100% Whole Wheat Crusty No Knead Artisan Bread (off site) - Posted on Instructables.com. Another easy recipe; adding gluten to the whole wheat helps create the "airy" texture. Uses a bread stone to achieve the "artisan" style crust... can use a Dutch oven (see the recipe for No-knead Crusty Artisan Bread for instructions), if you don't have a bread stone.
Crusty, Seedy Sourdough Rye Bread - I found the original version of this recipe on recipe.com; it is itself a modification of a recipe by Sunset Breads (1995). I upped the whole grains and simplified the technique a bit to suit myself. I use Goldrush Old Fashioned San Francisco Style Starter (http://www.goldrushproducts.com/); I mixed up an envelope with whole wheat flour and water a couple years ago to make the Mother Sponge and it lives in my fridge. When you take out some of the starter (aka Mother Sponge) to make this bread, make sure you feed the Mother - I mix up a 1/2 cup of warm water with 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and stir it back into the Mother - then I let it sit out for six hours or so before putting it back in the fridge to wait until the next baking day. The directions say to feed it once a week, but I have found that to be unnecessary. A link to the original recipe is here: http://www.food.com/recipeprint.do?rid=170558.
No-knead Crusty Artisan Bread (off site) - Posted on "The Comfort KItchen." Very easy, uses a Dutch oven instead of a bread stone.
Plain French Bread (Pain Français) (off site) - Posted on the Epicurious web site. Step-by-step, easy-to-follow instructions for making Julia Child's version of French Bread. Whole wheat works, but makes a heavier loaf than white wheat (but it's still very tasty!). - Link posted March 7, 2018.
Sunflower-Millet Bread (from The Enchanted Broccoli Forest and Other Timeless Delicacies, by Mollie Katzen) - An awesome recipe from an awesome cookbook by an awesome author! Ms. Katzen handprinted and illustrated several amazing cookbooks in the late 70's and early 80's; they were beautiful works of art, full of entertaining writing, and - of course - tasty recipes! I used to use these books all the time in my hippy-ish youth. :) I was digging through them recently and decided that I needed to make this bread... If you track down the original book (and I very much recommend that you do!), you'll find the original recipe on page 99, which general bread baking instructions on pages 86-88 (including a fun, but educational" "illustrated guide" that baking novices will find very helpful). I've consolidated the bread baking instructions and recipe on one page for your convenience.

Low Calorie Banana Bread (off site) - Posted on AboutFood.com. Applesauce replaces half of the butter and sugar in the typical version, cutting both calories and fat.
Seeded Whole Grain Soda Bread (off site) - Posted on Bon Appetit web site. Extremely yummy and filling. I use olive oil instead of butter It works will with different seeds, if you don't have all the different kinds called for in the recipe (millet, quinoa, amaranth, flaxseed, sunflower seeds) - I don't have amaranth, but I do have chia seeds, and they worked out just fine! Also, don't let the calorie count scare you off - it's based on eight servings, and IMHO, this recipe yields a LOT more than that - it bakes up into a HUGE loaf! - Posted 11/23/2015.

Cassava Flour Pizza Dough (off site) - A recipe for a gluten-free pizza crust. This page includes a recipe for vegan "cheese," which I can not vouch for, but the pizza dough is very good! The recipe suggests one might be able to use tapioca starch instead of arrowroot flour; I didn't have the arrowroot, so I had to use tapioca starch, and it works very well! - Posted on the Predominantly Paleo web site. Link posted December 30, 2016.
Gluten-free Cornmeal-Crusted Pizza with Chili - My very favorite gluten-free pizza crust so far! I top mine with tomato sauce and veggies, and a smigen of cheese, instead of chili. I use my own gluten-free flour blend: One and a half cups of brown rice flour, one and a half cups of oat flour (take some oatmeal and whiz it through the blender to make oat flour), 1 cup of white rice flour, and half a cup of potato starch... you can make your own custom blend by following the formula on Gluten-Free Girl 's web site.- Posted on King Arthur Flour's web site. - Link posted January 2, 2017.
Gluten-free Pizza Crust - Okay... I know that I said the Gluten-free Cornmeal-Crusted Pizza with Chili was my favorite pizza crust, but that was before I found this one - this is the closest thing to "real" pizza I've tasted since my doctor ordered me off gluten! :) It is thin, crispy, and delicious! It calls for gelatin, but I substituted egg white and it worked out perfectly. If you can't (or don't want to) do cheese for topping, I like this recipe for Vegan Mozzarella Cheese (I use sunflower seeds instead of cashews) - Posted on Food.com's web site. - Link posted April 1, 2017.

Healthy 5-Ingredient Flourless Banana Bread (off site) - Recipe is as advertised: The only ingredients are oatmeal, bananas, eggs, baking soda, and a bit of maple syrup - no flour! Very tasty and very easy to make! I like to make it a bit sweeter by swapping out the maple syrup for brown sugar, and adding a couple of tablespoons of maple syrup and an additional banana.

Aloo Paratha (off site) - An very good recipe for a well loved favorite in our house. I had no "coriander leaves" on hand, but when I tried to look up possible substitutes, I learned that "coriander leaves" and cilantro (which I DID have) are actually one and the same thing. I also had no chaat masala (and no way to obtain any around here), but learned that it is a mixture of garum masala, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, cayenne seeds, and powdered ginger. I'm not sure if my version was all that authentic, but it sure tasted good! :) Posted on the Times of India site. - Link posted October 22, 2018.
Baked Apple Cider Donuts (off site) - My mother-in-law loves Apple Cider Donut Holes from Atkins Farms. One day we went to fetch some for her, only to discover that they were temporarily out of production, so I hunted down this recipe. Absolutely delicious, dare I say better than Atkins? :) As you'll learn from the recipe, the secret weapon is boiling down the cider to a syrup. If you bake them in mini muffin tins, you'll achieve the same size as a traditional donut hole. - Link posted January 1, 2019.
Baked Okra "Fry" Bread - Very loosely based on "Kaye's Okra Fry Bread," this version is lower in fat and higher in fiber.

Unbelievable Bread (off site) - Very yummy! Made with quinoa and millet (like its cousin, Unbelievable Buckwheat Bread, this bread is naturally gluten-free!).

Vegetarian Steamed Buns - This recipe is located at the “straight forward recipes” site - as the site’s name promises, this is a very easy recipe to prepare.
Cornbread Pizza Crust (with Suggestion for Potato-Artichoke-Walnut topping) - About 30 years ago, I used to frequently order pizza from a little shop run by Hampshire College graduates - I can't remember the name of the shop, but I do remember their wonderful cornbread pizza crust. Peter mentioned it recently, and thought we should try to replicate it. His version is modified from Martha Stewart's recipe (http://www.marthastewart.com/313030/cornmeal-pizza-crust), adding more cornmeal and sugar for a more "corny" taste - it is delicious!
Homemade Frozen Pizza - Healthier and cheaper than buying "health" food frozen pizza at your grocery. Take a weekend afternoon to make it up, and you’ll end up with six frozen emergency (translation: "I gotta have pizza, NOW!") meals for later! :)
