it’s bread. smile  my very first loaf of bread made from scratch.

recipe said 2 tsp of salt.  it’s a tad too salty to my tastebuds.  i don’t have table salt, i baked it with kosher salt, which i thought was what i was supposed to use for baking.  next loaf i’ll try it with 1 tsp.

it’s lovely crispy on the outside.  steam came out when i cut it.  there was a thin line that looked a lil doughy still, but the internal heat made it keep on baking inside.  so fluffy. 

nommnommnomm

sends homemade bread out to the interwebs.  lil plate of olive oil with fresh ground pepper for bread dipping.

some campbel tomato soup later for more delicious bread dipping.

Can you come to my house and make me some homemade bread?

I recommend keeping a note book of the recipies you try and any changes you feel you need to make to them.

Bread is easy, just have to have time for the dough to rise (sometimes twice depending on recipie)

don’t even need a loaf pan, just grease a cookie sheet and mound it up like the sourdough loaves.,

this is a good place to start..

I used to like making Bread rolls, all different shaped ones. Sometimes even made animals for the kids.

i was just reading up on the baker’s stones.  it distributes the heat in the oven so’s the dough cooks evenly.

it takes practice to make cappuccino froth?

the instructions said the frothing nozzle should be just blow the surface of the milk. i used 2% milk.
it made a latte like foam and it all sank into the espresso, froth is supposed to float mainly on top of the espresso?
at starbucks they spoon the froth from the pitcher, but i didn’t end up with spoonable froth. ??

double shot of espresso, should be able to stay awake for rendering t’nite LOL

Sundays!  or ... sundaes tee hee.  homemade ice cream one day soon.
