Yes, it is too darn hot here to bake, but I did it anyway. My DH (aka Cookie Man) was out of cookies, which takes some of the sparkle out of his life. And a dear friend has had a death in the family, so needs some comfort. Made chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips and toasted walnuts. They are good, but need some special handling here. I let them cool on a rack, but if I leave them too long, they begin to absorb the humidity and turn back into globs of cookie dough. So I cook them a little crisp, then pack them away airtight as quickly as I can.

Pumpernickel color agent come out very well, so I gave in to temptation and have a new batch of dark rye working. Just starting it's first rise. We'll see how it comes out. Should be ready when #1 Judge (DW) gets home from work. Anxious to see how many "thumbs up" I get.

I have a pizza base left from last Saturday's demo, so tonight I'll roast off some veggies, smear the base with pesto, top with the roasted veggies and fresh mozzarella.
too easy, and yummy in the tummy.

I'm also thinking about Coconut Pie for breaking the fast on Thursday, so if I can get one made before the debate, I might just do that, too.

Made 2 loaves of NYT whole wheat (25% whole wheat flour) in my newly acquired Thrift Store bakers.



And 2 loaves of seeded Italian. I made one braided for a dinner we're hosting tonight. Should have made it shorter so it would have risen more, but it will be fine as it is. I just won't show them the regular loaf.
