Fancy Schmancy

Because I am technologically challenged, I decided to use Windows Live Writer as a publishing tool. So I’m just playing around. I hope it doesn’t make me cry like all the other mean girl applications do. (I’m probably using the words “publishing tool” and “applications” incorrectly, but that’s all I know.)

And now it’s time for gratuitous pictures!

Let’s call this “Breads I Have Baked”.

First up, we have Buttered Rosemary Rolls in a cast iron skillet. These are a staple at our house. Thanks Pioneer Woman!

PS…you’ll notice that two of the rolls are nekkid, rosemary-wise. That’s because one member of our family has not developed a taste for rosemary—yet.

And now, here is my friend Naan. Mmmmmm, Naaaaaan. (Say that like Homer Simpson). I don’t remember where I got this recipe. I’ve tried several recipes I’ve found online. You just have to experiment. I haven’t found the perfect one, but I suspect since I’m not baking them in a hot clay oven, they won’t ever be as wonderful as the ones we get at our local Indian Restaurant. But they don’t suck, either.

No knead bread. My carpal tunnelly wrists thank Jim Lahey. Note: I use 1 1/2 tsp salt and 1 1/2 c water after some experimentation. The amount of water you need will vary by your regional humidity and room temperatures. I always sprinkle sesame seeds on top, because who doesn’t love that nutty roasted sesame smell?

Well, ok. That was pretty easy. Yea, Windows Live Writer!
