The House Smells So Good
Hey, new recipe alert! We had a great fish dinner this weekend. Some Parmesan encrusted pan-fried cod with sweet potato fries, green salad and berry shortcake for dessert. I finally cooked fish and all the tasty breading didn't fall off, it's a miracle! And since I haven't really baked anything in awhile and we happen to be out of bread I whipped up a couple of loaves. Joe found this great recipe for cornmeal honey bread and what about that doesn't sound tasty? Nothing!
And it was pretty delicious, though I was a bit skeptical since it didn't look like it was rising enough. But after plenty of time and a little kneading, it happened. That dough puffed right up. The melted butter basted over the top turned a rich crusty brown. And the house smells like amazingness. Yummy, carby amazingness. So go make it. You don't even need a bread maker. Just some time, some yeast and an oven. Heck, even if the bread tastes like cardboard (which it shouldn't) your house will still smell like a tiny, French bakery. I want to bottle that smell.
