  1. Here we go, happy Friday!
    Your bread looks stunning, well done Twinkle 2.0 ???

  2. Good looking bread Angie – I need to revive “Rosebud”. I think we should have your recipe! Happy FF πŸ™‚

    Good morning Angie!! I so agree with you. Cooking is the easy part. It is the pictures, writing and the posting that takes a lot of time!

  4. Suchitra says:

    Lovely features!! Happy Fiesta Friday!

  5. Suchitra says:

    The bread looks super delicious Angie!! Love walnuts in anything. I wonder how the pumpkin tastes??

  6. I know what you mean on the writing the steps thing – what I often do is write the rest of the post, edit the photos and put in the ingredients in the recipe then leave it a day or two and come back to write up the recipe itself. For one, given I have done everything else I kind of feel obliged to then finish it after that, and also I find it helps coming to it fresh with only that left to do.

    Sorry I missed last week, was all a bit busy and I didn’t want to drop links and run again. But what fantastic things I missed – those features look so good! And I love your bread too!

      I’ll try doing what you do. My process is reversed usually. I do the cooking and photo taking, then try to write the post based on the photos while trying to remember what I did! Obviously it’s not working out for me. Great to see you this week, Caroline! Have a nice weekend! ?

  7. Hi Angie! I totally understand the drag of writing down recipes. I cook pretty much every single day of the week and yet I find writing it out so difficult and too time consuming! I’ve thought about doing video too but watching other people on YouTube, my kitchen is definitely not up to par haha. Maybe one day…
    Hope you have a fabulous weekend! Happy Fiesta Friday!

    • Your bread looks beautiful, btw. My late grandfather was a big fan of sourdough and always kept a sourdough starter in the fridge πŸ™‚

      • Angie says:

        Thanks, Ai! It looks kinda flat in the pic but I actually got a great rise on that one! Should have taken a profile picture. I used up my last batch, but if I make more dry starter, I can send you some if you want ?

    • Angie says:

      I can’t even figure out how the video is taken. By someone else? Which I don’t have anybody to do that. Mounted camera? Too much planning for my little brain ?

  8. I will write the recipe but you have to send me the food. :)) Have a great weekend!

  9. Now that is just cruel for a bread baker Angie! That loaf is a thing of beauty! I know what you’re saying though sometimes the number of steps would have anyone running. How was the visit with the boy?

    • Angie says:

      I originally followed, and have since adapted, the Tartine method. You know, that famous bakery in SF? The steps are daunting and take 2/3 days to complete! I doubt many people would be interested! We had a GREAT time with the boy!! I needed it, and I think he did, too ?

    Your bread looks amazing, and I’m sure tastes as good. I agree that writing recipes can be the most difficult task, especially for things like sourdough loaves. I too have been using my trusty twinkle thanks to you and with great success. I still am unable to write down how I do it – if I stopped to measure and explain, I think I wouldn’t have the same amazing results. Maybe one day! Have a lovely weekend.

    • Angie says:

      I’m glad to hear it, Hilda! I’ve gotten so comfortable with sourdough making that I can just eyeball the ingredients these days. No measuring! But then it makes it harder for me to write the recipe ??

  11. Your bread looks amazing! I concur that the cooking is the easy part πŸ˜‰ Beautiful features as always. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy FF!

    hi Angie
    You use food to bring us all together for a fantastic party every week! I am gutted when I miss it and wish I had way more time to participate and mingle more, you are brilliant! The bread looks so good, would there be a slice left by any chance? πŸ™‚ Happy Weekend! x

    • Angie says:

      Aaw…you’re so sweet! It’s gratifying to hear that what you do brings joy to others. I’m glad you love partying with us, coz we sure LOVE having you!! And of course, there’s always bread for you ??

  13. This bread looking so amazing Angie. I wish I had the skills to get a sourdough starter going…not so good at bread making so thoroughly enjoying yours. That’s what this party is about πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Zeba! Sourdough bread is not really that hard to make, just needs patience since it rises slowly. Maybe I can post a tutorial one of these days.

  14. It’s good to be back! I’ve missed this party. I brought a soup and… a perfectly fiesta-themed Day of the Dead decoration. (What’s a party without a little decor, right?) πŸ™‚ Thanks for hosting! Amazing features this week.

  15. Oh Angie, you can’t share that photo of that gorgeous bread and not your recipe! Just mean! Haha!!

    Happy Friday, love xxx

    • Angie says:

      Haha, Michelle! It was just a tease, you know. And to make you drool even more, it’s got pumpkin and walnut in it…and then I sliced and toasted and buttered, mmm…mmm… ??

  16. Hi Angie, I know I’ve been out of action for awhile, but I just wanted to say what a great looking loaf that is! I bet it tasted great too! It looks like something I’d find at our local artisan bakery shop!

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Gerard!! I’m still learning though! Sometimes I get great loaves, other times not so much! Once I made something extraordinary! Better than Tartine bread! I’m not kidding; coz my MIL happened to visit and brought with her my fave Tartine walnut loaf. Guess what? Everybody wanted my bread! I wish I know what I did right, lol.

Talk to me, people!
