On my 30 before 30 list I wrote that I wanted to get "good" at baking.
Well....I don't necessarily think this qualifies as being "good" at baking but seriously two of the best bread concoctions come out of my oven in the last few days.
Firstly, I made a recipe out of Peter Reinhart's artisan breads every day.
Yea, I'm the girl that checks cookbooks out of the library....so what?
Anyway this recipe for ciabatta bread is the BOMB! And pretty easy....the hardest part is thinking about it the night before you want the bread since it must chill in the fridge overnight.
If you are interested in making something other than sandwich loaf, check this book out....seriously....from your library :)
The OTHER thing I made were homemade hamburger buns!
RIGHT? Who does that?
A girl looking for an excuse to bake that's who.....but these were for real the best ever.
They really taste similar to the onion buns you get at the grocery only WAY better.
See all those yummy topping? Garlic salt, dried onions and flax seed!
I found the recipe at www.Chezus.com a neat blog I like to follow for fun cocktail ideas and stumbled across these!
I pinned it for later (of course) and the other day I had no idea what to have for dinner but we had some burgers. Homemade buns make burgers special-that's the truth.
I followed the recipe almost exactly, only altering the flour (I substituted 1 cup whole wheat) and my toppings.
