Souffle

I'm going to try my hand at a Chive Cheddar souffle today. It's my birthday and I treated myself to a whole Dungeness crab from the farmer's market yesterday. Gonna have that, the souffle and a Caprese salad made with the fresh basil also from the market. My roommate, who doesn't cook, said "You don't want to have to cook on your birthday, do you?". Of course I told her that I love to cook and will be pleased as punch if my souffle turns out. People who don't cook just don't get what a pleasure it is, do they??

Yesterday - polka dot cheesecake bars. Today - the first tiers of a wedding cake, more cheesecake bars and some meringue kisses.

today I experimented with my white bread recipe which always comes out great. I made a sour starter about six days ago and used it in the process. The starter was just a cup of flour, a cup of warm water and 1/4 tsp of yeast. I mixed it up in a quart pyrex measure and let it sit uncovered on the counter, just stirring it everyday. Came out beautiful; mild but distinct sourdough flavor, light texture and a tender crust, which was what I was looking for. I was tired of the heavy textured, thick crusted "artisian" style and didn't want the fairly heavy, chewy restaurant style either. I'll try it a few more times to make sure it wasn't a fluke, and then if anyone is interested I'll put up the recipe.
