So how do I reconcile this with my overwhelming love for baking, flowers, and the creation of a beautiful home? Easy. I have a keen understand of one of the fundamentals of feminism: choice.
I choose to knead, sift, measure, and drink tea while I wait for my dough to rise. This was my first yeast bread! I didn't let it rise quite long enough on the third, and final rise because I was impatient and excited, so it's not as glorious as it could be, but that's all part of the learning experience, and the taste was simply delicious. And those sticky buns? Holy God. Best the boyfriend and I have ever tasted. So soft, and not too sweet. My recipe came from Sherry Yard's "The Secrets of Baking." A wonderful book, and everything we've made so far as come out like a dream.
Now I need to figure out how to post pictures from flickr to here. Anyone have any hints?
