It’s here and while I’d say it has been a great little break with January off from blogging commitments, I’m happy that TWD is back!
I love making homemade bread and was happy to see that this was the first recipe chosen for our new Tuesdays With Dorie adventure to bake our way through another of Dorie Greenspan’s books, Baking With Julia. I have had this book for a couple years. This will be such a fun challenge as I’ve actually never made anything from it! I’ve flipped through it many times. I even used to watch Baking With Julia on PBS years ago—before Food Network became so popular. And who knew, Dorie herself was behind the scenes of that show right there along with the great, Julia Child. Love them both. Baking With Julia (obviously reruns) are on PBS again right now on Saturdays. I’ve been recording them.
If you knew me at all from the previous TWD, I had a hard time following recipes exactly and would always put my own spin (or alternate ingredients/healthy, etc.) on them. I don’t know if I’ll be able to stick with every recipe with this new book just as they are written, but I’m going to try. I’m off to a good start—I made the White Loaves exactly as written and followed the instructions to a tee! And by doing so, I got some great loaves of bread! The recipe said you could use all purpose flour or bread flour and I used bread flour.
Can’t wait to bake some more from this book! See ya in two weeks!
