I'm staying off sugar for sometime, at least till we finish the batch of breakfast cookies. Maybe I'll bake bread..

Just finished a 3-day bread-baking marathon. Today's accomplishment was a nice big batch of English muffins. Now we're up to our all-American elbows with all kinds of bread, so I probably won't have to make more for a couple of weeks. Although, I'm seriously considering making some potato dinner rolls this weekend. I'll see.

I haven't made English Muffins in years. Homemade ones are SO good! I remember collecting tunafish cans to use for the molds. What do you use, Katie?

I make English muffins about every 6 weeks. And, you're right, homemade ones are sooooo good.

I used to use tuna cans, June, but Buck gave me a set of English muffin rings for my birthday many years ago. I sent my tuna cans to my daughter so she could make English muffins.

It takes a while to accumulate enough tuna cans for a batch of muffins. It's getting even harder now that tuna cans don't open on both ends. I've discovered that 8-ounce pineapple or water chestnut cans can be substituted for tuna cans. At least those cans can have both lids removed.

Today I tried my T&T Challah recipe using Bob's Red Mill's White Whole Wheat flour. The bread doesn't come out "white" at all... and altho the raw flour looked white, I couldn't see any difference in the dough or finished bread from regular whole wheat bread.

Funny.... it looked like Challah, and it smelled like Challah (all eggy) but it doesn't taste like Challah. It's still a good bread, but I won't be doing that again when I want Challah!

I made cookies yesterday for a woman who came to babysit the kids. Chocolate orange, always a hit.

I made a dessert yesterday for a BBQ I was going to ... and promptly left it behind!! So now I have a Turkish Delight Mouse tart for dessert. Tried to get my mum to come over to share but she doesn't want to, at least not before Easter and I don't think it will keep til then. Does mousse freeze??
