Mark's Baguettes
"If you love a thick, crunchy crust on your baguette, with a slightly sour flavor, you'll love this high hydration, lean dough, 100% wild yeast recipe that uses stretches and folds instead of kneading to develop the gluten."—Mark C.

Robyn's Pita Bread
Robyn's Pita Bread
"This is like no other pita bread you've had and it's ridiculously easy to make. But the bestest part is that this large, tender pita is smothered, totally smothered, in zahtar. Zahtar is an intense Middle Eastern spice blend of sesame seeds, herbs and sumac that wakes up your taste buds. It makes this pita absolutely life transforming! Try it hot from the oven with a splash of good olive oil, some fresh made hummus and Greek olives. "—Robyn F.

SeattleDee's No Knead Sourdough With Nuts and Rosemary
"This "Almost No Knead Sort of Sourdough Bread with Walnuts, Cheese and Rosemary" is a family favorite that we enjoy still warm from the oven, slathered with butter and sprinkled with sea salt. It is also terrific toasted by the slice or grilled for panini, cubed for panzanella or in a savory strata , even as croutons for a hearty soup. Just thinking about it makes me crave a slice... or three."—SeattleDee.
Lara's No-Knead Bread
Lara's No-Knead Bread
"Working near Jim Lahey's Chelsea outpost of the Sullivan Street Bakery has it's perks (pizza bianca and fresh bomboloni but to name a few). His no-knead bread recipe is completely fool-proof and utterly delicious every time. You can spruce it up with any seasonings and yummy nuggets you wish - rosemary and black pepper make for a mighty fine smelling kitchen."—Lara S.
Regine's Gateau Battu
Regine's Gateau Battu
"I made this wonderful brioche like sweet yeast bread called Gateau Battu (beaten cake) using a recipe from joepastry.com. It is a specialty from the Northern region of France. I particularly like to eat it with butter and/or jam. It is a rich bread made with several egg yolks and more sugar and butter than other breads. It is spectacular as it is baked in a special tall brioche mold."—Regine
Ella's Pain a L'ancienne
Ella's Pain a L'ancienne
"My favorite homemade bread has got to be this pain a l'ancienne, courtesy of Peter Reihart. It is fantastically chewy and flavorful. The best part is that it is extremely simple. Mix cold water, salt, yeast, rye flour, and wheat flour. Throw mixture into the fridge. Remove from fridge, let rise, shape, let rise, and bake!"—Ella F.
Meg's Pumpkin Bread
Meg's Pumpkin Bread
"I made this bread after realizing I had gotten almost all the way through October without a pumpkin recipe entering my kitchen - unacceptable, really. It's super moist and healthy at the same time, and just as good as mini muffins before dinner."—Meg M.
