So the bread obsession is rolling on. Some results are better then others. I am realizing that i will most likely need to invest in a good cookbook for the varieties that i want. So far i have one recipe that is a nah not again. It is a banana recipe from allrecipes.com, it was not terrible, just lacked flavor and my banana bread quick bread recipe is much better. I have one that has been made a few times and will stay in rotation i am sure. It is a rosemary bread recipe also from allrecipes.com. I have subbed slightly using part fresh rosemary from my garden and part already dried herbs.
I have tried 2 different oatmeal bread recipes and will most likely try both again as well any others in search of the one that is just right. I really want to play with some whole grain breads. i have some whole wheat flour and milled flax seeds in that effort. Now i just need to find a recipe that calls for them. It is challenging in this area to find whole wheat bread flour, so i hope that regular whole wheat flour will be ok.
My husband has mentioned an olive bread several times, so i will need to do one of those sometime soon as well. But i wonder how many jars of olives that will require. Looking forward to trying pizza dough one day as well.
Maybe this winter obsession will be one i develop some skill with. At least i might come up with some cute holiday gift ideas.
Still glad for any recipe suggestions.
