foodstuff: the results are in...

last week, i told the continuing tale of my life as a baker in this post.

i asked for your votes on what i should first attempt from peter reinhart's cookbook artisan breads every day.  

thank you for your enthusiastic responses!  i wish you could all be here to taste the results.

speaking of which, the votes are in...

cinnamon buns: 1
challah: 1
focaccia: 3

so we have a winner!

focaccia will be the first baked deliciousness from this beautiful book.  next friday i will report back with the results!

now i've got to go get ready for a secret event tomorrow which i will document and tell you all about next week.

in the meantime, here are a two caramel recipes i am daydreaming about...

david lebovitz's salted butter caramels


nothing but bonfires' fleur de sel caramels


...did i mention that candy making scares me too?

yay! looking forward to the focaccia. those caramels look so yummy. my only downfall after my carb love is my killer sweet tooth. :)

@sal...caramel has a special place in my heart. i adore it. perhaps a caramel sticky bun for breakfast?

@jackiebean...um, you and i are on the same page with our carb love and sweet teeth. see my above response to sal where i suggest indulging both at the same time.

Since I missed the first vote for bread, I am pre-voting for bread mission #2. Cinnamon Buns!!! And I wanna sample them too. ;P
