Mixed up two batches of NYT bread last evening. Will pop them in the oven sometime this morning before church. Might try making bagles today if DW wants them. It's rainy today, so we might just veg out instead of working.

OMG, Karen, that sounds absolutely FANTASTIC!!!

I'll be right down! What can I bring you from Boston?

I'm baking a loaf of Quick Cheese Bread from the Cook's Illustrated site this morning. I'm sure this recipe is copyrighted, so I won't post the recipe. Not sure if it's one of their free recipes, or if you have to be a web member to get it. The link wouldn't post, so I guess you would have to go to cooksillustrated dot com and search for "Quick Cheese Bread." I'll let you know if it's worth it.
I've never made it before, but it looks beautiful in the oven...we'll see.

Also taking advantage of the hot oven by making our dinner - an egg, cheese and zucchini bake that will be good with some fresh fruit for our Sunday supper. Have to get baking done before noon this time of year - getting HOT and humid.

Qsis, the tortillas were really good and so easy to make. And they're great quartered and fried for dipping.

Decided I wanted bagels for breakfast/brunch. In about 2 minutes we'll have hot bagels out of the oven. Yum!

Katie, I have never made bagels, and I've been wanting to...guess I'll have to get brave and give it a try. But it's your birthday - you shouldn't have to bake. Of course, if you're like me, you probably WANT to bake.

After I took that cheese bread out of the oven and tasted it, I decided I had to share it with you all. I rewrote the recipe and since I also changed it a bit, I'm hoping this will pass muster:

Quick Two-cheese Bread

Preheat your oven to 350F.

First, grate 3 ounces of Parmesan cheese (about 1 cup). Spray your 9 X 5 loaf pan with cooking spray and scatter half of the cheese on the bottom.

Next, combine dry ingredients and whisk them together:

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 TBS baking powder
tsp cayenne pepper
tsp coarsely ground black pepper

Gently fold in one cup of sharp cheddar cheese, cut into inch dice. Make sure all the pieces of cheese are coated with flour.

Now, for your wet ingredients:

Lightly whisk one egg. Add to 1 and cups whole milk, cup sour cream and 3 TBS melted butter. Whisk it all together.

Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Don’t over mix.

Pour batter into pan (it is thick) and sprinkle the remaining cup Parmesan over the top.

Bake for 45-50 minutes.

Turn out of pan after cooling for 5 minutes and wait about 45 minutes to slice it. This would be good with dry onion, bacon, sun dried tomatoes, lots of other goodies added. I'll have to begin experimenting!

NYTimes Dough is almost ready to put in oven.
Also, I made a lemon buttermilk pound cake which we'll have with strawberries.
