Laurie: It is "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois. Do like I do - I always check it out at the library to see if it's worth spending the money. It's worth the money.
I thought you were going to slow down. The ones for the kids I can understand. I'm not nagging, am I?

I baked DH some Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk cookies today for his lunches. I used a mix. They are making some pretty good ones now and it beats having to combine all the flours and other ingredients. I still do most of his baking by hand, but it is nice to know I can get a good standby!

I hope to get the cake made for the birthday cake I am doing for a 12 year old this week. I tried my hand at my first fondant animal, a huskie dog today. Not bad, but don't think I am ready to show pictures yet!

Note to Dave: You are not nagging and I am having loads of fun on this one!

That's the one I am looking at. I get a free book next month so I think that might be my choice! Thanks, Dave.

It was a busy baking day. I baked 4 loaves of banana bread. One big one and three little ones. I prepped 3 apple crisps and they are now in the freezer. I did a batch of applesauce too. I'm gathering myself and I'm going to go do a bunch of apple pies if I can find my tin foil pie plates.

Can you tell I have a few apples to use up? LOL!

Our weather is about the same as yours, Alix. I baked the cake part of the cake I am doing for my best friend's son's 12th birthday. I am having fun with this one!
