  1. Here’s something I made for the kids for our pre-thanksgiving Thanksgiving meal with my sister and her family. They head up north for thanksgiving so Travis parents can see the kids.
  2. From the King Arthur flour Cookie Companion. These are called Harvest Moons. Some with the suggested pumpkin pie spice glaze, some without.
  3. Ok I’ve talked some with the people who originally posted that link on another forum. I used a cup of Black Treacle and a cup of Organic Honey. So in order to balance it all out, I will need to add just slightly less than two more cups of flour. Judging by my research, the original listed “lager dough” recipe can be translated as follows: 1 kg of treacle = 2.97 cups 1 kg of honey = 2.94 cups 2 kgs of All-purpose flour equals 16 cups. So to lower the amount you need 1 cup of treacle, 1cup of honey, and 5 and 1/3 cup of the flour. After that there is the fermentation period, then the adding of spices/salt and fillings, then finally the leavening.
  4. Good idea, but I think I’ll stick to just baking soda for right now, though. Made some burgers to try them out. They taste great! It a little too big. Perhaps O should make smaller ones? Also by the end of the burger, the meat was slipping out some.
  5. OK, I added a cup and a half more flour to it, and it does look a lot more like a cookie dough now. I'm just gonna wait now and see what happens.
  6. Just 1/4 of a cup of baking soda, with 2 quarts of water. I read about food grade Lye for pretzels in an old issue of Food & Wine, but I don’t know where to get it, and would probably be too skittish to use it.
  7. Pretzel buns, made this morning.
  8. Threw these together this morning, gonna make some burgers for them later. These are pretzel buns!
  9. Probably, it was pretty loose when I put them together. My understanding of baking ratios is usually defined more by cups then grams, so I’ll consider taking this down. Let me see if there’s any reaction first. EDIT: I really don’t want to throw this away, how much flour would you suggest to make things more even?
  10. Ok I’ve taken your advice and have replaced the tape with an X of tape across the top. Some air probably would be good. It’s out in the garage right now, and it’s pretty cold out there.
  11. https://www.wildfermentation.com/german-fermented-gingerbread-cookies/ I saw this link on a baking forum a year or so ago, and have been meaning to try it out ever since. Finally, I bit the bullet and got the stuff for it. There's a huge grocery store called Jungle Jim's here in Cincinnati that has food from all over the world, and I managed to find everything there. Basically I translated the recipe as 1 cup Treacle + 1 cup Organic Honey + 2 cups Organic All-purpose flour. Fermented Gingerbread, it just sounds fascinating. My Great Grandpa Balzhizer used to make his own wine...and his own Sauerkraut....in the same room, which is probably the reason my dad can't eat Sauerkraut, but that's another story. So this is out in the garage right now, and due to my paranoia, I decided to masking tape the thing shut, and I hope that won't be a problem. It's November 8th right, now, and I figure I'll try baking it around December 20th. I'll let you guys know how it goes.
  12. That looks incredible! I can never seem to get my oven baked pizza to look right, it doesn’t help that our oven isn’t the best in the world, and tends to act, well, “wonky” where the heat is concerned. My best results for pizza are usually a very thin crust, made on our outdoor grill.
  13. Made these last Friday. They’re good, no doubt of that, but they taste too plain. These things need something, maybe some spice (cinnamon at least) beyond salt, perhaps darker chocolate. Here’s the recipe. Deep Dish Oatmeal Fudge Bars what you need: 1 cup butter 2 eggs 2 cups brown sugar 1/3 cup milk 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/2 cups flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 3 cups oatmeal In a saucepan over medium heat, melt together 1 can eagle’s brand sweetened condensed milk 1/3 cup butter 1 tsp. vanilla 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips Directions: how to make it: Mix the butter, eggs and brown sugar. Add vanilla and milk. Slowly incorporate the rest of the dry ingredients. Mix well. I prefer using a stand mixer since it’s quite thick. Spread 3/4 of the cookie mixture on the bottom of a greased 13×9 pan, pour chocolate mixture, then spread rest of cookie mixture on tops in spoonfuls (won’t cover completely-but will leave cool designs). The top can tend to get done before it’s completely cooked, so you can put aluminum foil over it for the last five or so if it looks like it’s browning too much. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool, otherwise it won’t set up and will just run when you cut into it. Any advice that can be given would be appreciated.
  14. Here’s what I made Friday. Deep dish oatmeal fudge bars. Tomorrow I’m making some baguettes!
