Pain au chocolat, croissant...everything is so much sexier and tastier in French! I used the Joy of Cooking recipe, that is one book I couldn't live without for sure. Everything's so well explained it makes it easy.
I've had a rough week, really. Who doesn't have some not-so-nice-days every once in a while?
What I do when I am stressed out is first, I take a deep breath, and then I go to my usual therapies of either running, crafting or cooking (I have to admit I also have kid like tantrums and meltdowns, but those are the lesser occasions) This week's therapy was baking...and I had so much fun! I prepared a heavenly Challah that we had with spiced wine for dinner, pizza dough for tomorrow's lunch and croissant dough for tea tomorrow. I also baked a whole wheat sponge bread, but I was watching a movie and I thought I had turned the oven off and I didn't...The bread did not burn, but it is really hard! Well, one of four is not that bad, is it? I've never made croissants myself, all that turning of the dough makes it look so complicated!
I'll let you know how they turned out tomorrow. See ya!
Hi, my name is Vanessa, thank you for stopping by at my blog.
I am a mother of three wonderful kids, and wife to a great husband.
I am an interior designer by trade but when I can do whatever I want, I choose to create things with my hands...
I am atracted to anything crafty, I would do so many things If only I had the time!!!
I am also a decent cook and I love to entertain my family and friends...
When I need to spend sometime on my own I tie my shoes and run...That is my "run away from it all" therapy...Good thing I always have home to come back.
Please drop me a note so I'll know I am not talking to myself...
