Tuesdays With Dorie, a baking event that takes place every Tuesday (See all my TWD posts here)?
I started out with intention of baking with the wonderful group of TWD bakers till the end but laziness got the better of me and I only managed to stay for close to 3 years. But I'm still glad that I joined TWD as I had tackled 108 out of 300+ recipes from the book, Baking: From My Home to Yours and this is by far the most used cookbook that I own.
Speaking of cookbooks, I have close to 200 of them but less than half of the books are used regularly. The rest of the books are sitting in the shelves collecting dust and I only browse through them occasionally. One good example is Baking with Julia. I got the book back in 2005 but I've not cooked anything from it yet. So when I found out that it will be used to restart another round of TWD, I immediately jump on the bandwagon as I see it as an opportunity to make good use of the book!
Anyway, to kickstart TWD: Baking with Julia, Laurie (founder of TWD) and Jules have chosen white loaves recipe for all TWD bakers to try out. I'm crazy over bread-baking recently, and so I'm more than happy to try out a new bread recipe. I made half a batch and I got a beautiful loaf of bread that comes with a crispy crust and soft center. It is so delicious that my hubby and I polished off the whole loaf of bread in 1 1/2 days!
If you want to give the recipe a try, hop over to Laurie's or Jules's blog. Don't forget to check out the rest of the TWD bakers' versions of white loaves here.
