I made them chock full of pecans, but I do wish I'd used more cinnammon. Wish I could make them look as pretty as the ones in the book photo.
I do like to used freshly ground cinnamon, crushing it in my electric coffee grinder, but which I bought just for the use of grinding spices. One of those helpful hints I learned from my favorite domestic diva, Martha Stewart.
Using the recipe from aforementioned book, you just cut off a chunk of dough and let it rise, then shape.
And here you see the wonderful book I used for this recipe and which I'd read about on other blogs,"Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois. I just had to get to give it a try. Everyone who raved about it is right, it does make baking a lot easier and fun.
This is just a shot of the sushi I made. I am hoping with practice I can become better at rolling them. I think it's not too bad for it being my first attempt at making sushi.
And then the picture I have been wanting to share of the cute journal I received from Missy over at SpringBean. Isn't it the cutest fabric ever?! I'm going to have to get in on buying some Japanese fabric for some projects. I can see the quality is really good, and it just doesn't get any cuter than that. Using it for gifts would be a really fine idea!
So there you have it. After this, I should be finding it much more easy to load my pictures. I'm hoping that translates to more posts. I think pictures tell most of the story anyway. What could be easier?
