How To Make Garlic Bread
Garlic bread really is some of the best stuff on earth. Growing up in the 80s, I can’t remember a pizza dinner, church basement potluck dish, or softball game after-party that didn’t have a giant mound of buttery garlic bread somewhere in the vicinity. And it was always gone by the time the paper plates were cleared. Bread, butter, garlic. That’s all you need for a truly outstanding, party-winning batch of garlic bread.

Well, I’m in trouble now because I just discovered how to make these little cheese puffs. With their addictive cheesiness? They are super easy to make at home.

5 Ways to Tell When Dough is Kneaded
Knowing when you can stop kneading the dough is among the more mysterious aspects of baking bread. Sure, it’s no longer a wobbly mess of bubble-gummy dough, but is it really done? To find out, there are ways to tell whether the dough is ready after kneading it for 10-12 minutes by hand or 8-10 minutes in a mixer. Here are a few clues to look for. The point of kneading dough is to strengthen the gluten, which are the stringy bands of proteins that give bread its structure and texture.

Is Fresh Yeast Important When Baking Bread?
I don’t bake with yeast all that often, but I always reach for the packets of dry yeast when I do. But what about those little cakes of fresh yeast, the ones professional bakers are always talking about? It was time to find out more about fresh (or cake) yeast, and see what the fuss was all about. How is it different from dried yeast, is it easy to use, and would breads made from fresh yeast taste better?

Kitchen Science: Demystifying Gluten
Ah, gluten. Bread bakers love it and pastry chefs keep it at a respectful distance. So what’s the deal with gluten and what can we oh-so-humble home cooks do about it?All flour contains a certain percentage of protein, ranging from 8% for cake flour to around 13% for durum semolina (pasta) flour. When activated, these proteins cling together to form strands of gluten.

Why Does Pita Bread Mold So Fast? (And How To Stop It?)
Q: Why does pita bread mold so quickly? I love pitas for sandwiches, dipping, chips, etc. but every time I buy some it molds in my cupboard or on my shelf within a day or two (long before I can eat it all). I hate to stick it in the freezer immediately because that takes away its fluffiness and freshness.My other breads don’t mold this quickly. What’s the deal? And, is there any way to avoid pita molding?!
