Cooking Escapades

Daddy's gonna be giving Rudy's, our favorite barbecue joint, a run for their money if he keeps cooking the way he did on Saturday. =) Daddy smoked a brisket in his new smoker he got for his birthday using the recipe that came with the smoker and it was very similar to the Rudy's Rub you can buy at the store. It was delicious! Mama made beans and creamed corn which are must have sides at Rudy's. =)

Our dear friend Mrs. Simons at gracelaced told us about this fantastic bread book called Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day. The idea is that there are several basic recipes for delicious breads that can be used for for all kinds of things. A basic dough is made up and put in a bucket and stored in the fridge. When you're ready to make the bread, you just take off a chunk and make it into the desired bread. The book has all the recipes and technics you could want to make them all. It is amazing all the simple ways these simple doughs can make delicious, professional loaves! We enjoyed some of this bread along with our smoked brisket.

Your loaves came out beautifully! And, I won't tell Mr. Simons about the smoked brisket. He'd flip.out.

Ooh, yummy! Everything looks so delicious. I would love the secret of that bread. I've been on the hunt for a good "different" bread. Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Uncle Chris, you can barbeque for me ANYTIME.

Love you all!
