Guest Post: Pita and a Bread Blog Hop

Do you have an irrational fear of yeast? Well, it’s time to get over it! See, the yeast does all the work so you don’t have to worry about the kitchen science behind it. As long as it’s fairly fresh, it will do its job. And once you get over that, the whole wide world of baking opens up to you. The Focaccia I made recently is an amazing introduction to making bread and using yeast. This pita is another. Which is why I was excited to finally tackle it when Anuradha from the amazing blog Baker Street asked me to guest post for her Bread 101 series. If you are somehow not familiar with Baker Street, head over there and check it out right now! She posts the most incredible baked goods, including her popular “Muffin Monday” series.

I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m not an expert baker. My domain is typically cooking and my preference leans towards the savory. My oven is wonky and just doesn’t get hot enough. So if I can make bread, you definitely can. The awesome thing about making pita is there’s no losing. Even if you “fail” and the bread doesn’t puff up to form those characteristic pockets, you still have a delicious flatbread. That’s a pretty good worst case scenario outcome. So go, check out my guest post at Baker Street, and then come back here and share your favorite bread recipes in the blog hop below! Have a great weekend 🙂

    Seriously, Katherine, how are you reading my mind? Ha, you are always a week ahead of me. Last week: cucumbers – I had a cucumber post scheduled for today. This week: bread – I have bread scheduled for next week!

    Love your blog hops!! The pits looks perfect! Linking up a couple of my bread recipes, if you have time and inclination you must try out the Shlotzky’s bread – A no knead sourdough bread recipe. I consider that to be my best bread recipe yet!! You’ll find the link below 🙂

    Loving this one – may be just a bit obsessed with bread! I’ll definitely bookmark this post for the linky list 😉 My trick with pita is to roll the dough thinner than you think you need it and cook directly on a pizza stone – puffs almost every time… humm, now I want some!

    I love baking! I actually have not bought much bread since I bought my kitchen aid. It is co much cheaper and often it tastes so much better to just make your own bread!

    My fiance makes mean flatbreads, he grew up on flatbreads and I can’t bake bread for the life of me! He laughed at my attempts and I’ll just leave him to the baking. I guess I’m too spoilt 😛 Your pita breads are so beautiful and it doesn’t sound so scary to make them
