Well, not really, but if you've never made bread before this should be yours. It's easy, requires no kneading, and results in two wonderful loaves.
This is a sticky batter dough so don't worry when it turns out that way.
A note: while this can be done with a mixer, breads are much heavier than cakes; it should not be attempted without a good stand mixer, such as a Kitchen-Aid. I rarely use mixers, preferring to do it by hand.
This is a traditional Russian bread served in restaurants, much as ours serve Italian breads. Russians measure ingredients for breads by weights, so this recipe may look a little different than you are used to but it works out well.
A traditional Russian dish, this recipe is from a Russian friend I work with. She has shared a number of reciepes with me, this is the best. The only changes have been to de-metric the recipe.
This makes for an impressive entree for a romantic dinner with candles and a fine wine. It's not fast, but Russians are never in a hurry for a good meal, why should you be?
The roasted peppers sets this chili apart. Mildly spicy, but with a full flavor - you won't miss the meat! Great for vegetarians, or during Lent. This recipe is made for a slow-cooker, as it allows the full flavor to develop.
