Birthday and Bread

So this is my adorable great-niece London.
Yikes I need a hair cut. *Why did no one tell me I looked like this?*
My nephews wife Toni (not London's mother)
My father and Me at London's first birthday party.

My beautiful daughter Jordan holding her second cousin.
My nephew Jacob his wife Mandy and their darling children London and Isaiah.
It would be remiss of me not to show what is going on in my kitchen. This is a lovely loaf of bread I baked not too long ago. I have been using the book by Zoe Franciois and Jeff Hertzberg MD. Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day I swear by this main Boulé Bread Recipe. I have learned to use less yeast and then add sour dough starter to this and it makes incredible pitas, pizza dough, bread and even bignets. It really does only take 5 minutes to do. Look at the gluten cloak on this bread! I love how the interior is so moist that the crust crackles (sings) even after you pull it out of the oven.

I gotta get the recipe for the bread-especially how you make the pita. I can't stand anything the stores sell. Yesterday Kierstin saw a recipe for homemade hummus. She is THE pickiest eater in my home and her reply to the hummus was, Mom will you make that, it looks yummy!!!
