In the kitchen . . . Food, food, food . . . And a simple bun recipe . . .

There has been a lot happening in the kitchen over this last week:
The oven cranked to its highest temperature for traditional pizza . . .
As well as a multi-grain pizza crust . . .
Mild risotto . . . I always forget about risotto . . .
Homemade buns for garden burgers . . .
Bun Recipe
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

In a large bowl stir gently together and then let sit until 
yeast foams to the top:
1+1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon honey
2+1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (one package)

Add and knead until elastic.
If the dough is too wet add more flour.
If the dough is sticky, oil your hands:
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 cups white flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil 
1 egg

Cover and let sit in a warm place for about an hour and a half.

Divide into six equal pieces and flatten into buns. 
Make sure they are pretty flat because they will rise.

Arrange on an oiled cookie sheet and 
bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until nicely golden. 

Then there were peanut butter cookies . . .
Which I can't eat, but on occasion have a craving to bake . . .
And Mexican wedding cakes . . . Ooo I love Mexican wedding cakes . . .
I thank my oven everyday . . .
