Rainbow Bread & Spinach Dip ;

Hmm.. not bad for my first time making bread.
it tasted like the inside of any regular loaf, without crust. haha
i just thought trying this out, would make for interesting touches for my
future bentos.
But if anyone has a good recipe for bread, id love to try it.
just contact me personally, or leave me a comment on here .
i loooovee asian bakery sweet breads,
i wonder if ill be able to find a good recipe for it..
Rainbow Bread
the most simple and basic bread, with a colorful twist.
great for sandwich subs, or just  
toasted with garlic butter!
(see below)
and the great part is? since YOURE the one making the
bread, you can make it as thick or as thin as you want.
thicker for more plushy soft bread, or as thin as a crunchy
bread stick !
Recipe ;
- 1/14 cups warm water
- 1tbs sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/4 tsp yeast
in a large bowl, add in the warm water & sugar. once its
dissolved, add in yeast & let it sit for 10 mins. You should
be able to see the yeast start to grow. Then, add the flour &
salt, and mix thoroughly for a couple minutes, (it will help
reduce kneading time) continue to add flour by 1/2 cup
portions until the dough is smooth, & no longer sticky.
Once the dough is done, divide the dough into portions of
desired color (i used 3, so i cut mine into 3rds). i added
about 8 drops of food coloring to each dough ball ( red,
yellow, & blue) and kneaded until the colors were solid
through-out. (it might take a bit of man-power if you`re
planning to do this by hand). Then i rolled out my dough
into long ropes, and wetted the edges as i braided, so each
rope would stick. Once youre done, place the dough on a 
greased & floured baking sheet & let it sit for an hour
(more rising time will produce a lighter bread.)
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degree F, and bake for about
25 mins. Bread should make a hallow sound when tapped
on bottom if done.
Dip & Rainbow Garlic Bread
yum yum, the recipe for the "4 Cheese Spicy Spinach Dip"
is below, but using your own garlic buttered bread to eat
with dip is amazing!
Recipe ;
- 1/2 stick butter
- 1 tbs garlic powder
- 1 tsp dill
combine all 3 ingredients, and spread over thin sliced,
toasted bread. (the thinner, the more "chip-like" it`ll be)
yum ! enjoy~
haha, had to ask for a hand model
"4 Cheese Spicy Spinach Dip"
so good ! warm, bubbly, gooey spinach cheese dip?
marvelous !
Recipe ;
- 8oz cream cheese (1 reg sized package)
- 3/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 3 tbs pepper jack cheese
- 2 tbs spicy red pepper, finely chopped (canned or jarred)
- 1/4 cup onions
- 1/2 package of frozen chopped spinach
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
- pinch of cayenne pepper
Preheat your oven to 400 Degree F. Combine all the
ingredients into the cream cheese, one at a time, & add
mixture into a baking dish. Sprinkle the pinch of cayenne
pepper over the top, & add the grated cheddar as well.
*Serves 4
