The Bread

I tried baking some bread again last night.  Didn’t turn out how I expected, but it was still really good.

I tried “The Bread” from my post on November 16th.  I didn’t have a cast iron dutch oven, but had a cast iron skillet with pretty high sides and a bunch of foil.  I think the dough wasn’t quite firm enough because when I baked it, it was kind of this semi-flat, roundish blob.  It rose, don’t get me wrong… it just didn’t look like the picture from the recipe.

But the flavor… whoa!  I added 3 Tbsp of minced garlic and about 2 Tbsp of fresh, chopped rosemary.  Omg did it taste good!!!

I think we both enjoy this whole baking bread thing.  I need to remember to take pictures…

The Popovers

I made popovers on Monday night for the first time.  They rose but didn’t pop – over.  They looked kinda like chef hats.  Look:

Pop overs that didn't pop - over

Flavor was okay.  I’m not a huge fan of blandness, so I might try to spice it up or add some vanilla/cinnamon mix next time.  And fill the pans a little more.  I think that was the problem.


I never made any of the pumpkin recipes I’d posted before, and I still have a can of pumpkin in the cupboard staring me down.  Out of season, yes… but oh so tasty!  To heck with red for valentines day – I’m going orange!  😀
