I don't know. I'm just bad with breads in general. Especially breads with things in them.

Well I've made bread before (including plain brioche). How hard can it be?

Apparently pretty hard. lol.
I'll stick to desserts, I suppose.

The egg custard tart came out well the other day, by the way. Thanks for the recipe.

I have a long-standing fear of breads that require yeast. Maybe it's just that I'm not patient enough for the rising and kneading parts. But I don't think I've ever seen brioche done in a bundt pan anyway, so it'll probably be fine.

Today I made "moussaka" pie with Bisquick and a banana-raspberry bread. I wish I'd doubled the recipes and made extras to keep at home, because it was hard to send them out without taking a bite. I also made strawberry-kiwi puree for the baby, and used some of the juice in his oatmeal; he loved it.

I made cinnamon-brown sugar oatmeal with some milk. I make my oatmeal on the thicker side so that when I put milk in it the milk forms little rivers of cinnamon flavored goodness throughout the oatmeal. Then I put some over-ripe banana on top.


This is being consumed with grape juice.


I am the fruit whisperer.

I prefer to eat bananas when they're slightly under-ripe, but when they start getting too mushy, it's fruit smoothie time.

I'm the same; I can't stand bananas once they've started to spot because then they're too mushy. I'll only eat them when they're still a bit green. Once a single spot shows up, it's smoothie, sliced-on-cereal and banana bread.

I also prefer my bananas a little on the firmer side, but almost never manage to eat them before they get icky. This is a good excuse for me to mash them up and use them in baking or other recipes.

Another good trick is to peel them, chop them up, and freeze the chunks. That way you can just pop 'em in the blender for smoothies and you don't need to use ice.

Picture time! Chocolate and hazelnut brioche;



I wish I'd made more ganache, but I still can't wait to try a slice of one of them.

I just want to say I love the people at Z pizza. Them and the small pizzeria down the road are the only ones who give us (gaurds) free food from time to time when their doing delievery.

That said I just ate two slices of pizza, mushroom and sausage, and feta cheese, artichoke, and mushroom pizza. Oh so full.
