Cooking Today

I decided to do some cooking today. I haven't made bread in years except using the bread maker. Today I decided to make it the old fashioned way. Since it had been so long, I started with a simple white bread recipe from my trusty Good Housekeeping Cookbook.

Here are the first two loaves of bread - with a couple of slices taken off the end of one loaf. We had it for a snack when Bill got home from work. We didn't even let it cool off. I can't wait to have toast in the morning.

As long as the oven was hot, I made a batch of oatmeal cookies. I just use the recipe off the oatmeal box and it works great each time. I know there are a lot of good recipes out there but the one off the box is our favorite. I don't put raisins in them because Bill doesn't like them but I bet they would be great with raisins also.

I am also working on making luggage tags to teach at guild on Tuesday. Will finish one tomorrow and post a photo - today I had to make a run to Hancocks to buy vinyl for the tags so didn't get the sample done.


  1. The bread looks great. I'll bet the cookies would be great with dried cranberries!

  2. Yummm, cooler weather encourages us to do more baking doesn't it?

  3. Those oatmeal minus raisin cookies sure do look good. (Oatmeal raisin is one of my favorite cookies...)


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
