Feta, Parmesan & Scallions Bread Rolls

This post is short and sweet. Am sharing with you these rolls I baked mid-week. I hope you enjoy them. Great for any occasion. They freeze really well after cooling off and reheat wrapped with foil at a 350F preheated oven for 10-15 minutes.

Dark Pumpernickel Rye Bread

My love affair with Pumpernickel began when I arrived in the United States twenty some odd years back and the romance to this date is still going strong. Me and my Pumpernickel are quite the pair. When it is sold out at the farmer's market or local baker's, to say I feel a sense of betrayal might be an exaggeration, but I get a sinking feeling of deep disappointment. My heart is set on Pumpernickel and I can't pick a second 'yeasted' best. Don't they know to reserve it?! I would appreciate it!

Thyme Infused Ugli Fruit, Ruby Red Grapefruit & Meyer Lemon Sorbet

Ugli is a registered trademark for a tangelo, a citrus fruit, from Jamaica. The original tree discovered in Jamaica is believed to be a natural hybrid between a grapefruit, an orange and a tangerine. The variety that is imported out of Jamaica today has gone through some metamorphosis. I was reluctant for years to purchase it but this year I couldn't contain my curiosity, especially when I saw a crop that didn't seem to pass its prime. The price was per fruit so when the sign suggested to buy a heavier fruit I found it credible. The instruction made sense, when fruit is past its peak ripeness it gets pasty and mealy, inadvertently lighter.
