1  3 challah loaves in Recipes and Cooking Tips by C.C. on: May 20, 2008 09:33:23 PM
Hello all! I recently started to make bread for the first time and decided to try making challah, for starters. Here are some of my results. Bigger images are available (all linked to flickr) if you click on the ones below. Please enjoy!

Here is the first loaf of bread I ever baked! I accidentally let it rise an extra hour (or two?) so the braiding effect was lost, but fortunately it was still tasty. For this I used the recipe from chaitimeblog.wordpress.com but halved it.

My second challah was my favorite in appearance and taste. This time I used a recipe from www.bakingandbooks.com/ but used fresh apples (grated, with juice squeezed out) instead of dried ones. I also halved the recipe here. The results were dense, soft, and sweet. I should also point out that both of these blogs either describe or link to helpful tutorials on weaving dough.

This third loaf also uses a recipe from Baking and Books, the apricot chocolate challah. This time I decided to use the exact amounts in the recipe but divided the dough up into 4 loaves. Also, I used white chocolate which makes it hard to see in the picture, but trust me, you could taste it.

So that's what I've done so far on my challah-making adventure... once I've tried baking more of other types of bread I'll have to write a new post here but until then, thanks for looking!

2  tiny pies :D in Dessert by C.C. on: March 12, 2008 07:34:53 AM
My first attempt at mini-food, assisted by my good friend Emily:

Some are filled with blueberries and others are filled with peach + rum.

And mini chicken pot pies! These are really delicious.

3  Kon (from Bleach) amigurumi in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by C.C. on: November 26, 2007 11:05:12 PM
This was a birthday present for my brother, who is a big fan of the anime Bleach.

For those unfamiliar with the series, this is Kon (screenshot credit: wikipedia):

And this is my crocheted version!

I used one of Ana Paula's Tiny Ami patterns but reshaped the torso, crocheted the muzzle, and added the hand/foot "pads" and belly button. Thanks for looking!

4  my first successful mousse :) (and first post!) in Dessert by C.C. on: August 18, 2007 09:38:18 AM

[Something New]: chocolate mousse by spinphase, on Flickr

This is the second mousse I've ever attempted. I first tried to make mousse using this recipe (eggless) but for whatever reason the coffee mixture turned chunky during the folding... any thoughts from anyone who has used a similar recipe?

The chocolate mousse pictured above uses this (egged) recipe and it worked! I would really recommend making this.
