Recipe for family meals :

Cheddar Cheese Bread

This recipe comes from the the Bitchin Kitchen web site which is run by Faith Heinauer. This is what she said in describing Bitchin Kitchen:

" I grew up in a household that loved not only food, but also the creative process of cooking and entertaining. My father is a professional chef and my mother was a former pastry chef. After earning my degree in hotel and restaurant management, I joined my father's catering business and started teaching cooking classes. Growing up in the restaurant scene offers a lot of culinary observations; add my knack for experimenting in the kitchen, and you've got my collection of recipes and tricks of the trade. So, if you want to talk food, get a great recipe or hear the latest culinary scoop, you're at the right place!"

"Punch it down? Let it sit for two hours? Must knead it! Cover and wait? No, itís not a high maintenance boyfriend . . . itís a yeast-based bread.

If youíre a girl on the go and just donít have time for the yeasty-type, then make this delicious quick bread recipe. Itís spicy, flavorful and doesnít dry out in the morning. If only men were that consistent".
