I baked some pumpkin seeds this morning ;) and I am thinking tonight I'll make some pumpkin cupcakes. The decorations are very cute. I'll try and get the link for them later.

I've never heard of those rolls. Did you Google it?

I'll gladly bake bread for anyone who wants to cut my lawn.

Made some orange and chocolate bars DELISH. You roll out some refridgerated sugar cookie dough into a 9x12 pan (ungreased) and bake according to package directions (about 20 minutes). Spread orange marmalade onto the sheet of cookie while still warm. sprinkle with chopped nuts (I used almonds and walnuts) then drizzle, liberally, some melted chocolate onto the sheet of cookie. Let cool, if you have that kind of self control and cut into squares. The DH gobbled these up.

I don't particularly like anything with anise in it, so I'm not likely to try these rolls. Good luck with them!

A small (~1 1/2 lb) round loaf of sour rye: 1 cup rye sour, 10 oz altus, 1 1/4 cup high gluten, 1 1/4 cup first clear, 2 tsp yeast, 1 tsp diastatic malt, 1/2 tsp sugar and 6 to 8 oz potato water.

Rye was a little (5 oz) larger than anticipated: 1 lb 13 oz (.824 kg)

I have a kitchen aid!!! Finally!!! Several people gave us money for our wedding, so we treated ourselves!

Today I have made a batch of rolls, and some brioche.

Oh and not baking, but I carved my first pumpkin! He looks suitably menacing.

Joe

i am wondering if i can just leave it out. how much it costs will decide for me. i don't buy an ingredient that i am unlikely to use again. will let you know how it turns out.

Brought the last loaf of NYT (rye) out of the freezer, so I mixed up two loaves of plain NYT and one NYT Rye that I will bake tonight. Of the three different rye breads I have made, we like this one the best for both toast and sandwiches.
