Nanny Sarah, Bria Bag and First-Time Bread Baking

Tuesday, March 31

Listening to "She's So High," Tal Bachman (I'm sometimes a 90s-music-obsessed blogger...)

Finished Knitting Project:
Here's Bria's bag- finished by her Nanny Sarah!

I'll admit- not the best picture.
I'm still
being lazy about pulling
out my
Canon Rebel. Next time I
will, swear!

Cute little project. Took no time at all and- let's be honest- it's not the most amazing thing ever knitted. But she's five, so she sure thought it was amazing. Which made me feel good :)

And, finally!

Recipe Review:

StephChow's Bread { Whole Wheat Yeastless Focaccia }

This recipe is so fun, so quick and so easy. Perfect if you- like I was- are a first-time bread maker. HINT: To make the bread, you use a 12 oz. dark beer!! Who doesn't like a recipe that replaces hard, elbow-work yeast baking and kneading (isn't that what bread making is usually about?) with BEER?!

I didn't screw the recipe up-- and that's saying something
. It's easy- you can do it!

Till next time (When I'm hoping to make bbq-- or, if you're southern, pulled pork!-- for the first time! Great family crock pot recipe!),

I can tell this is going to be educational :)

We have a bread-making machine thingee... I should try the beer recipe! Though I don't like beer...

Kids are so cute, as long as they aren't your own. And excellent job with that little purse, it's adorable.

That purse is so cute. Excellent work with the bread. I love bread making, and have a great yeast focaccia recipe that is one of my go-to easy dinner options, but whole-wheat with beer, I gotta give that a try!
