Yesterday I made 2 pans of chocolate cake from my new high altitude baking cookbook, "Pie in the sky". This morning I fought my icing and think I won. I never was one to make pretty cakes, but it sure does taste great!

Taste is what counts, beth, so I would call it a success. At least the cake is straight. My one and only attempt at a from-scratch cake looked like it had been in an earthquake.

Apple pie because the kid is outside rolling in snow and I thought she needed something warm

Because of my lack of cake decorating skills, taste trumps pretty any day...

Blueberry pie

After Kayelle made that delicious Quiche Lorraine for dinner, I noticed that there there was another piecrust left over. I was thinking about what to do with it, when I remembered that I had a pound of blueberries in my freezer.
Using my mathematical skills, the equation piecrust + blueberries = blueberry pie! I googled recipes and came up with one from Taste of Home:
https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/...-blueberry-pie

I followed the recipe, just like every engineer would, and the result is posted below. It was my first ever pie!

Nice looking pie from a Pi-guy, Souschef.

I used some of my no-knead bread dough to make this French bread called fougasse. It's meant to be shared - people pull off pieces and every piece has a crusty outside and soft inside. Can't wait to see the crumb. I'm taking it to my book club meeting tonight.

Made 3 large loaves of potica today. I usually make it during the holidays but other things took precedence. My grandmother used to make it all in one piece but Arthur has caused me to tailor it to my abilities.

Came out as perfect as I could've wanted. One to eat, two to put in the freezer. Yum, yum, yummers!
