I have made something similar and added dried tart cherrries. It was wunderbar!

How absolutely lovely, Vera!!

Thank you for posting all the pictures!

I am not only impressed by your skill, but by your energy! You are as busy as the rest of us, if not more so, yet you make the time and have the stamina to do all this stuff! Amazing!

I made a loaf of Italian bread for sandwiches and some rolls. I made a biga last night and added milk to the today for a softer crumb. I've already made grilled cheeze, a cold cut sandwich and some toast and dipped a roll in potato soup. I really like this bread.

I'm laughing because I did a similar thing a few days ago. I made a sourdough no-knead that was so good that I ate over 1/4 of 2# loaf before going to bed. Between the butter, olive oil and PB&J toppings, I just could not stop eating it. It's 0617 here, and I'm mixing up another one of those so I can bake it tonight after dinner.

Your breads are presenting themselves beautifully. Keep up the good work, and remember to share your bread with someone else. That is where the true joy is in this hobby.

Vera, lovely cookies. I can almost taste them. Reminds me that I need to make up a batch of oatmeal raisin for the toaster cookie jar.

Not to be redundant on purpose, but I like to post baked goods here because not everyone reads the dinner thread everyday where I sometimes post them. I made these mini-sticky buns yesterday, and turned the extra pieces into butter-cream frosted cinnamon rolls. The sticky buns are for the participants in a retreat that DW will be attending all day today. I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup for them as well yesterday.





This is their pre-baked look...

Those look great Joe! I have a craving for them, but if I make them with DH gone he feels all neglected, so I better wait

My girls have been skeptical of my sandwich bread (which is understandable because I've made some bricks in the past). But they took a bite of toast from this loaf and immediately ran in and make toast and sandwiches for themselves. I think I'll make two loaves next weekend.

Once again had some buttermilk and eggs that were about to go bad, so I whipped up a Buttermilk Lemon Pound Cake.

I guess this qualifies as baking... I made pirogen today. I make a dough with about a 70% hydration, 2% salt, except that I use the water to reconstitute some dehydrated onions first. I think I used about 50 grams of onions. When they were rehydrated, I made the dough and let it sit for a couple hours. I then scaled to 2.5 oz balls. I let the balls rest about 20 minutes, then a first round of flattening. Waited 20 and another round of flattening. The filling was short rib meat that I first cooked till very tender, reserving all the liquid and fat. I let the fat congeal and then used it to saute onions till they started caramelize. I then added minced mushrooms and cooked untill moisture from the mushrooms was gone. I minced and shredded the meat as the mushrooms cooked. When the mushrooms were done, I mixed them with the meat, seasoned with salt and pepper to taste (I go heavy on the black pepper). I then put 90 gram portions of the meat onto a piece of dough and closed it up. Let the pirogen rise a half hour and then brushed with an egg wash and sprinkled with caraway seed and maldon salt. Baked at 400F for about 20 minutes.

It's egg whites whipped with confectioner's sugar, that is spread on the dough before it is rolled up, and then "dollops" of brown sugar

Working on some mandel bread for Passover. I make the dough/batter tonight and let it chill overnight so the butter sets and they're easier to bake. I'll try to remember to post some pics tomorrow. Recipe is HERE

I made something we call Hanky Panky Pudding with Hanky Panky Sauce.

It's a long story, but it's named after my friend, Hank. It's a very custardy bread pudding with a layer of caramelized apples on top, served with a warm Calvados sauce.

Did everyone stop baking ????

I made these today out of Hamelman's Bread book. It's called "Rustic Bread," with whole wheat and rye.
