At least once a week, its bread making time. During the winter, with the fire in full use, the floor around the firebox is always toasty warm. A good place to let the dough relax and rise.
With the power back on, its time to replenish the cookie cupboard. 🙂 I had spied this Brown Sugar Cookie recipe in the Company’s Coming Cookies recipe book a few days earlier. This afternoon after lunch, with the oven still warm from lunch, I took a crack at making these treats.
Found a recipe online for pizza hut pan pizza dough. Followed the recipe exactly but the dough came out really tough. Baked it anyway and the pizza were ok. With a tweak of the recipe I’m sure it will be really good.
Spent Saturday morning doing some bread baking. Made our 4 loaves of bread for the week, and also made 8 pizza shells and a dozen sub buns. On top of that we made some pita wraps, also called flour tortillas or bannock. Super easy to make. The hardest part is rolling them out flat. So we made a video where the first half simply shows me rolling them. The trick is to keep dusting the shell, and flipping and moving it while making it thinner.
We don’t get to the city often (Halifax) and its about the only place we know that has decent donairs. So after a bit of searching we found this recipe online. Trying it out this morning. Super simple to make.
Today we made up a new cookie recipe, we call them Peanut Butter Chocolate Pockets. A well balanced flavour and a stable cookie dough. The little video we made shows the folding technique and end results.
Made some of these pita shells for supper after seeing a commercial for A&W’s Chicken Bacon Wrap Sandwich. Never made the shells before. Super simple recipe and they bake on the stove top in a frying pan 60 sec one side, 30 sec on the other. The shells with the darker spots had the best flavor so I’ll be sure to darken them some more next time I make them.
With our homemade pie crust, 6 apples and a caramel sauce drizzled over top… its difficult to wait for the oven to do its part 🙂
Preparing supper tonight. It was difficult to cut through the first potato. Literally had to crack open the potato to see why. A small finishing nail embedded in the potato. Purchased from Altantic Superstore in Antigonish Nova Scotia some time either late April or early May. Trying to narrow down the time frame.
