Did gingerbread cookies yesterday and today will be something chocolate and yummy. I need to take something to a ball meeting so I thought I'd sweeten them all up!

I'm baking artisian bread ala Artisian Bread in Five Minutes a Day. The recipe I'm using is a variation I found at recipezaar:The Master Recipe:Boule-Artisian Bread. This recipe rocks!

Then I plan to make Banana Nut Bread. I have two recipes I want to try, one adds blackberry jam to the batter, which sounds interesting.

Diabetic Chocolate Cherry Brownies for my Dad. I know that probably sounds like an oxymoron, but that is what the recipe is called! He keeps asking if I need help so I think that is a hint he wants me to get started on them LOL!

I just baked my favorite Chinese restaurant dish for the first time: Whole Chicken Stuffed with Sticky Rice. I had to debone the bird intact, then stuff it with sticky rice mixed with good things like bits of dried mushrooms, dried shrimps, and chinese sausages. I couldn't wait for the moment of truth -- but when I finally unwrapped the cooked chicken from the foil, I was crest-fallen: The chicken had split wide open at the tummy area. I had put too much stuffing and the rice had expanded and my chicken kinda 'exploded'. All the wonderful juices had oozed out of the cavity instead of combining with the rice to produce moistness and great flavour. It was still good to eat though. But it could have been much better.

Now I know what not to do next time!

The diabetic brownies turned out just okay, I was surprised there was so much baking POWDER in them so they were cakey and dry. Next time I will cut it a bit and also lessen the baking time. But Dad is happy and that is all that counts.

Today is a test run on a gingerbread cake for a an event coming up. It will be carved into a gingerbread house, iced with chocolate frosting and decorated with gingerbread cookie roof, etc.

I am also hoping to make a batch of cookies, not sure what kind.
