I know I shouldn't really doctor up a baking recipe and I'm certainly NOT a baker...but these have turned out good before so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Photos please?

Sure will. It'll be tomorrow morning, though. I still have half a bowl of cookie dough to portion out and bake....

I finally had a chance to turn the pie dough I made a couple of days ago into a small blueberry pie. I even had some leftover dough so I made some dough pinwheels, too. I'd forgotten how good they are.

Copycat Starbucks Bran Muffins
MEH, they were okay I guess.
Gotta find a recipe with better Bran flavor.

I made some pretzel crust focaccia, which came out very good, although it rose too much. See the pics below and compare.

The crumb is dense and moist. Given that, its oddly crumbly.

And here is the pic from the recipe. Please note that its nowhere near as puffed up as mine.

I'm guessing you let it rise too long before baking. The time given in the recipe is just a guideline. If it's risen enough before the time is up, go ahead and continue with the recipe.

There are several possible causes for crumbly bread. Check here and see if any of these seems to be what happened: https://www.thespruceeats.com/help-m...rumbly-4153594

with a bowl of Soup for dinner
Okey-dokey!!!

I baked a batch of cranberry muffins from a box mix, adding in lots of walnuts. I also made a from-scratch wheat bread. When we were back home at Christmas, I remembered to hunt down both cracked wheat and wheat flakes. Found them both at the Amish bulk food store. This loaf of wheat bread used the wheat flakes, and is it good. Half gone in just one day.
