Bread Making...Again

I've been very good these past 9 months and have lost enough weight that I recently enjoyed buying some new clothes for the new, slimmer me. I'm sticking to my guns, diet-wise (although the extreme cold is messing with my walks).

But it's winter, and I love bread, so I'm tiptoeing back into baking bread (maybe). As long as I limit my intake, all should be well.

Here's the recipe I want to try next. I like his delivery, his methods and the sheer simplicity of the recipe. He also has more recipes on his YouTube channel as well as a book I just purchased (available in print and ebook versions). (There are other books by him, but I haven't tried them yet).

I also want to try the recipe on this page, part of the Alexandra Cooks website. The bread looks great and easy, and I covet those Pyrex bowls. Not that I'll be buying new bowls. I have my own and they're very practical and serviceable, but I do love clear ones, especially these with the pretty design.

So what fun new hobby (or fun old hobby) have you been trying lately?

  1. I've been trying to keep my house clean and tidy, LOL. So far so good, though!
    (I know, I know, it isn't really classified as a hobby. Oh well. It's not like it's something I enjoy doing either, but since I don't do it full-time - nor really part-time either - we'll go with it being MY hobby, LOL!)
    I too am looking forward to some new recipes. Just found one for chicken pizza I want to try. Looks pretty easy (what with a store-bought pizza crust being allowed).

  2. Oh, I definitely think house cleaning qualifies as a hobby. :-D Let me know how the pizza recipe works out. I love recipes that are time savers (such as using a store-bought pizza crust)!
