I have been busy baking, just not updating this site. 

I have been baking several favorite recipes over and over again, and tweaking the recipes a little here and there.  

One of them is using the Pizza recipe,  and turning it into a roll.  Brushing the top with a mix of olive oil, paprika, cayenne, dried herbs such as thyme, parsley, rosemary.   This is one of the favorites for the kids!  In no time,  it's gobbled up.

Another variation using the Pizza dough is Focaccia.  I learnt this from an Italian mama,  its so easy and can be done within 4 hours,  its done.  Great as a party food.  Using a rectangular pan,  pour some olive oil,  pan the dough using fingertips till it is all spread out.  Brush with olive oil, throw some herbs such as rosemary or thyme,  shake some salt over.  

Another one that I like is the simple white loaf that I got the  recipe from a Japanese web site,  using Google translate,  figured out what the recipe says.  And, why must white loaf be in the shape of a loaf?

Why can't it be round?  Well,  I made it round! 

Another favorite is the Deli Rye Bread,  love that it's soft, open crumb.  So,  why not mix a little with whole wheat,  add herbs or nuts? 

Why not turn it into a burger roll to make a burger?  This burger is healthier,  and certainly taste better!  

I simply love experimenting,  and try out new things.  Perhaps it's time to focus on this.
