I love you, but I don't have a lot to say.
I have test knitting which I can't show you yet.
I have not been doing much other than sleep and/or try to catch up on laundry (if I do laundry every day, why do we still have more?)
I will feed you pictures of bread:
This morning's bread---yummy (Basic Boule with some Rosemary thrown in the batter)
I tried this egg/toast combo that was posted on the Bread Book site here:
Thoughts: Next time, my dough needs to be smaller and thinner--mine was thick and ended up like soft bread (I am not complaining!).
I had to cook it a bit longer and ended up cranking the oven up to 400 (I was preheating for bread also).
It was really good and a nice way to get an egg in for breakfast!
One day a couple of weeks ago, Princess B wanted cinnamon buns (the ones from the store with the frosting you pour over)--but I knew I could make better.
I didn't end up using a recipe from the book for this, as I didn't want to make up a new batch of dough.
I used my Step-Mom's amazing sticky bun recipe (from a sourdough starter) and added both cinnamon and chocolate chips (It comes with it's own syrupy-yummy addictive sticky sauce)
(Contrary to popular thought--that is not a sugar bun with sauteed mushrooms)
I have use the pizza dough recipe:
and the Vermont Cheddar (No pictures as we pretty much devoured it when it came out of the oven)
I've also made a baguette (hmmm no pictures of that one either..)
So, the bread is amazing, I am in love with the book.
AND AND AND They are developing a new book full of healthy recipes, gluten free breads etc.
Oh, and in case you want to try out the basic bread, I found this youtube video which gives the basic recipe.
(Oh, and the amazing Chef/Baker who Co-Authored the book commented on my blog a few posts back!!!)
