French Toast Bagels | girlversusdough.com @stephmwise

When I was a youth, I hated breakfast. I don’t know if it was because I hadn’t tasted the glorious taste of coffee yet (that was at age 15 and I haven’t gone a single day since without it, save a few weeks early in my pregnancy when I couldn’t stomach it but I’d rather not talk about those dark, caffeine-free days), or because I never knew the magic that is a soft scramble or over-easy egg, or because I had one too many run-ins with those chewy chocolate chip granola bars that, at the time, I sort of liked but now I can’t really stand because I’m a food blogger/food snob and I need me only homemade granola bars, thankyouverymuch.

Now that I’m old and wise (er, older and wiser), breakfast has become my favorite meal of the day. I crave it before I go to bed at night. I dream of it in my sleep. I plan my breakfasts days in advance with great zeal — not even kidding. And that’s why I was extra-excited about my breakfast plans this week: Because this week, every breakfast is a French toast bagel. (!!!)

Parker House Rolls and KitchenAid 11-Cup Food Processor {Giveaway} | girlversusdough.com @stephmwise

(This giveaway is closed.)

Rolls, rolls, rolls! And no, I’m not talking about what happens to my body when I eat too many rolls. Um, awkward.

I’m just saying it’s been a bit of a bread roll party around here, and if that’s OK with you, it’s OK with me. Because when the fluffiest and softest and cuddliest — er, most delicious of Parker House rolls are invited, it’s the best kind of roll party. Whatever that is. Right.

ANYWHO. Let’s talk about (dinner) rolls!

If you’ve never made a Parker House roll from scratch before, now is the time. And if you’ve never eaten a Parker House roll before, the situation is even more dire — because you must. You must try them. They are the epitome of dinner roll goodness. When you think of the perfect dinner roll — all warm and soft and fluffy on the inside with a slight crust and crunch on the outside — you are most definitely envisioning a Parker House roll. You just might not know it. And guess what? They’re the easiest things ever to bake right at home, too. So that’s a win-win-win right there (extra win for the eating part, obviously).

Parmesan Pesto Skillet Rolls | girlversusdough.com @stephmwise

Quiz time! (This one is fun, promise.)

Question: What is cheesy and pesto-y and carb-y and one of the best creations to come out of my oven?

If you answered these Parmesan pesto skillet rolls, ding ding ding! You are correct. Gold star for you. No, a roll for you. And one for me, too, because writing quizzes is hard.

You know what isn’t, though? Making and eating these delicious rolls of cheesy, pesto-y, carb-y deliciousness. I know I tell you approximately every day that you need to get A, B or C carbs into your life, but I mean it the most this time. If you’ve got a spare minute to bake this weekend, make that time for these rolls. If you feel like you need to have a side dish to go with that soup on the stove, make it these rolls. If you just want to bake slash eat all the cheesy bread (with extra pesto, please!), get these rolls in your life.

They’re pillowy, they’re tender and soft, they’re filled with cheese and pesto and then also topped with cheese and pesto and you can eat them straight from the oven while they’re still warm and the cheese is ooey-gooey and melty and the light crust is still lightly crusty and no seriously, I’ll be right back because I need to go get another one of these rolls right now. For the love of cheese and pesto.

Thin and Crispy Einkorn Pizza Crust | girlversusdough.com @stephmwise

As I mentioned on the Instagram, last week turned out to be an accidental pizza week around these parts. And that was A-OK with me.

On Tuesday, we had some friends over for dinner and we made homemade pizza with my favorite no-knead crust. Then on Thursday, I made this pizza — this deliciously flaky, thin and crispy pizza crust made from einkorn flour (which I will explain more about in a sec, NOT TO WORRY) topped with roasted potatoes (that taste like potato chips on a pizza, major swoooooon), fresh mozzarella, red onion, roasted garlic and fresh rosemary. Then on Friday, I made a dessert pizza with a sugar cookie crust for a client.

You may say all that pizza-ing is just too much; I say it was glorious, and I hope to repeat it one day — nay, week — soon. Probably like next week.

Until then, memories of this pizza in particular will linger as it was my favorite of the whole week. I mean, potato chips on a pizza, guys. You just can’t go wrong with the carbs-on-carbs combo.

Cranberry Walnut Bagels | girlversusdough.com @stephmwise

First, we had peppermint brownies. Then, carmelitas. Now, these cranberry walnut bagels. In other news, I am officially set for the winter with carbs (lolololololz, just kidding. I can never have too many carbs).

Speaking of carbs, a story: Last week, my husband approached me with an idea. “I’m reading a preview of this book,” he said. “OK,” I said, probably while eating one of the aforementioned carbs. “It’s called ‘Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog.’ I think I want to order it,” he said.

Here’s where you think I’m totally kidding about the title of the book. I am not. This is real life, guys.

Continuing: “From what I’ve read so far, the writer says you should eat more fatty foods like bacon and cheese and fewer carbs like bread and bagels. What do you think?”

It’s like the man doesn’t even know me.
