mini-cheesecakes (a regular staple at most family get togethers)
I also decided to try a hot cross bun recipe (after being recently inspired by a tweet from an awesome person). I was originally going to make it by hand, but after all the moving I decided to give my wrist a rest and use the bread machine.
recipe since my bread machine can't make such large batches, and I may have messed something up. The obnoxiously direction of putting "2 eggs into 2-cup measuring cup. add enough water to measure 1 1/3 cups" didn't make me too happy either. Why exactly aren't we on the metric system? Gah.
different recipe in the bread machine.
While I was waiting for the bread machine to churn out another batch of dough, I made a small basket for my parents and a bag for my brother. I don't usually do anything for Easter but I dont know. This year I wanted to. I was probably partially motivated by a desire to have a bunch of candy in the house.
Next time I'll have to remind myself to start cooking yeast recipes earlier in the day. Mid-afternoon is probably not the best time to start.
