OK - today's baking - a lemon bread - in the freezer now - but after I cut off an end slice to taste. Had to. New recipe I'd never done before. Fortunately there was a chocolate banana loaf coming out of the oven soon - so I denied myself a second slice of lemon. Yes - it was THAT good! Chocolate banana bread also had a very tasty end slice. Another Newbie - so HAD to check. On the way to the freezer soon - before hubby gets home and knows anything about them!

With all that baking it sounds like you may have left overs,
I can give you my address if you have nowhere for them to go...

The last of the cookies are baked and in the freezer. Now I have to find friends that have room in their freezers for me to store my stuff for a few days. Had to purchase a new refrigerator before my present side by side gives out on me completely and I lose everything stored there. Delivery scheduled for Tuesday.

I'm going to make some appetizers today from a Canadian Living magazine. They looks simple but yummy! The base is a white bread, flattened, put in a mini muffin pan, baked, cooled and stored in fridge or freezer. Then you can add fillings before serving: fig jam and gorgonzola cheese and a sprig of fresh parsley, salami, goat chees and fresh basil, brie cheese, dried cranberries and honey and the list goes on.

Going to try baking with yeast tomorrow. Other than Belgian waffles - it's been a while since I've done any yeast baking. It's so time consuming: letting the dough rise; kneading till shiny. But it's SO GOOD when it's done.

Will let you know if the body rises up to the mind's plans!

My grandmother and one of my aunts were the most fantastic bread makers. I remember what we called "covered wagons" that grams baked that looked just like those prairie schooners but were actually a form of cinnamon roll. We used to slather them in butter as soon as she would let us and eat them while they were still pretty warm. My aunt was famous in the area for her "air" buns, they were just so light and fluffy. That's what she was always asked to bring to any gathering! Hope your yeast baking fares as well observer!

Sorry to report the wine won out over the yeast! LOL

Not really - just couldn't get work myself up to needing the kneading today!
