Yet again, it's been weeks since I've posted (not counting my giveaway posts). I can blame the first part of the absence on exams. And then...the rest I can blame on recovering from my exams! Of course, now that I've mostly recovered, it starts up again in a week and a half. At least this time, when they're over, they'll really be over! I will be finished with my first year in just about 2 weeks, and it can't come soon enough.
But anyway, about the cooking. I've actually made a lot of stuff in the past few weeks. It's going to be hard to know where to start. I've become a little obsessed with making bread. First, there's my Amish Friendship Bread. I've cooked with it twice so far. Then from that, I decided I wanted to make a sourdough starter. That was not so successful. The basic recipe was to start with a cup each of flour and water, and then once a day throw away half and add back 1/2 cup each of flour and water. It was supposed to start bubbling and doing exciting things within a few days. I gave it a week, and the only thing it grew was mold. So I gave up on that. I figure that if I want to eventually start using a sourdough starter, I'll just order one from King Arthur Flour. My latest obsession has been Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. I've cooked one loaf so far and it was amazing.
I'm going to post about each separately - easier to find.
