Just took a tray of cornmeal pan rolls out of the oven and because Glenn and I are such responsible people, we each had to sample some while they were still warm. Slathered with real butter, of course.

Yep, they are good!

Cheryl, your banana break looks scrumptious! Now I have to buy too many bananas when I shop so I can let some age.

beth, thanks for your endorsement too. I'm a purist when it comes to banana bread, adding in only chopped walnuts. However, chocolate lover that I am, I'll have to try your way. My dear SIL loves to doctor up her banana breads by sometimes adding blueberries or dried cranberries. Meh, not my thing. Himself doesn't mind when she brings some to share with us though, since he ends up with the lion's share. This lioness has just one small slice.

And now you guys started my wheels turning. A bread with an Elvis riff on it: banana nut bread with chopped peanuts and crisped bacon? Not sure I'm brave enough to try that - where is pacanis and his bacon express when you need him. I bet he'd give it a whirl.

Today the young lads and I made gobi masala and poori. We also used the poori dough to make another type of flat bread. Next time we get together, we are making croissants. I'm exhausted.

Did a little basement puttering yesterday and ran across an "oops". When Himself was working, I would buy a couple of Pillsbury quick bread mixes every time they were on sale so I could bake muffins for his breakfast. (For every one packed into his lunch bag, I got to eat one at home. ) Well, while moving stuff around a long while ago I put a bunch of them aside. Way aside. As in, one of the two mixes I baked today had a "Best By" date in 2011. Sealed, boxed off the floor, and in a cool and relatively dry basement, I wasn't afraid of spoilage. However, I figured it wouldn't hurt to add just a touch of extra, fresh baking powder. Made a loaf of cranberry and a loaf of banana, I added walnuts to each, and also had half a banana that was left from a fruit salad I made on Monday, so that was chopped and added to the banana bread. I froze a generous half of each loaf for some other days down the road.

I have a feeling I'll be baking up quite of few of these mixes in the weeks to come...

I'm not much of a baker, but it sounds like that would work, especially since you added a little more baking powder....? Your additions sound really good, let us know how they turned out!

I have a batch of whole wheat savoury bagels rising. To make them savoury--onion, garlic, marjoram, black pepper, a bit of cayenne pepper, parm. cheese.

I need to get off my duff and out into the kitchen. It has been quite a while since I got my hands into a mess of flour. I need to make up some bread dough and break it down into the size for just a couple of sandwich rolls each. Then freeze the rest in separate zippy bags.

I don't know about anyone else, but I love to knead dough. I find it very relaxing. And I have the perfect stool to sit on while I am doing it.

Today I baked a yellow cake recipe. It's the first yellow cake recipe test in my search for a great yellow cake.

It made two layers. I froze one and topped the other with chocolate ganache type frosting. Taste testing will follow this evening.
