Stuffed Vegetables

Ever since my daughter changed schools, I have been having a tough time. The school provides her a lovely lunch and so now I am left to cooking lunches only for myself. If you are not aware, the most boring thing ever is cooking for one. So my strategy is to plan my blog posts…

Stuffed Sourdough Pizza

It is nice to be back to blogging after a month. I had a lovely vacation to Bhopal and Indore. The husband and I aim to visit all UNESCO World heritage sites across the world starting with India. So this time we visited the Sanchi stupa and Bhimbetka caves near Bhopal and some other historical…

Seeded Sourdough Boule for Bread Bakers

Now that I have figured out the basics of baking a sourdough bread, I decided to take the next step with some delicious additions to the loaf. I thought of giving it some crunch with pumpkin seeds and a good bite with replacing some of the all purpose flour with whole wheat flour. As of…

Sourdough bread – Coil Fold

Today we have the second in the series of ‘Bread of a kind’. I have made another sourdough bread, a boule but this time I have used the coil folding method instead of the usual stretch and fold method for strengthening and developing the gluten in the dough. Coil fold seemed easier to me and…

Stiff Dough Sourdough Bread

This week’s theme is ‘Breads of a kind’ and it is as if this theme was picked just for me. I was so ecstatic to see this and the buns theme in the same month. That just means more baking and it got a spring to my step. As I continue discovering innumerable things about…

Spicy Buns

For the third and final day of the ‘Roll and fold like a bun’ theme, I have some spicy buns. I was so tempted to call these quick buns because these are made with yeast. After the sourdough spree I had, the fact that I can actually complete the bread from start to finish in…

Sourdough Burger Buns

My laptop is acting crazy and making weird sounds. Looks like I have to give up on it and get a new one. The good part is that I had thankfully taken pictures on my phone and I am able to use them here. Else it would be tragic that, for once, I was ready…

Buttery Sourdough Buns

My long cherished dream of being able to bake with sourdough is beginning to take shape. During our Blogging Marathon meet last month, Varada gave me and some others dehydrated sourdough flakes and also shared a whole lot of information about baking with sourdough. I was so excited that I wanted to start right away…

Blogging Marathon 100 Meet up – Day 4&5

Day 4 – Dress code – Blue I woke up around 5 on Day 4 because it was bread baking time!! Usually I like to bake bread when I am alone at home because it is my ‘me time’ therapy session all rolled into one. But this time I was excited because I was baking…

Blogging Marathon 100 Meet up – Day 3

I remembered so many things about day 1 and 2 after I published my post yesterday. It is just that so much happened it was all quite overwhelming. Day 3 – Dress code – Pink Day 3 was kind of a relaxing day for me. Usha was looking relatively free instead of organising one thing…
