Ummm... Bad- Really, Really Bad

Yep out of the oven and into the trash! No Bread for You was the mantra this weekend. I really do wish I were joking but one slice of the Bread o' Lead and it went into the "garbahhhge" as my deddy would say.

Nope- Not a single picture to document the disaster. But it is through our mistakes that we learn bread has to be kneaded. Who wants a 2 minute massage, not me, and neither did my poor unloved bread. :) It wanted and kneaded (get it? Ha- sorry I am not above really bad jokes) 10 minutes of kneading. I am trying again this weekend. Hopefully, I will have pictures to post of a lovely loaf.

As for the cake... Well, my in-laws dropped by for dinner and I ran out of time. The sweet potato cake became chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. But I will conquer it this weekend as well.

Pie crusts will just have to wait...

  1. Jody, if you want an EASY way to make bread, I can help. http://www.amazon.com/Artisan-Bread-Five-Minutes-Revolutionizes/dp/0312362919/ref=cm_lmf_tit_1 is the book that changed it for me. The master recipe is super easy and you can have four loaves' worth of dough in your fridge at any given time. Super super easy and beautiful bread anytime you want it. If you have questions, let me know.
