Today is a cold, dreary looking day. I decided to stay home and do some cooking and use up some things in my pantry. I had some rye that I wanted to use and I also had some dry beans. I am making a white bean soup, but it isn't finished yet so there is no picture. I tried this Double Rye Bread recipe. I also made a small loaf of cinnamon swirl bread at my daughter's request for breakfast tomorrow. The cinnamon bread tastes good, and I would imagine the rye bread does too.
King Arthur flour has a great website with some fantastic recipes on it if you want to try something new. I have been very pleased with the ones I have tried. I also made some Pita bread to go with some hummus I made. I took a picture of the pitas right after they got out of the oven. Besides tasting great, I love to watch the pitas blow up like a balloon in the oven. They really rose well today. My daughter loves homemade bread and will be very excited to have it for a snack after school.
Cooking and creating something that tastes good is rewarding.
