Sunsets and slightly burnt basil

September 15, 2008

I had a quiet but really nice weekend. Yesterday night, a bunch of friends and I went out to a restaurant called Tiny Thai for dinner to celebrate my birthday (which was today – well, oops, now technically yesterday). This morning, I declared it was “Baking Challah Day” and brought some freshly baked and oven-warm challah to the lab. There are no pictures, but I’ll write a post about challah… soon… but it was just the way I like it, pulled apart with my hands, with the loaf’s inside being pillowy soft and the bottom with a slightly crisp crust. Isn’t that the best way to enjoy bread? ^_^

Hearty spinach and feta cheese bread

Sorry, I know it’s been a very long while since I last posted. Things were frenetic in the lab and I’m taking the time these days to do a bit of catching up.

Now, on to the bread: it’s packed with dense, spinach flavour and makes a great, hearty tomato and mayo sandwich, or pairs nicely with carrot soup.

Spinach and feta cheese bread with carrot soup = dinner!

Herb and cheese scones

June 6, 2008

These scones are dedicated to my friend, who doesn’t didn’t like scones.

R: I don’t like scones.

Me: What do you mean? How could you not like scones?

R: Well…

Me: Okay. I will bake scones for you to try and if you still don’t like them after that, I won’t bug you anymore.

At R’s request, I made savoury scones with herbs and sharp [Vermont!] cheddar cheese. This is a modified version of a basic scone recipe that I use for sweet scones (which I personally like more, but I’ll post about those another time).

R’s verdict?

Muchas gracias, muuuuy rico!
