This blog is a culmination of two forever-bakers who have spent countless hours reading about, thinking about, and dreaming about baking delicious treats in our spare time. After taking a few cake decorating classes, our interest has soared to no end. While living and working in the same city has been a sweet treat in itself, a move across the state has spawned the desire to keep in touch by taking our love of baking and everything kitchen to the next level. So wipe your feet on the mat and stay awhile!

Garlic Thyme Croutons

I love buying freshly baked bread at the grocery store.  The only problem is that is goes stale waaaay too fast.  And one person can only eat so much bread in 3 days.  So I make croutons with the leftovers.  They are quick to make, and you can control the salt and ingredients.  Not to mention they taste worlds better than those hard-as-a-rock store bought croutons.

Homemade Garlic Thyme Croutons

Day old bread, about half a loaf
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried thyme
olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cut the loaf into about 1 inch cubes.  You can make the cubes smaller if you like.  Spread on a baking sheet in a single layer.  Drizzle olive oil over cubes, just enough to coat.  Sprinkle garlic powder and thyme over cubes, then toss cubes with a rubber spatula to ensure even coating.  Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
