Thanks for bringing it to mind, msmofet. Will pick up some buttermilk on my morning walk and make cornbread later.

I'm making a Black Forest trifle for a neighbor's potluck later. I just took the dark chocolate cake out of the oven and will finish it when it cools down.

I'm baking 2 loaves of potato rye, to start the year. I'll be having a sandwich with some of the leftover ham. I got rid of the last of my cookies today, to my neighbor, who had been away, and put all of those tins away until next season!

In this recipe I added a tsp of ajwain seed (a.k.a. carom seed and bishop's weed), in addition to 1 1/2 tb of caraway. One loaf I made a while back with only ajwain, and I wasn't crazy about it, but I thought that maybe it would be better with the caraway, like when I use smaller amounts of nigella. I'll see how it turns out.

Those look very nice. Could you share your recipe? I am a bread freak.
I make French bread every Saturday's and Sunday's, and friends call me around 9am each days, and ask if I have any to give away. Some are even paying for it. It's hard to say no, when they come every weekend to pick up some. Making French bread is a lot of fun and very cheap, then when you eat it fresh with butter, it's incomparable.

I made some sourdough bread today...actually, over the last 3 days! I had some old firm starter in the fridge, that I hadn't used for at least 6 months, but unlike liquid starters, which I have never been able to refresh as well, this was back to normal after just 2 "refreshments". The aroma from the bread is incredible, as always.

Here is the bread, before and after:

Thanks Ross.

I started like many people making sourdough bread, but I gave up quickly realizing it was not that simple to make and was not really what we eat in France. We usually eat a simple white bread.
Then I worked on poolish and starters. But I was not making enough bread to justify a starter. I was left with just the poolish.

I used poolish for a long time, until I got tired of the 2 days recipe, and also realized that I wasn't gaining that much more flavor compare to a one day recipe.

Now I make a 3 hour bread that is easier to make, has a good structure, a crusty crust, a very light and chewy dough with decent air pockets and taste like home.

I attempted to bake macarons. Keyword is attempted since I'm not so much of a baker unfortunately. Most of them turned out really flat, some were ok and some were slightly burnt.

I decided that our Puppies have been ignored at these events,
so I made 5 different flavored "cookies" in different shapes and sizes.
That 1st photo are the Bacon Bites for small doggos.
I set up my table a little differently this time around, red & yellow, dog bowls to present the wares and a mascot (stuffed police dog from NYPD).
I made almost 1000 biscuits, sold about half, and took the other half over to the local Humane Society to share with the puppies without for-ever homes.
