Today is an exciting day. We are leaving for NYC and plan to spend a few nights there. For once, it’s going to be a fun, non-business trip. I’m excited, especially since I’ll be spending a birthday there 🙂 And I get to see this lady. I’ll still be posting tomorrow so check back in for a fun fashion post! Until then, enjoy these baguette photos which totally remind me of our trip to Paris, though the baguettes are more French-style and not quite as crispy and hard. A actually said he preferred them this way.
Thanks for reading and have a happy Thursday!
HOMEMADE FRENCH STYLE BAGUETTES
1 T yeast
2 T honey
1/2 c warm water
3 3/4 c + 1 T flour
3/4 c warm water
Mix yeast, honey, and 1/2 c warm water in a mixing bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes. Add in flour and 3/4 c water alternately and mix well to combine. Knead dough until dough is elastic and bounces back when pressed in with finger. Cover for 25-30 minutes and then divide dough in half. Roll out each half into a rectangle. Fold in thirds (longways), making sure to seal (pinch) ends well. Place each baguette on a greased baking sheet that is dusted with cornmeal. Cut several diagonal slashes into tops of baguettes.
Place on middle rack in 450F preheated oven. At the same time, place several ice cubes in a pan on the bottom rack of the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
Spring clothing is finally hitting stores and I’m loving all the styles I’ve spotted. My boho spirit is obsessing over all of it: embroidered tops, embroidered denim, lace, and all those florals. I went on a bit of a spree trying to find stuff to take with me to Ireland (1 week friends!) and now…
I rarely buy salad dressing anymore, except for a few from Trader Joes – they have some of the best dressings! But most of the time, I just whip up my own whether it’s a ranch or in this case, a blue cheese dressing. This has become a favorite in our household, one that we use to…
Figuring out what to wear in Hawaii in February can be a little challenging. The weather is obviously very warm but you have to factor in nights, rain and what types of activities you’ll be doing throughout the day. If you’re going to live at the beach each day, then you might just want to…
Who has tried an authentic Philly cheesesteak? The cheesesteak is a must if you’re ever in the Philadelphia area and there’s no question as to whether or not you should try it. But the really question is where do you go for one? Just type in “best cheesesteak in Philadelphia” and you get numerous sites with…
I think these distressed boyfriend jeans are the softest pair of jeans I own. The distressed portions are real too. I think it’s kind of fun how a lot of distressed jeans that you can buy today are digitally distressed (so as to prevent further rips) but I do prefer the authentically done pairs. I actually…
I love salads but I have to admit, the lazy side of me sometimes balks at the thought of having to wash all that produce and then chop everything up. It’s embarrassing really considering salads are one of the easiest foods to prepare. Pretty sure already washed and chopped lettuce bags were made just for…
