Welcome back to the blog. Joe and I are officially residents of Rensselaer New York. It's a whole new world up here with adventures and journeys I can't wait to share.
This blog will include tidbits of a multitude of things.
Updates on our newlywed lives. New recipes I've attempted in the kitchen. Outfits of the day, AKA #ootd for my fellow "hashtaggers".
And anecdotes about living, loving and making memories in the great and extremely cold state of New York.
First up: Snow, snow and more snow! Since I have arrived the average temperature has been about 17 degrees. A local news anchor claimed this is the coldest the upstate has seen in 4 years...great.
In today's post I wanted to treat readers to my first attempt at making a loaf of bread with our new Kitchen Aid Mixer that we received for a wedding present.
My first recipe came from "This Gal Cooks": Rosemary & roasted Garlic Bread. She has a wonderful blog full of easy recipes with great instructions here.
|Doesn't this look like fun?|
The end product was eventually a success, but a few tips for the novice housewife.
1st: Always use a dough hook when mixing most doughs, especially a yeast bread dough...duh right?
I knew this, I was just so excited to use the mixer that all common sense flew out the window.
|Correct dough hook attachment|
|Hubby had to take over photography at this point because of uber "doughy" hands|
Do you remember your newlywed kitchen blunders? Feel free to share!
With love from New York and back,
