Fall Baking

I thought I'd share some more of the bread I've baked from this book - Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. These breads were made a few weeks ago. I'm getting ready to start another batch of bread soon.

I made an Onion Pletzel. It was so good. Fried Onions, salt, butter and poppy seeds covered this flat bread. It was sort of like an everything bagel. The smell while it baked was heavenly.

Here it is just before it goes in the oven.

It's just out of the oven. Look at all those yummy fried onions.

I also made a Challah. This bread was so sweet, soft and delicious. I could eat this bread at every meal.

Just before going into the oven.

Just before going into my mouth! Yum.

I've been in a baking mood lately. Maybe I'm getting ready for the cold, snowy winter and storing up food. The other day I roasted 2 pie pumpkins and pureed them. I didn't take any pictures of the process. But I got about 4 -5 cups of pumpkin puree for pies, breads, or soup. I also roasted the seeds and we've been snacking on those.

I love fall cooking and foods.
