Here I am again!! I've been slacking on blogging :( I've been kind of up and down with motivation lately. One day I'm going crazy "nesting" and the next all I want to do is curl up on the couch and do absolutely nothing....that is quite impossible though with a toddler! I'll blame my lack of motivation on the little anderson jellybean I'm growing :)
I have been making some delicious loaves of bread lately! In an attempt to get started on one of the things on my list (make all the bread in my bread bible!)
above is a Vienna loaf. It was so delicious! Very light and airy, with a sesame seed crust. Made for a great sandwich. It begins with a starter so it's sourdough-ish.
Here you see a whole wheat loaf. I believe this would have been very good if I had cooked it completely! I thought it was done, but to my surprise it wasn't :( we couldn't finish it. There is nothing worse than under cooked bread!!I'll try it again though. Wheat flour is a lot more dense and requires a little more cook time.
And here you see a loaf of white mountain bread. I've made this before. It is one of my favorites. Made with milk and honey, it is oh so delicious. From crust to crust, you savor every morsel!
I think I'm running low on bread making materials so I'm not sure when I will make more. Time for more flour, and maybe some special ingredients for different types of bread.
I love baking bread! The smell is like none other.
My apologies for the poor lighting in the photos. I'm trying to figure out how to fix this as my house offers little natural light....any suggestions?
