I have found a few tricks while catering. With the wontons, I just make them ahead, let them cool on paper towel covered cooling rack (so the oil will be soaked up and the air can get around them. Then I pack them in air tight containers for transport. Just put them on baking sheets and heat them for a few minutes in a 350 oven (not convection though) and they come out as crispy as they did out of the fryer, without the grease. You could make them ahead and put them in the fridge, I guess, but I always make them the day of.

Hope that helps, Dave.

I did bake today

Just took two New York Times Bread Loaves out of oven. They are cooling. My husband suggested I bake two each time instead of one.

Great idea. Going through all the same motions...just do it twice. GREAT.

As I mentioned earlier I bake my bread in Ceramic Crock Pot liners. I have one oblong crock pot and one round. I prefer the oblong. Makes a longer
loaf. Either shape....I find the recipe the BEST. Aria

DW just informed me that SHE is taking over the oven to bake Christmas cookies. Just because I've baked them for the last six years, all of a sudden she thinks it's her turn. I can't understand what's gotten into her..............

Dave, have you ever thought of baking cookies together?

We are both very strong minded people and get in each other's way at every turn. We actually did try it once - disaster! Love is "staying out of each other's way in the kitchen". Better yet, staying out of the kitchen...............

Mom and I are trying to finish up the holiday baking. Today, we made chocolate fudge with walnuts, fudge cups (little chocolate tartlets with a fudge filling), and salted nut bars (mixed nuts and butterscotch on top of a shortbread crust). It has been fun, but it is nice to see the light at the end of the baking tunnel.

Working on a batch of sweet potato bread. I may do something else (cookies or another bread) depending on my energy level later on.
