8/10/07 : a day of thinking and a day of baking. it has been a good many years since i have attempted to be a goddess in the kitchen, but since i was staying at andy's i decided that it'd be nice for him to come home from work to fresh bread (a dense olive oil loaf) and cookies (gingery cornish fairings). i really rather enjoyed myself, i have to say. i fully intend to bake on a regular basis. it's such a pleasant way to pass time and you get great tasting goodies as a result. win win.
