I have to frigging fight with DB over who gets the 20 year old Twinkie for dinner down in the basement dungeon, and you're chowing on THIS?

Bitch.


If you're ever in the area stop by, I cook like this every weekend.

Plus it comes with cocktails and wine.


Since I started this thread, I'll also invite myself. I'm cool. It's fine.

I'm calling shenanigans. You should be fat like me. You can't make all the damn comfort food and stay some skinny guy, it's just not proper. I think you are either an alien, or the special masonic diet is different up north. (you all do use salted butter when making the gravy that goes on the children?)

Very cool thread. I love baking (a fairly new hobby).

Augustus, count me in for the feast, please.

I made this bread recipe yesterday, with great results!

My favorite rosemary bread recipe (makes 2 small, light loaves):

Today I'm about to make some cupcakes for friends at work. One of them has celiac, and I found this recipe for red velvet cupcakes that she'll be able to eat (it is unbelievably good).

White Breada

reply to: zosimov

Those recipes look tasty!

This is the recipe I use for "white bread" , and my Mom used, and my Gram, too. I butter all sides generously after baking; and, add an all yolk egg wash and sesame seeds before cooking.

I don't have any recipes of my own


But have found a number of great ones online!!

How about this one for homemade croissants?

(If you make these, don't make the mistake I made and use cheap butter. High fat content, organic or European butter is a must for this. I had to make two batches because it was for my dad on Father's Day, and they take 6-8 hours each! I was up until 3am finishing them)

I leave croissants to the pros! Laminated dough is tough!

That recipe looks so good with the milk and butter. Thank you for sharing!!

ETA: Ha, you're not kidding. That dough was tough! Funny, the first time I tried worked out so well that I didn't know how hard it could be. There is something to beginner's luck, I think.

Oh my gosh, I'd saved this very video to make one day! I even went out and bought a spray bottle to use, but never did try.
I am glad to hear your endorsement on this one. (I really loved his narration-- he sounds really lovely to me :-D.)

Now I really must try it out.

Speaking of homemade pasta, here's a video that was super satisfying to watch:


(You'll have to ask Augustus about which types of flour to use for which dishes, and the ratios. The 00 flour in the vid is probably not the best to use and he could tell you why :-D . He suggested AP for this kind of pasta, and it worked like a charm.)

oo flour in italy is highly refined in which the bran, germ have been removed and kernal is ground to the texture of talcum powder. The gluten content varies in italian oo flour and each variation of flour has a specific use.

US oo flour is high in protein and builds great gluten strands. It’s good for breads or pasta but not most gnocchi.

US ap flour is not as fine as italian oo flour but has similar gluten qualities. It is made from a combo of hard and soft wheat. Great for making gnocchi/orecchiette

Thanks for the great info!
I'm looking forward to checking out the bread link.
I think the problem I had when I first tried the 00 was with low fat US eggs which did not do well with the ratio given in the video. European, organic, or the better eggs here would have worked I heard.

As it was, I labored over that dough the first time for so long, and it was so much work, that I wouldn't have tried again if not for talking to Augustus about it. The AP seemed to work better with the eggs I usually buy. I'd actually really like to try again with the 00. Tonight might be the night, especially seeing that I have all the right ingredients.

I've never made yeast bread (only pizza dough), but have several recipes I have been wanting to try. I think I did make some focaccia one time, but it's been so long I can't recall.

The rosemary bread looks delicious, and I love rosemary. I also love croissants, so that would be cool to try.

I don't have a bread mixer or anything, so I'd have to mix it all by hand. Maybe one day I'll get around to it, lol.

I don't have a bread mixer, or a stand mixer, but kind of enjoy the kneading/beating the crap out of dough
I like doing stuff by hand I think.

The rosemary bread is especially easy to make by hand.

Hah! That's my trick, unsalted butter. The only thing I uh, salt is the guests.
