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.

Joe, I am so jealous. I have tried a few times and I can't get my NYT Bread to rise.

the "snicker doodle" pie i made yesterday, is not a keeper.

very confusing recipe , had to read it four times. not really much flavor like a snicker doodle cookie. very very sweet, took brown sugar, powdered sugar and regular sugar.

the bread however was wonderful as always.

Butterrmilk, potato, honey bread. Yum, yum and yum. Perfect day for baking, too. But we're really going to get it Sunday night and Monday. The santa Anas are upon us and it's wildfire season once again. For those who aren't familiar with the term, Santa Anas are "off shore" winds; strong, hot ones, that blow from the east to the west, out of the high desert. With them, even the smallest spark can ignite the wildfires, especially with all the trees, bushes and grasses being bone dry. Last year was horrible; entire mountains on fire. We had to evacuate but luckily we not burned out.

so true dave, makes me worry just to think about it. i was told to leave last year by reverse 911. my son is five min. from me. he could see hills where fire was and stayed put. so i did also. lots of smoke and ash but no fire here. my friend in park left with all her six cats. thomas and i just hunkered down. lots of other people left also but trickled back in next morning.

it is a scary business.

The only reason I can think of that your NYT does not rise is your yeast. Are you using 1/4 t of INSTANT YEAST? If you're using Active Dry Yeast, the stuff in the little foil packages, go get Instant Yeast and give it a shot again.

I am using Instant Yeast. It has worked using other recipes??????? I just make a loaf of French bread the other day using the same yeast. I have a small bag.

No sweets in the house, so I made a batch of strawberry/nut/vanilla chip cake mix cookies. The house smells sooo good. Got about 4 dozen out of this recipe, which will last me for a good long while.
