LOVE THE SMELL OF FRESH BAKED BREAD

Came home today to fresh baked bread.  Don't you love that aroma?

2nd Man got home early and baked some bread that he had rising since this morning.  I know you'll want recipes and all that goes with that, but this was already a done deal.  Sadly, I didn't have the chance to photo each step, and besides, he just sort of wings it, experimenting with different ingredients and amounts .  For example on this, same bread dough, he was trying out different designs on top, go figure.  Side note, I like the one in the foreground.

Still I wanted to share what was baking in our oven today, what's baking in yours?  Bread?  Pies?  Casseroles?  Cakes?

Soon, when we're at the farm more regularly, or have some rainy weekends in town, he wants to regularly bake all sorts of stuff and I reminded him we'll need recipes and photographs to share every step of the way.

You live with a blogger, get used to it.

He just rolled his eyes.

Whatever.

  3. He needs to have a bakery if he can bake like that! Looks good, you are lucky, I've never been good at baking, but it doesn't stop me from trying.

    1. Ha, thanks, I'll pass that along to him. His someday dream list includes that possibility, but for now, it's for us and family and friends and it's his relaxing time. Keep baking, like anything you just need to do it enough to make it second nature, and most of all, just enjoy it!!

  4. Those look great. I will be doing my monthly baking soon for the Tuesdays With Dorie: Baking With Julia. But it sure would be fun to find a monthly baking club that did primarily breads and savories instead of sweets.

    1. Not sure what Tuesdays with Dorie is but I'll have to check that out. Yeah, he loves to bake cakes but he really enjoys breads and rolls and savory things like that. Let us know if you find something?? Thanks for stopping by as always, you are so kind!

  5. we love homemade bread here too and are pretty good at making it! from the looks of it, that is artisan bread and it looks deelish! we just usually eat plain, 'ol white bread. we eat bread more in the fall and winter months - we just hate heating up the kitchen in the summer months. which reminds me - i need to find someone who makes bread in their solar oven.

    your friend,
    kymber

    1. Hey hey! Yes, isn't it good? Yep, Artisan bread, yummy! He'll crank out some plain ol white bread on occasion too, and we love it. I love this bread with some olive oil and sea salt. Mmmm....I can relate though to the hot kitchen. We'll have to work on that, ha.

      And speaking of....solar ovens, yes, we want one too! You need to check out Dani over at: http://ecofootprintsa.blogspot.com/ She's got a lot of experience with solar ovens, and has done some cool things. She's got some great links for more info on that.

      Thanks Kymber, we appreciate you stopping by!

  6. Bake a loaf of French baguette. I would post a picture if I could figure out how to do it. I'm with TT, where is a savory baking club, ha. I'm not so big on cakes and such. They look pretty!

    1. Thanks for stopping by. Yes, a baguette is wonderful. Not sure if you meant you baked one or were suggesting it. He's made a couple on occasion, but not in awhile. It might be time to suggest that again, ha. He does enjoy cakes, but he's so fussy and particular about how they should come out, and the frosting and the decoration, he says bread is just so much more relaxing and primal. I can understand that. :-)

  7. I hate to bake bread. It's not that I really HATE it, I hate how fast we eat it! From the lips straight to the hips, that's how homemade bread goes in this house! When two people can consume an entire loaf in two days, that's just sad. almost as sad as that entire rhubarb pie we ate in two days :-)

    1. Those two loaves were gone in about two days. Yes, I TOTALLY can relate. Of course, I also would have eaten that entire pie, probably by myself! LOL! Hey, good food is good food, right?

  8. Very pretty bread. I baked a loaf of artisan bread yesterday and it didn't look as good as it usually does, but it sure tasted good...all full of chewy yummy whole grains and seeds...just the way Mr Man likes it.

    I make a batch of dough that sits in the fridge (for up to 2 weeks) and you can bake it easily as often as you want. It makes 6-8 loaves I think.

    Wanted to stop by and say good morning! And my husband was the same way--"Geez--do you have to take pictures of everything you cook???" "Yup", I says...lol

    1. Thank you for stopping by, and although a couple of days late, Good Morning to you too!! He has some dough he keeps in the fridge, so I guess it's the same kind of stuff. And no worries, sometimes his isn't the prettiest in the world either (amazing how different days can produce different rises and such) but it's always delicious inside. Some fresh butter...mmm...now I wish we hadn't eaten it all, ha.

      And yes, I'm always trying to capture pictures of either what he's cooking or I'm cooking, and he says the same thing. :-)
