Ok so I have been fearful of yeast.  I don’t know why.  It is alive!  It is fickle!  Seems like it takes forever!  But I have decided to break out of my fear.  First I made these awesome soft pretzels, next I made these incredible bread sticks, then cinnamon rolls.   Mmmmm.  Why did I wait so long?  I did do some research before opening the package.    I love the science of food so I look to Alton Brown.  I got his book from the library “I’m just here for more food” the baking edition.  I really learned a lot about flour and yeast.  Still working on the best recipes for these, but a great start.  We plan on having pretzels for Super Bowl appetizers, yum yum.

Baking…the beginning

So I have decided to encourage my passion for baking.  In addition I need to find someone to share them with.  See I love to bake and also eat what I bake.  So my mission is to get good at baking and just start giving care packages to people I know.  I started with this “best ever chocolate chip cookie” recipe from Alton Brown.  Tastes great even though I forgot an egg!  So yummy.  They are a little buttery crisp and moist and chewy.  I am sure if  I had the extra egg, they would have been even softer and chewier.  Oh well, this batch is for us.  I froze the dough so we can just have  cookies in a blink of an eye (or 15min).
