    I can't open the PDF for some reason, so I took a stab at fixing it.

    Hello! I introduced myself here probably 6 weeks + ago, but we just moved and I have been super busy. The new house is more or less put together, so I baked bread tonight. I haven't made any in ages, but it turned out great. A few months ago, I must have bought a bum jar of yeast. After three failed attempts at this well used recipe, I got discouraged and gave up for a while. Just bought some new yeast packets, and now I am good to go!

    It is the most simple recipe, no kneading, and the dough gets rolled out flat and then rolled up like a jelly roll before a last 30 minute rise (pretty sure I saw the same recipe posted on this thread, but I can post it if anyone is interested). Before I did the jelly-roll part, I sprinkled on some salt, fresh ground pepper, dried basil and oregano, parmesan cheese, and a tiny touch of garlic powder. I had some with butter (quality control, you know), and it was so tasty. Tomorrow, we will use it for tuna melts with sharp cheddar for lunch.

    I was in a baking mood, so I made some dog biscuits, too. Beef flavored, but I did it the lazy way and used some Better Than Bouillion for the flavoring. The dogs don't seem to mind my laziness, though.[​IMG]

    Edit: Recently, my husband has been making noise about how much he loves beef stroganoff, so I will definitely have to try out one of the above recipes. It's not my favorite meal, but he will be ever so pleased.

    @ronott1 , thank you for the stroganoff recipe! It doesn't look too hard, I'll give it a try next week for DH's b-day and let you know how it turns out. Might not post a picture though, stroganoff photos just aren't that pretty, lol.

    @happy-bird

    I would love to see the no-knead bread recipe.

    Also, would like to hear how you do the tuna melts.

    Glad you are back on-line.


    @NorthFLChick

    Good luck on the Stroganoff….but IMO it will be easier than the things you bake.
