I just baked the 10 min banana bread and it is a great recipe for a quick bread that taste great. I added a 1/2 cup of chopped pecans to mine. Thank you for the recipe.

Finaly I found time to try my hand at the pizza dough again.  This time it was great and I turned it into a Calzone that my girlfriend makes at work.  The result was wonderful and very tasteful.  I added brown sugar to the recipe for pizza dough on this site.  I think next time I am going to try adding more sugar, because I like to have a sweet pizza dough.  Does anyone have any tips on making my dough sweeter?

Last night after I had made my first batch of pita's for dinner, I decided to make some pretzels since you don't really have to let them ferment. So I got all my stuff ready and went for it. I was very happy with the way my first set of pretzels came out. The recipe was very tastefull, but I will probably try adding a little more sugar next time to give them a sweeter flavor profile. Baking pretzels was a great way for my girlfriend and I to entertain our selves at the end of a stressfull day. Here is a picture of them.

My First Pretzels

I did it, I created my first baked product.  I think this may be the start of a very long friendship...Today I arived home from school, I attend Le Cordon Bleu of Atlanta, and decided to challenge this crazy thing called "baking" again.  I have tried to make bread about 3 times before now and have messed something up every time.  But this time was different, I did everything correct.  I made pita's, I know it was just pita's but for a person who has never baked a thing right in his life, except for that box cake I purchased at the super market, I was happy.  I will get a picture of them to post because they just look so tasty.  I just wan't to thank the people who created this site with wonderful instructions and pictures to go along.  Thank You for helping me achieve this goal, I'm going to continue to explore my baking skills so that I can have an advantage when I reach my baking and pastry class in a few weeks.   "Yesss!!!!" ahh...I'm so excited.
