French Baguette Recipe plus Baked Macaroni
Apr 10th, 2015 by niceyfemme

This is the better recipe I tested. Been wanting to use my Kitchenaid mixer and baguette is what I’ve been craving to eat recently. This recipe produces a baguette that has a chewy inside and a crunchy crust.

My bad that I forgot to take pictures after it was baked.

I thought this will go well with Baked Macaroni.

Found this recipe on Allrecipes.com but forgot which one. And I adjusted the recipe a bit, like added more flour, added some dried herbs for flavors I prefer. If you prefer a more plain taste then don’t add the herbs.

French Baguette

1 cup lukewarm water (110F)

3 cups bread flour

4 T sugar (I added more as prefer a bit of sweetness)

1 t. salt

1 1/2 t. instant yeast

1 egg white

1. Add the water in the mixer bowl and add half of the sugar mix then add the yeast to activate. Wait for 10 minutes until the mixture becomes bubbly.

2. In speed 2, add the flour to the bowl. Once it turns into a ball of dough sprinkle the salt and keep on kneading until the dough is smooth.

3. Oil the bowl and roll your dough on it to coat with oil. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about an hour.

4. Roll the dough into a rectangle until the dough is very thin. Cut in half then jelly roll it and seal the seams. Do the same with the other half of the dough. Brush with beaten egg whites.

5. Cut at an angle, not too deep. Cover. Let rise until doubled about 40 minutes.

6. Bake in 390F for 20 minutes. You can spray some water while baking for crunchier crusts.

Done!

 

Unbaked Baked Macaroni
Jul 22nd, 2012 by niceyfemme

I can’t find my words recently. To be honest I don’t know what to call this dish. This is just like Filipino Spaghetti only I used macaroni instead of spaghetti. I was going to bake it but was too hungry to I just went ahead and ate it as is. We Filipinos immediately think of Baked Macaroni when we see macaroni shells in red sauce hence the title I gave this dish slash post.

With toasted garlic bread. Way too much butter but I like to indulge in this stage of my pregnancy. Haha i’m using the pregnancy excuse I should be ashamed… 😉 But really cut me some slack people (yes I am talking to myself) this pregnancy caught me off guard in a way that I didn’t expect it to be so hard for me. So indulging is good.. it keeps me sane. 🙂

And with a dish as good as this, we women will not need to be stunningly pretty, we will look gorgeous to the people whom we served this to and will smell good to them like we have pink sugar perfume on even though in reality we smell like roasted garlic haha.
