Today I finally had the courage to try something I’ve never done before. I decided to try my hand at cooking something…with yeast!
Awhile back I had seen Chelsey’s post where she made homemade English muffins. “Looks Good”, I thought….but I never imagined I’d make them myself.
But look what just a few short months of blogging will do for ya – I’m spreading my wings and venturing out of my comfort zone!
I used this recipe and literally followed it to a T. I’m notorious for changing things around and ending up with epic failures. I did NOT want to fail on this mission, so I even went so far as to whip out a tsp. measurer (usually I just eye-ball) so that I could be certain everything was done according to the directions.
Like the heart shape? Yeah, I got creative there in the middle
The one I selected for my reward treat had been one of the thicker ones. I tore it open and it was so perfect inside – EXACTLY the right texture!
Slathered a little butter and blueberry Bonne Maman and it was just like heaven in my mouth!
Not only was it a total success, this is actually one of my typical breakfasts (usually with AB, but you know…) and this fresh-at-home, ZERO preservatives variety cost mere pennies compared to my normal batch of store-bought English muffins.
Amazing! I was so proud of my yeast success that I think I may just try my hand at some homemade rolls for dinner!
I had to run into school for awhile, but I got distracted by our lab’s “mascot,” Charlie (the coconut)
I’ll have to tell you more about Charlie some other time.
I’m on my way out the door for $4 yoga happy hour! Love the stuff! I do, however, plan to spend some time this evening checking out training plans for triathlons – so exciting!
Do you ever practice yoga? What variety is your favorite?
