Brioche Recipe – Kicking it Up For 2011

Brioche is homemade yeast bread perfection. Fluffy, with lots of eggs, it makes just about everything you put on it taste that much better.
Here we are 4 days into the new year and I have yet to declare any resolutions. I believe that stating your goals makes you more likely to achieve them and validates them with yourself and the people who are going to support you with them. That being said, I think I may have one too many aspirations for 2011, so please no stone throwing or name calling if I don’t actually live up to all of my goals.

2011 Resolutions for Pass the Sushi!


Back away from the technology: I have too many magazine subscriptions and own far too many books to justify, so this year I am making it a goal to stop bookmarking every recipe I find and start actually flipping open the pages of my books and using them. I will post one recipe a week from a non-viral source but from actual paper!


I will start educating myself on eating more sustainable, organic, and local foods. I will make every effort I can to purchase food this way (with in my financial ability).I believe this isn’t just a resolution for 2011, but a life choice. I know it’s trendy right now to be into this, but I believe it will have long term effects for people and our planet (not to mention our purse strings if this really does catch on). Ok, enough with the Greenpeace from little miss meatatarian.


I will conquer yeast! That’s right. I’m not setting the bar within reach on this one (like, I’ll get ‘good’ at making things with yeast). No! I’m out to conquer it’s single-celled ass!


I will be more daring in the kitchen. Go big or go home, right? I won’t let the name Thomas Keller scare me away from trying things. I won’t let bizarre ingredients or weird tools keep me from trying things! I won’t let the idea of pig cheeks keep me from finding a way to use them! I will rock this kitchen out in 2011 educating myself on as much as possible along the way. Sure, I’ll never go to culinary school or have a fancy pleated hat, but I can cook.
So, for 2011 and on, let’s bring home the bacon….

It took forever for my brioche dough to rise after being in the fridge over night, but once it got going, these loaves really turned out perfectly. And what does one do with a perfect loaf of homemade brioche?
Make the best French toast ever! Oh yeah, you’re gonna love that one.

Another great bread recipe! Definitely can't go wrong with brioche... I know if I made this, I'd be making a LOT of French Toast!
