Newbie's Log: Day 65

Day 65 on this delicious journey, giddy just brushing on egg wash... the obsession continues. Each time I bake, I get a bit more confident. This time-temperature thing is making more sense. It's still magical when the dough changes consistency. It's no longer frustrating when the dough fights back, cuz I'll send it to "time out." I'm thankful for my children for helping me put my disfigured breads out of their misery...

The most interesting thing I've made thus far, would have to be this: Melon Bread, essentially butter rolls wrapped in sugar cookies. Very dangerous.


Laminated dough, a close second
