Just about to go and make a lemon drizzle cake for the staff at the stables. No special occasion, just an occasional treat to say "Thank you".

My brioche results.


The rolls, they were so good we ate the first few of them without icing.

It's been so hot and humid here I've shied away from turning the oven on, but today's a bit more agreeable so I think I'm going to make a batch of Cornmeal Pan Rolls. We're going to finish up a yummy Puerto Rican pork shoulder tonight and these rolls would be great with it. Actually, they're great...period. The first time I made them, Glenn ate 3 of them right from the oven while they were still warm. Omigosh, they're sooooo good!

I actually decided to look up a guide on how to knead. Turns out, I've been doing it wrong the whole time, so I'm attempting to make some wholemeal bread (boule or loaf? I have yet to decide!) to practice the new technique.

I had some bananas that were getting overripe, so I made a batch of banana muffins yesterday, using Penzeys Pie Spice instead of the nutmeg called for in the recipe. I love that stuff It has all the warm spices (including three different kinds of cinnamon) plus vanilla sugar and anise seed. So good. I had a little too much batter for twelve muffins, so I made a little cake with the rest. Dipped them in melted butter and topped with pie-spice sugar

I miscalculated how much softened butter I would need - I was 2 tbsp. short and all the rest was in the fridge. So I remembered a tip I had read about grating it to soften it quickly. Worked like a charm! I also was 1/2 cup short of the amount of plain yogurt I needed, so I substituted whipped cream cheese that I softened on low power in the microwave. They came out delicious!

Glenn has requested homemade hamburgers on the grill and Cajun potato salad for his Father's Day meal.

As slowly as I've been moving these days, I think I'd better make the burger buns today. I don't have much to do today and it's too hot and humid to "play" outside until pool time later in the afternoon. Think I'll make some good smells in the house this morning.

Finally got the berry-cherry crisp baked. Half blueberries, half cherries, and all good. It looks like "the mice" got to it, though.
