Weekend plans

I'm anxiously awaiting a delivery from King Arthur Flour
I still haven't acted on my desire to do some serious bread baking so as soon as my box of goodies arrives, it's dough on.
I've baked quite a bit of bread in the past, but never any of the classics or much beyond regular American standards like cinnamon raisin bread or rolls. Recently, I found an absolutely amazing food blog, Moveable Feast It's one of those things that just grabbed my attention and wouldn't let go until I had read every single post. I was so inspired and intrigued by Louisa's tales of working as a professional cook in some of the greatest restaurants in Europe. Her's is an adventure that is richly detailed and makes for some of the best food reading on the net, IMO. Thanks Louisa!
Anyway, I've been addicted to food blogs in general lately, particularly those with really great photography. If this is your thing, do check out Food Porn Watch which is a continuious listing of recently updated food blogs. During my perusals of late, I ran across a recipe for a Cinnabon clone which, despite the fact that I don't actually care for the real thing, I've just got to try. Homemade cinnamon rolls happen to be one of my favorite things to make and eat and I'm always looking for ways to improve my product, so I'm going to give it a go and see what I can learn. I also found a lovely recipe complete with enticing photographs, for some Cinnamon-Caramom rolls that I had to put on my to-bake list as well. And thanks to Louisa, I'm also desperate to try making Croissants and Brioche...either that or get on the next flight to Paris...
So if I'm not dead from a butter overdose in the next few days, I should have some pictures to share soon.

My friend Nikki is hosting a girls night at her new house tonight and I'm so exicted! Boy thinks that my friends are loathe to invite me over or cook for me because I'm a food snob and my standards are too high but I don't want to believe him. I'm happy when anyone cooks anything for me and fortunately, my friends are all good cooks and great hostesses. Besides, I'd be happy to be invited over and served canned soup if it comes with good conversation and companionship.
