Homemade Sourdough Raisin Brioche

Christmas is 8 sleeps away! I was trying to make a Christmas bread using sourdough levain and this was how this recipe came about. But I was hesitant to go all out, as it required me to use different kinds of dried fruits and candied citrus which I am not willing to forgo if the bake did not turn out right. After all, it is my first try in making a panettone.

Seeded Spelt Sourdough Boule

I'm incorporating an ancient grain into my bake today. Spelt, Triticum spelta, is a hardier and more nutritious grain compared to the modern wheat.

Homemade Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate brings back good memories of winters spent on the snow covered Mount Hood, Oregon. Snow covered slopes filled with lots of thrill seeking skiers.

Time flew by when we played in the snow but nature never failed to remind us the cold that created the wintry scene. We would unwillingly huddle into Timberline Lodge to sip pipping hot cups of chocolate and enjoyed the wintry scene around us through the huge wooden framed windows of the lodge.
