The best way I can think of to start a new blog is to share my good news! After working on a new recipe for over two years, I finally submitted my very first entries to the fair! My Whole Barley Sandwich Bread won a blue ribbon and best of class award (everyone always begs me for a loaf of this bread!). I just want to share it with the world:
I actually already have as it is on recipezaar: Whole Barley Sandwich Bread
If you can stand my looooong explanations that I made for someone who was new to breadbaking, try the video series:
Anyway, I also entered my Strawberry Tres Leche Cake which is very good but I took a chance and used a baked meringue topping for drama- and I am not sure that the judges were thrilled as it only took 3rd place (like I should be complaining…).
This was my first year with fair entries. I am already plotting ahead for next year- I can’t wait!
