If ever I had an aspiration, it would be to bake better bread. I have made a few loaves that turned out alright, but nothing like what my sister can pull off. Her bread is amazing. I have given up making bread a few times only to try again when I get the urge to eat a really good loaf of bread.
And now that time has come again. Macrina Bakery (if you haven’t eaten there yet, drop everything and eat there) has a second cookbook out, More from Macrina. I am devouring it. I’ve even successfully made a few things from it. Hooray!
The best part – for me – is that each chapter starts with a ‘master recipe’ and every subsequent recipe uses that one as the base. That means I only have to really get one recipe right and I have several things I can make from it. Success!
Christmas morning we’re eating Sugar Buns. (And I may start calling my kids that too.)
