Flatbread Pizza Dough Recipe

Flatbread | cookingwithcassandra.com

There’s something so comforting about homemade flatbread. It’s such a nice reminder that simple, handcrafted food is still within reach.   Like most carbohydrates, flatbread is made with the most basic ingredients that have been around for centuries: flour, salt, water, and olive oil. If you haven’t made homemade bread before, don’t let this intimidate you! Flatbread is a great place to start for beginners.   Most flatbreads have yeast as well, but I like going without it. You can never go wrong with yeastless flatbread. It just doesn’t demand that much and you don’t...

Easy Caprese Flatbread

Easy Caprese Flatbread | cookingwithcassandra.com

What is flatbread? Flatbread is leavened dough which is flattened out with your bare hands or rolling pins and then pan-fried or oven-baked. Great on its own, or with your favorite dips.  Flatbread is also used as pizza crust, welcoming any combination of toppings to enjoy it with. Flatbread has a soft texture and can be fluffy when yeast is included in the mix.  To learn how to make my flatbread from scratch, check out my quick and easy flatbread recipe! It doesn’t contain any yeast, so that means it requires no overnight proofing and saves time.  For this recipe, I’m...

Easy Caesar Salad Dressing

Caesar salads are one of those classic side dishes on the menu that’s hard to go wrong with. It’s got crisp romaine lettuce, crunchy croutons, and cheese. There are also added protein options, such as grilled chicken breasts, cajun shrimp, salami, and bacon.   The thing that makes a Caesar salad spectacular, I believe, is the dressing that ties it all together. It is rich with flavors from anchovies, garlic mayonnaise, cheese, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce, all blended together.  I decided to take a stab at making homemade Caesar salad dressing, and can you believe it...

No Yeast Bread

No Yeast Bread Sliced | cookingwithcassandra.com

We love our bread, we love our butter. But most of all, we love each other.  PLEASE tell me you know what TV show this line is from!  If you don’t…. It’s from “Madeline”, the cartoon series, which I’ve just learned was created in 1993. This French/Canadian show is about the life of a young, free-spirited girl in boarding school. She’s always heading on daring adventures in her yellow dress, yellow hat, and yellow umbrella. Madeline was an iconic part of my childhood.  The most memorable and adorable scene is the one where the girls say grace before eating their food in the...
