What Have I Been Doing This Week You Ask . . .

Why I’ve been baking up a storm!

Not only is this Holga Week 2014, but for me it’s also been “Baking Week.”

I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies:

I bought a bunch of peaches to make peach jam (another kitchen adventure this week) and had enough leftover to make a peach pie. My Mom is THE BEST pie maker (and chocolate chip cookie maker, too) and this is the closest I’ve ever come to matching hers. It was really, really good.

I recently bought a gorgeous red Emile Henry Dutch oven from King Arthur Flour to bake my sourdough bread in. Today was my first attempt at using it. I have to say I’m VERY happy with the way the loaf turned out. Crusty and crunchy on the outside, soft and delicate on the inside, with a mild sourdough tang.

Oh, and I’ve been taking lots of photos with my Holgas, too. You know, for Holga Week 2014!
