Not a lot of reading got done this weekend.

Cuz I was busy making this:

Cinnamon Raisin Bread!

Cinnamon Raisin Bread!

And apparently the secret is rising the dough overnight in the fridge, and not using an entire egg and tons of butter in the cinnamon sugar mix. Blend the softened butter into the bread dough and then when you’re making the filling use just enough egg to dissolve the cinnamon sugar in.

also, this:

Lemon tart!

Lemon tart!

Note to self: next time you make the lemon tart filling,  beat the eggs before adding sugar  and lemon juice and zest. Otherwise you get those weird unmixed white bits. They still tasty delish, just look funny.

I ended up w/a  ton of unused egg whites.  mmmm…. egg white omelet for me!

meanwhile, I’m busy reading The Spirit Rebellion by Rachel Aaaron and Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon by Spider Robinson. Gotta be mixing my sf with my f, know what I mean? 😉  And in the meantime, I’m percolating a review of Melanie Rawn’s The Diviner. Although I could easily just say “omg, it was awesome!” over and over again until I hit 500 words.


So, what did you do this weekend?
