Move Over Ciceros!

Last week I made the best pizza ever.  The secret?  Instead of using a pizza dough recipe, I used a focaccia recipe for the crust.  The previous pizza I made (see Oct 28 post) was way too doughy.  This one, however, was crispy and extremely flavorful.  One late night, I was struck hard with savory carb cravings and had to exercise great restraint to not gobble up the last remaining piece, which I had promised to save for a friend.  I am proud to say that I prevailed and didn’t succumb!  Much to the culinary delight of my friend 🙂

Bread Galore!!!

As the most technologically unsavvy of the four sisters, I am finally venturing into the world of blogging.  This is my first post ever.  Woohoo!

So what has been happening in my little corner of the world?  Well, I figured it was high time that I dust off the breadmaker that had been sitting idle in our closet for over a decade and put it to good use.  Breadmaking has become my latest fascination (as if the Wu sisters need any more hobbies).  In the past couple of months, I have made thirteen items ranging from banana chocolate chip bread (btw, these make great gifts), pizza dough, raisin bread, French bread (which was promptly converted to garlic bread), to Focaccia.  Yum!
