I don’t know what I’d do with this tea towel, but it is super cute. Frame it? I was checking out a website that was linked from Design*Sponge (see previous knit post) and found this online shop that’s like a flea market with a click! Too cute, I say, too cute.
The best pizza dough recipe in the world: Merci a Williams-Sonoma: The Essentials of Baking
5 teaspoons yeast, 2 1/4 cup warm water +
5 cups flour (I mix 2 whole and 3 white), 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 teaspoons sugar, 1 tablespoon salt.
Mix, knead, let rise for 1 1/2 – 2 hrs, roll, and top away! Delicious and perfect crust everytime!
(Just thought I’d share. If interested, bake at 500 for 15 minutes. Makes two large pizzas.)
In researching hot cross buns, I found an article highlighting the tradition of hot cross buns in England via Traverse City, MI. Hot cross buns are traditionally made on Good Friday and the cross represents the cross, obviously, and the bun represents the rock which was rolled away from Christ’s tomb. (The sweetness also is a break from the Lent fast.)
As the baker in the article is quoted, saying, “The central thing is the cross.” Yes, indeed.
Heather LeFebvre posted a link to her hot cross bun recipe in the comment previous. If Heather LeFebvre said to make this recipe, than this recipe it is! When it comes to all things English, Heather knows best. [smile] My only question is where do you get currants?
