Our Daily Bread…

I think that one of the most basic yet complex recipe is bread.

I love going from this…

Shaped Dough

to this….
Basic Bread

For week one of my 52 weeks of baking I chose a basic bread recipe. Nothing extravagant just a simple bread dough. But that bread dough has so many uses. You can knead out your frustrations at your boss plus it’s a great upper body work out.

From this basic recipe you can make rolls or a loaf. I chose loaf this time. ( I usually brush off excess flour but it’s my first time taking pictures of my processed so I got distracted).

What I love about bread is that there are so many. Challah (I made this last Christmas, I suck at the braid), Sourdough, Cinnamon Raisin, Brioche, Ciabatta. During this 52 weeks I want to xcover as many different breads as I can, they usually start with the same basic ingredients.



This particular loaf was used to make a tuna salad sandwich the following day for lunch.


Hey There…

I am a crocheter and I recently got into swaps and was introduced to swap-bot but I didn’t find any crochet swaps that interested me. I did however find a baking swap that didn’t look like to much trouble. I like to bake and I am always complaining to myself that I didn’t do enough. The swap … 52 weeks of baking. It’s a weekly e-mail swap and I don’t have to participate every week if I didn’t want to. This was perfect, I just had to bake, take pictures and then email my assigned partners. I would include pictures of my “masterpiece” and a few details about my baking experience, a link to the recipe and any changes that I made. Perfect ♥♥♥♥♥

Now this blog…. I have always liked to cook (kind of) so why not share my experiences with anyone who was willing to read about it. I have make gnocchi and ravioli from scratch. I make cheesecakes (when I am inclined). I once made a Boston Cream Pie. I take two or three recipes and put them together to make something new. I am hoping this blog keeps me motivated cause I do tend to lapse every once in a while.

Well I guess that’s my introduction, I hope you enjoy my life in the kitchen.
