Weekend Bread Baking

I just spent about 4 hours in the kitchen baking for the school week. I am hating buying any sort of processed biscuit, cookie, cracker, bread or cake from the supermarket.

    Sounds like you had a great time in the kitchen with your daughter and your bread looks fantastic! Tessa Kiros is one of my favourite cook book authors. I also love her book titled “Falling Cloudberries”… I make her Finnish (Pula) Cinnamon & Cardamom Buns which my girls love. BTW they freeze really well.
