Would be great to post this in the Preserves forum, so it doesn't get lost.

Yesterday I baked a batch of Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons - sis requested some because she is in rehab (and not eating well, I assume!), so I took her some (ate a couple myself, too!). This is one of my favorites, as well as her's - not only the chocolate chips, but a layer of chocolate is spread on the bottoms of the macaroons, then they are cooled on waxed paper, and peeled off, when totally cooled. As with brownies, I only make these for somebody else, as I have no willpower resisting them!

Hasn't anyone been having dessert lately?

I found my new favorite Brownie Recipe:

I did two additions:

1/2 C. chopped Macadamia Nuts

I went out this afternoon and got a pint of
really good Vanilla Ice Cream for round two

No Knead White Bread
I haven't made this is a LONG time
and saw a blast from KAF that this was
their most requested recipe (or something of the sort)
for 2018.

Made a half recipe, enough for 2 small-ish loaves,
this one is straight up, no embellishments, 4 four
days sitting in the `fridge, fermenting

Tomorrow I'll bake off the second loaf with an
add-in of Roasted Garlic Cloves, now THAT
should be really good.

We have been on sorta of a diet I guess you'd
say, low carb-fat-sugar, no alcohol
getting bikini season ready
No really!

I made some bread today - good day for baking, since it was a cold, dreary day. It was a Potato Rye, with some ground golden flax seeds in it, and I made it with some whey I had from making some Greek yogurt, so that gave it some tang. Not a two or three day bread - just a simple two rise bread, with almost all whole grain (the last cup of flour added to the bowl while "kneading" is bread flour, just so it doesn't get too dry). I also added a tb of nigella seeds, along with all those 2 tb of caraway seeds, so it's loaded with seeds! I got two 32 oz and one 26 oz loaf from this dough. One is going to a friend, and one in the freezer (this I'll do, even when trying to empty the freezer, as it won't stay in there long).

Dough, finished kneading:

Dough back in bowl, ready to rise:

Dough, finished first rise:

Loaves, ready for second rise:

Loaves ready for baking:

Loaves cooling:

Funny thing about this - as usual, the smell permeated the entire house, and I smell it up here in my computer room, but it smells like I baked something like a sweet bread or cake, not a rye bread! Maybe wishful thinking?

Saw a recipe yesterday for 90 Minute Man Bread and gave it a try this morning. Wow, wow, wow! Easy peasy and, of course, I streamlined it.


Used the ingredients just as called for but, instead of using my KitchenAid with dough hook, I put everything into the bread machine and set it to DOUGH. Only let it rise for 30 minutes in the machine as the recipe directed. Shaped it into a ball, pretty large one as it turned out.


Then before putting it on a piece of parchment and putting it into the microwave for its final rise, I put a cereal bowl of water and heated it on HIGH for 4 minutes, which turned the "proofing" environment into a warm and moist place.


Followed the recipe the rest of the way, placing the risen loaf onto a pizza stone and baked it. Beautiful!


Gonna make another one tomorrow because this one isn't going to last long.

How did you do the microwave proofing (time, power level)?

I think she just brought a bowl of water to a boil, to create warmth and humidity, and then put the dough in to proof, with the oven off.

Oh ok. I usually put a steaming hot pan of water on the bottom rack of oven then place dough on top rack to proof/rise.

Both techniques work. If you use the microwave, though, you can preheat the oven for baking before the dough is finished rising.

As I mentioned, I put the bowl of water into the microwave to heat on HIGH for 4 minutes. I do not remove the bowl.


Doing this way, I can depend on at least an hour of proofing time.....that is, unless my husband opens it to reheat his lunch.
