Don't mean to toot my own horn but...

Toot, toot!

Look at this bread I made! Aren't you proud of me? Well, you should be proud because I am otherwise known as Caroline, ye-woman-who-destroys-everything-involving-yeast-and-baked-in-the-oven.

Aside from cake mixes and Duncan Hines oatmeal cookies (which don't even involve any yeast), my record on making bread and other delicious yeasty things has been abysmal. My two forays into homemade pizza dough have turned out horrendous-tasting and burnt. Yuck.

But lo and behold, the baking fairy has blessed me with her powers! Of course, I am no Julia Child or Betty Crocker, but this cinnamon raisin bread came out pretty well. Not horrendous-tasting. Not burnt. But definitely sweet and soft and a little gooey in the middle. Yum!

And I have two more loaves sitting in the refrigerator too...


  1. yummy! Good for you! I haven't mastered baking yet either but I try...

  2. Mmm yummy, if you lived in California I could make you MY wife!!!

  3. I do come with a generous dowry... :)

  4. Oooh, delish. I would have eaten the whole loaf before the camera could even capture the moment.

    Miss you.

  5. Ummm...I never remember you making that in Roman Gardens...it looks delicious!
