Baked two large loaves of white loaf bread this morning. Yum, the house smelled so good.

Tomorrow I'll bake a couple of loaves of crusty baguette. I like to have at least one loaf in the house to serve with soup or to make melba toast for spreads.

Cherry pie. Normally, I'd pit fresh cherries but this is February..and the cherries aren't even a glint in the trees' eye yet. So, I used canned cherries. I tossed most of the juice, added the zest of a lemon, a bit of almond extract, sugar and corn starch. I put some ground almond into the dough, too.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Made some honey almond granola today. It was my first time making it, we'll be having it for breakfast tomorrow.

I have bananas waiting to be made into bread also, hopefully I'll get it made soon. Sleeping days, It just seems like there is no time for anything except sleeping and running DD in the evening.

I baked these yesterday (one of my favorites)

Chocolate Euphoria Cookies

12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips, divided
3 Tbsp butter
3/4 c. sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. bkg powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. milk
1-1/4 c. walnuts

Preheat oven to 350f.
Melt half the chocolate chips in double boiler until smooth (or use microwave). In separate bowl, beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. Sift together dry ingredients. Stir melted chocolate and milk into butter mixture. Mix in dry in gredients, then remaining chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake 8 minutes. Yield: 3 dozen
(recipe is easily doubled)

But I need more (the natives are restless) so today I'm making these:
Choc. Chip Cookie help, please

But my 15-year old has asked me to sub the chocolate chips for white chocolate chips and to add macadamias as well.

As planned, I made two baguettes. One will be used for tonight's dinner. The other will go live in the freezer. Love the smell of bread baking.
