Tuesdays with Dorie Rewind: Arborio Rice Pudding

I'm still a week behind with TWD, but the positive side to it is I can read all of the tips from the other bakers' experiences. For instance, I had to cook the pudding for 55-60 minutes instead of the recommend 30 minutes that was written in the cookbook. I was made aware of this problem by reading the comments from other bakers. Apparently the is a typo in the recipe. Dorie herself left a comment on the P&Q stating that this was the case.

I love rice pudding. I enjoyed this recipe and I didn't even use whole milk. I just used what I had which was 1%. I did end up adding cinnamon to it though because it just didn't seem quite right without it and I absolutely love cinnamon. It's my favorite spice.

I didn't care for the chocolate version. It was way too chocolaty for me--and I love chocolate.
Thanks to Isabelle from Les gormandises d'lsa for choosing this recipe. Visit the Tuesday's with Dorie Blog for more information.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Kugelhopf

Things were going along smoothly with this bread until it was time to add the butter. Then, without even checking the recipe, I threw in the two sticks I had left out to bring to room temperature. The only problem was I only needed one! I panicked for a moment until I realized that I could just double the recipe.

I'm glad I did because my bunt pan is kind of big. The only thing I forgot to double was the raisins. It's too bad because the raisin part is the tastiest!

TWD Rewind: Rugelach

I am a week behind in my TWD posts. A lot has been happening in the past couple of weeks. I thought I would be able to do two posts today to catch up, but it was unrealistic. I'm barely getting this post as it is.

This week's recipe was fabulous! I love these little "cookies." Check out the Tuesday's with Dorie website for other posts on this recipe.

I'd like to take a minute to thank all of the veterans! I'm so thankful for people who are willing to sacrifice for the freedom of other people. We had a fun and unique way of celebrating today which I'll have to post about another time. Again thank you servicemen and women past and present!

Newly Created

This blog was created to share my baking adventures with my other baking blogger friends.  I haven't had the chance to move the baking posts from my family blog yet, so it looks a little bare. Next Tuesday I'll publish my first baking post on this blog. 

Thanks for stopping by!
