I am just going to be up front. I baked so much at Christmas, used so much butter and sugar etc. that I got baked out! I didn't think it was possible. Yes, I have still been baking bread to have in the house but I have been avoiding any desserty type of things. And it's more than that...I gained weight....it was like I took the pounds of butter and simply applied it to my hips, thighs...etc. And now I have been on a diet as well as exercising. When I am on a diet, everyone in the house is...well it is only "Camera Guy" and me now.
And so I missed the last Daring Baker's Challenge - and it was a good one too. But I will do the next one. I promise.
I just baked a delicious chocolate bread. Club Med used to have a great Chocolate bread that everyone would rave about. But this one is BETTER... I will post about it shortly....
In the meantime, I have joined The Bread Challenge, a group of enthusiastic amateur and professional bakers of artisan breads who have joined together to bake their way through Jeffrey Hamelman's landmark book, Bread: A Baker's Book of Techniques and Recipes . The challenge is open to anyone ...just go to the site to learn more and join us! I am off to make the first bread! YAYYYY!!!!
