland, we went to an Italian restaurant where I had a lasagna that was filled with crab, spinach, artichokes, Monterey jack and chipptle pepper cream. It was amazing.

So I was suddenly craving it again last night, but I don't live in Maryland, so I went to Wal-mart and bought the ingeredients and made up my own thing. It came out almost better than the original. If anyone's interested, I'll post what I did. It was super easy to make for how great it is.

Pics to come.

Also, arw, that spread IS amazing. And peanut butter cookies with kisses are my favorite cookie.

Sounds tasty! Post away!


I made a loaf of bread this afternoon in my bread machine, and it turned out rather wonky looking.

It is! This type of bread (Bloody Mary bread) is fabulous for eating with chicken or turkey sandwiches.

i've never heard of that kind of bread - what has it got in it??

i love my bread machine! i use it a lot, nearly every other day to make bread for my family - i love that it has a timer so you can wake up to the smell of fresh baked bread at some unearthly hour when i remember to set it all up before going to bed lol!

i also use it a lot just for making different kinds of dough, pizza dough, and dough for different kinds of breads, brioche, kanelbullar and bread rolls that i then shape by hand and bake in the oven... very handy when you're pushed for time but still want home-baked bread...

My bread machine is extremely ancient, so it doesn't have a timer. Even if it did, I'd never use it, since the machine is so incredibly noisy. It's hard to watch TV or anything during the kneading process. All that being said, I love my machine to bits. Greatest invention ever. I make about a loaf a week.

Here's the recipe:
  • 1 package yeast
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp soft butter
  • 1 6oz can of spicy V8 juice
  • 1 Tbsp vodka
  • 1 egg

In my recipe book (that came with the machine) it says to put all the ingredients in the order it was listed, and at room temperature. Bake on the white bread setting.

cool! thanks for the recipe Thora! i'm not sure if i can get V8 juice here but will have a look! i wonder if i could just use tomato juice with a dash of tabasco??

my machine is about 7 years old but still working ok! it's not toooooo noisy, but sometimes when i set it on timer and then stay up working late i forget it's on and it makes me jump out of my skin when it suddenly starts kneading lol!!

i couldn't be without mine now... when it eventually breaks down i would like to get one that also makes jam lol!!

my everyday loaf is super simple to make, rustic half-half wholegrain/brown loaf (French "pain de campagne" flour + wholegrain flour)

1 pk dried yeast
250 g of each type of flour
three-quarter teaspoon salt
325 ml water

then bake on the French bread setting - the whole cycle takes 6 hours from start to finish... will take a photo of the next one lol!!

Yup, that would work. I didn't have any V8 juice in the house, but I did have Clamato (tomato & clam juice) and added a bit of hot sauce to it.

Ahh, I think I have you beat. My machine was made in about 1992! It also makes me jump out of my skin when it starts up the kneading process.

I know this machine isn't going to last forever, so I will suck it up and buy a new one when the time comes, but for right now it's working totally fine. *knock on wood*

8 oz monterey jack
I used about 3/4 pack of imitation crab
lol, uh, two handfuls of spinach, chopped...it needed more than that, though.
7 oz can of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 teaspoon salt for taste, it really brought out the chipotle.

For the chipotle sauce,
1/2 cups of sour cream,
3 teaspoons of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.

Mix it all together, and bake it in the lasagna for around 30 minutes at 350. Might want to play with that yourself, because ours came out a little oddly cooked, But that's basiically what you do!

while i'm at it, here are some xmas baking piccies!

home-made mince pies - do you have these outside the UK or are they just a traditional UK thing?? my french friends are quite bemused by them as they expect them to be made of meat - they're made with mincemeat (raisins, sultanas, currants, candied orange peel, lemon and orange zest, glace cherries, and apples, all finely chopped and steeped in alcohol, then cooked down gently with suet, and stored in preserve bottles) - our christmas isn't christmas without mince pies - i love those christmassy smells wafting thru the kitchen lol!:


xmas cake - jamaican fruit cake with marzipan and fondant icing:


yule log - joconde sponge filled and iced with French chocolate butter cream:


also made proper christmas pudding but didn't manage to get a photo! i set it alight at the table and served it hot with rum sauce for christmas dinner - YUM

christmas seriously is my fave time of year baking/food-wise...
