Hello everyone, I'm Laurie. I'm from the USA but I'm currently living with my husband and in-laws in Iraq. My sister-in-law makes flat bread every day (khubiz?) so I'll have to try to get pictures of that and a desciption for everyone. She's been baking in the morning lately and I tend to sleep in (they let me), so getting pics may take a few tries.
MY baking record is mostly cake, cookies, pancakes, and muffins. I tried making bread twice. the first time I ended up with 4 or 6 (this was 3 or 4 years ago...) small round loves with hard crust and they were extra chewy. Tasty with butter though. Second try about a year and a half ago, I ended up with charcoal baugettes. I they burnt way before they were supposed to be done and I couldn't smell the smoke from the room I was in. The room-mate upstairs came down and told me.
Is there a mistake section I can show my well documented "albino sugar cookies"?
Also, we don't have any scales or mesuring cups here, any suggestions in case I get brave enough to try making the english muffins before my husband and I can move to the US?
