I combined a few recipes together for a sort of veggie and cheese cornbread casserole. It was a whole meal in a skillet, simple, filling and delicious. Basically just browned the veggies I had kicking around in a lot of butter, made a fairly dry cornbread batter with cheddar cheese folded in, then mixed the two together in the skillet and baked it off. Last night's dinner and lunch for at least one day this week.

I made four loaves of sandwich bread because my son came home from college! Bread fest!

trying out 'wacky' flavours for my sourdough loaves! (olives and lavender last week and sundried tomatoes, chives and mushroom soy sauce this week ) :)

Andrew - this is AWESOME! Thank you.

The WaPo recently put out a list of the best pizza in every state and broke it up into different styles. The one thing missing from any New England state was Greek pizza. It is less common here in CT than when I lived in MA and NH but there is at least one Greek style pizza in my town.

Thank you!

This being Rosh Hashanah I made round challahs. I over-proofed them a bit so the coils lost some of their distinctness but they were round and turban-like and I hope they made the people who received them has a little sweeter new year.

I made your oatmeal maple sourdough loaf for I think the third time. It's a real winner. We do steel cut oats, so the crumb gets this lovely nubby texture as well as the softness from the gelatinized starch. Makes a hell of a summer tomato sandwich.

My Sourdough Home arrived, so I have started daily feedings. No sourdough loaves just yet, but I am eager to see how they will come out after controlling the temperature of the starter. Also made Japanese milk bread from the test recipe again.

How about a recipe for Greek pizza? - especially for those who live 3000 miles from MA...

I'm spending the next couple of hours experimenting with converting my recipe for Moravian Sugar Cake to a gluten free version for a great friend. Wish me luck.

Made pizza and a loaf of Ken Forkish's "The Standard" bread from his new cookbook, which is the most frequent bread made here. What I really want to say is that I cleaned up from all of that with my new Teiger dough cloth, as recommended here, and it's as excellent as recommended, and my regular kitchen sponge is so much happier now that it's not gummed up with old dough.

I made a loaf of the sandwich bread from the ANOVA app. That was for our Airbnb guests who checked in on Saturday. On a sidenote, I also prepared 42 meals that we called meals for Maui, traditional Hawaiian plate lunch, and traded them for donations from friends and neighbors. We donated $650 to Chef Hui this morning. Every little bit helps!

I didn’t do any sourdough - but I made some challah for Rosh Hashanah and banana bread because we had some extra bananas!

Wow-trip down Memory Lane. When I was in grad school one of my roommates worked at the Watertown House of Pizza and we ate many a Greek pizza. Love those pans!

Growing up in lower NH we had a disproportionate number of pizza places for my towns size and all but one were Greek pizza (not counting dominos, a thing unto itself). Idk if it’s because of the proliferation, but to this day a Greek slice is the only kind I actively Do Not Want. And having just come from a visit, I am feeling my distaste Particularly Activated, so a fated post.

Baked a s’mores tart using some crumbs from a batch of gf chai spice shortbread and a spelt sourdough for some friends Rosh Hashanah dinner!

Plenty of Greek style in RI too.

Maine is full of House of Pizzas, in almost every little town - the pizza I grew up on. And you're right, not that great!
