Orange Honey Pound Cake

Monday, April 14, 2014

I’m celebrating spring with cake! Spring in Texas is part beauty and part terror. The beauty comes from the wildflowers that spring to life, seemingly overnight, along the roads and in fields. I drove down to Houston last weekend and was dazzled by fields filled to bursting with vivid Bluebonnets, Indian Paint Brushes, and Buttercups. […]

Bread, bread and more bread …

It is hard to write unique and witty commentary about school this semester because each week it is pretty much the same thing.  Night 1 – Mix pre-ferments, make quick bread, prepare ingredients for next night final dough, clean up and go home. Night 2 – Mix final dough, ferment, mix and bake quick bread, […]

Well, I said I would take pictures of the pizza I made, but I didn't.  To be honest with you, I was so ready to eat when it was done I did not even give the camera one thought.  It was very tasty (like the last time) and it looked lovely.  You will have to […]

More Pizza, Sourdough Starter Update, and Weekend Baking

I will be making more pizza this weekend.  The first batch was so good, and my brother is coming over, I can't help myself.  I must make it again!  I think I will start the biga tonight, make the dough tomorrow night and stash it in the fridge for a good long ferment.  Slow ferment […]

Breads & Rolls – 1st full week

Lord am I tired.  Monday and Tuesday our class ran long by about 30 minutes.  This does not sound so bad until you consider class is from 7pm to 9:50pm and my drive home is 20 minutes.  I am a little exhausted. Night 1 -  We started with our 'sour' sponge for baguettes.  I say 'sour' because we […]

A Weekend Spent Baking

I tend to dive head first into projects that are of interest to me.  At the moment, and it should come as no surprise to anyone, my obsession is bread. Now, we are not talking about the homogeneous loafs of bland white sandwich bread that line the shelves at the super-mega mart.  What we are talking […]

Well, the pizza crust recipe from my text book ROCKED!!  Crispy and crunchy on the outside with a soft chewy inside with an irregular cell structure.  Perfect texture on the bottom of the crust too … crisp yet chewy.  This is my new pizza crust recipe.  Having to start the day before is well worth it!  […]

Pizza Dough

I am making pizza for dinner, and I started the dough yesterday. The crust starts with a biga that was allowed to ferment overnight in a cold oven.  (As it has been in the 30's here the last few days, the oven is warmer than the counter, and I know how cold inhibits yeast production)  This […]

When I made my first girlish attempt at higher education the semesters just dragged by.  I felt like three months was a lifetime, and the time between semesters was just a blink of your eye.  Now that I am older I find that all time, no matter what I am doing, goes by in the […]
