I have some time between my classes each day. The other day I decided to see if there were any books that looked good that I could check out from the library. And guess what. THERE WERE!!!! I found one that is all about making bread, so I decided to go on a bread making kick. And what fun it is! Here are some pictures of some of the breads that I've already made:

Here is my bread rising in it's pan.

Here's a picture under the towel!

Finished product!!!!!

Doesn't it look great?

This is ciabatta bread. It is quite tasty. I added a little too much flour...I'll remember that for next time... For this type of bread you make a starter, which is basically yeast water an some flour. You leave it to bubble for 12 hours or overnight. Then you add the rest of the ingredients and let it rise.

I can't remember the name of this bread...but it was pretty good. I modified the recipe a little. It called for some fresh herbs, which looked like spinach leaves, that I did not had. I did, however, have some leftover frozen spinach so I added that, plus the dried herbs. It also called for gorgonzola cheese. That cheese not only looks gross, but it reminded me of feta cheese, which IS gross, so I opted to just use more mozzarella than the recipe called for. It ended up being pretty good.

This is a cold picture of the insides, i forgot to get one when it was hot. Do you see all that wonderful cheesiness??? : )

So yeah, that's what I've been up to. Well, besides school and work, of course... : ) ttfn!

We've been making bread, too. But we cheat and let the breadmaker do all the work.
