Watching the British Baking Show has inspired me for this year’s Challenge. One of the competitors was doing a Breads of the World challenge–he had gotten some 90 out of 120 or so. I’m not sure I need to do that many, but I’d love to try a bunch of different breads this year. I… Continue reading Bread Challenge 2020

OK, this is not a very successful attempt. The recipe I was using was WRONG. It said very clearly to prepare TWO swiss roll tins, then it had you make the batter and put it into the pan. Singular–pan. I missed that little detail but never did figure out what the second tin was for! … Continue reading Victoria Sandwiches
Thanks to my beloved brother, I have yet another blog to update and edit, but this one is for me and all my crazy adventures and personal challenges. I hope you’ll follow along with me and maybe we’ll both learn some new stuff. See, for years, I had made resolutions and broke resolutions. Some lasted… Continue reading New Year, New Challenge
