Attempts at bread baking

Okay really this post should also include “or lack there of” in the title.  As mentioned, my attempt to make bread have been futile.  That said – I am learning a ton!

I really thought this goal-setting activity would be easier than it’s turning out to be.  Mainly because I’ve watched my mom make roti my entire life.  However the bread I want to make is actually not the same type of bread as roti.  I have learned that I want to make bread that rises!  I’ve learned that sometimes you need a bread maker (I don’t have one) and you almost always need a rising agent (yeast).

So far there has been a lot of reading and research and no actual baking.  With that in mind I’ve decided to make my bread making goals more specific (and possibly more complex for my non bread making self).

Okay after all of that I am committing to bake the follow breads:

Wish me luck and please leave me your bread making tips in the comments below!

A little more valentines celebration

As the weather is starting to warm and get spectacular outside – I almost forgot that I had a few last #Vday pix to share.

This year I got SPOILED by the hubz when he had these flowers delivered to me (I was #WFH).  We then enjoyed our annual valentine’s dinner of fried chicken, bisquits and gravy with mash.  I was a happy laaaadddyyy :P

The weekend prior I decided to do a valentine’s breakfast for my #fambam.  Heart shaped pancakes, heart shape strawberries, whip cream and some blueberries (the hubz fav).
