I made another recipe in the Baking at Home with the CIA and it was yummy. The recipe, White Wheat Bread, was easy to make and pretty quick for yeast bread. The bread reminded me of the hot white bread loaves you get at restaurants before dinner. The only trouble was scoring the bread. I really need a straight razor to make a clean neat cut. I also need to make a deeper cut. Hopefully I make another loaf soon.

I have found a very cool website. I think I might just have to get their catalog. The site is www.boiledpeanuts.com. They sell southern food a staples for those of us who can not get their favorite southern snacks like boiled peanuts!!!! I love boiled peanuts! The coolest thing is the t-shirt with the solgan, "I brake for Boiled Peanuts." I might just have to get me one of dem.

I received a wonderful book for my birthday, CIA Baking at Home. It is great and it teaches you how to make bread,s pastries, cakes, desserts and all good things baked. So, I read through the intro to the book and decied I would try and bake everything in it start to finish. I don't know if I'll be able to meet this challenge, but I will try. The first recipe is a honey wheat yeast bread. The recipe is one of the easiest yeast bread recipes I've seen. The bread turned out o.k., but it browned to fast. The only problem was the instructions for putting the bread in the baking pan. I ended up up with good tasting bread that was a little too brown and had a skinny center. All and all it was a good recipe with decent results.
