I did finish one sock of the three pairs that I am working on but that isn't enough for knitting pictures. So instead I am going to show you some of the stuff that I have been baking. Baking in July is crazy, I know!! But when I get the urge I just have to!!
The bread is a brioche dough from the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I saw this book mentioned on Angry Chicken (who, by the way, has a great book herself called Bend The Rules Sewing). She has lots of great things on her blog. I love bread and she had given this book such a good review that I had to get it. I have made a few loaves so far and they have all been good. The Brioche bread is a sweet bread with a soft crusty. It was really tasty with butter and strawberry jam.
The muffins are Oatmeal muffins from the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook. These muffins were really good. Just slightly sweet. Really good for breakfast. Both daughters liked them so I would say that I will make them again.
The Magnolia Bakery cookbook has a great recipe for a vanilla cupcake. I made them for Daughter Dos's birthday and they were awesome. I love baking! (If you are looking for a great cheesecake recipe... I happen to know a one that I keep top secret! If you ask nicely I might share it with you!)
