Totally mellow bake-filled weekend….

…but I made the best bread I've ever made.  Tip I picked up from Cook's Illustrated – use honey, rather than sugar, to proof the yeast.  Also, here's what else seems to work for bread:  total neglect!  Let it rise not only multiple times, but for more than an hour while you're out at the farmers market.  The yeast gets Thanksgiving bloated and eats a bit more, but just stops after it has had its full.  

 Oh, I also made some cookies with one of my new fave ingredients – coconut.  Getting stoked to go to Hawaii soon to find and toast some fresh coconut that, because of my location shift, will actually be local.
