Hi Folks, if you'll have me I'd like to come back.
Won't have anything to report until a small medical crisis with my ma-in-law is resolved.
Upcoming program is a second attempt at a sourdough scone recipe supplied by Teresa, my first try was a complete disaster.
A one and a half sized batch of Don's Vienna white, made into 3 mini bags. This will be my introduction to Don's Starter which he has kindly sent me.
I will also be making my first attempt at a batch of Kaiser Rolls, bearing in mind that my first try of a new recipe [i]usually[/i] has some, shall we say, [i]interesting results[/i]. This is also another recipe supplied by Teresa.
Somewhere in among this I will have to find time to do the usual 3 loaves of white, because if I rely on getting the first three on the list right I could starve.
Just a tip and not intended as spam, if you are looking for some good recipes, in particular for different things like bagels, English muffins, and some really different breads, you might take a look at Teresa's site, and her blog. There are some free recipes and for a small fee you get access to the special recipes pages which are being added to all the time. These recipes are ones she has developed herself, and put a lot of work into I might add. The recipes are in US cup measurements, but I am pressuring her to go metric. I use a few of her recipes and my standard white loaf recipe has been changed to the free one on her website.
