Breads

Breads are the foundation of cooking in European as well as American Countries. 
Today, in specialized bakeries, you can even buy 11 grain bread. 
Whole grain dark breads have become more popular mostly due to their high fibre content. 
Bread is such a powerful food that in antiquity Egyptian governments controlled it from production to distribution as a means of controlling the populace. 
One can use mashed acorns, ground beans, crushed tree barks, nuts, or chestnut flour, but most balers use primarily finely milled wheat, or rye corn, barley, millet, kamut, spelt and other grains. Wheat flour is preferred because of its gluten content. 
The greatest thing since sliced bread" is a phrase commonly used to describe an innovative achievement. 
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid, E300) is added to "improve" and strengthen the flour, making it easier to mix the dough at high speed. 

Buns

A cross bun kept from one Good Friday to the next was thought to bring luck. 
Buns can be long and skinny, short and round and or come in many different shapes and sizes. 

Pasta

The Chinese are on record as having eaten pasta as early as 5,000 B.C. 
In the 13th century, the Pope set quality standards for pasta. 
There are more than 600 pasta shapes produced worldwide. 
To cook one billion pounds of pasta, you would need 2,021,452,000 gallons of water—enough to fill nearly 75,000 Olympic-size swimming pools. 
Christopher Columbus, one of Italy's most famous pastaphiles, was born in October, which is now National Pasta Month. 
Pasta existed for thousands of years before anyone ever thought to put tomato sauce on it. The Spanish explorer Cortez brought tomatoes back to Europe from Mexico in 1519.

Thanksgiving: A Wonderful Day
When you were a child, this was the time of year you couldn’t wait for. The holiday season, from Halloween all the way through New Year’s Day, seemed like one long feast for your eyes and taste-buds. And, of course, the anticipation of Santa’s visit was the fuel that kept you giddy, the whole time.
