The Baking Bug is growing stronger on me, despite the twice-weekly morning breakfast loaves, pizza dough as kitchen gift for friends and the compulsory teacakes for weekend. Lately just as the weather becomes more unpredictable and the viral bug is taking precedence of daily lives, our diet automatically steer towards comfort food- oxtail soup on repeat and plenty of nutritious breads.
I am a soup person. I am also glad that the better half craves for soup so often, it feels so good to bring out my big pot and let whatever flavour that we fancy to simmer slowly on the stove as we carry on with our chores, and secretly hoping that lunch time is pronto. But when you make soups, you need to make something by the side too, and these days normal bread just don't cut it anymore. Weekend meals usually equal to something fancier, a fare extraordinaire to impress the loved ones. Having said that, sometimes I don't fancy the idea of toiling away in the kitchen so I use 'shortcuts'..!
