Baking Chez Moi: Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere

I’m going to start this again and now start following the book Chez Moi…now i just need to order my copy.



Having never made Irish Soda Bread before, was looking forward to baking this one.  It’s a very easy bread, I used all-purpose flour and the ever smelly Buttermilk. I mixed it all by hand and use a glass pie dish to bake it.

Before it went into the oven

 After it come out of the oven

It’s a great bread with tea, which I had the day after St. Paddy’s Day. I made it just like the receipt said, and didn’t add anything to it and still enjoyed it very much.

So if you would like to make your own Irish Soda Bread remember it not just for St Paddy’s Day you can find the recipe at the following Host sites

The last time I made bread

was in the 4thgrade

during our unit on Indiana History.

We all made bread in the school’s cafeteria.

I still remember the smell of the bread


getting to take a piece of bread home.

So fast forward 40 years,

 my first ever loafs of bread.

  I got the book from a co-worker until

  I get mine next week

  I read it twice and

started on my first ever bread making

which was kinda fun

  I used my Kitchen Aid Mixer

and it  did all the work,

thinking next time

I might

knead  it by hand

to get a good arm workout in.

One loaf was bigger then the other,


still need to find

the perfect place to rise the dough

Anyone have any helpful tips

where to place the bread to rise better?

The bread did  tasted wonderful


made  a killer grilled cheese sandwich
