I've already baked that fougasse that I've been eyeing at Lizzy's ....
So as the chorizo and thyme rolls from bourke's street bakery book .....
Ha ! I wish ! I'm obviously dreaming ! lol
I had to store my 2 bottle of yeast in the fridge .
At the rate I'm procrastinating , I don't know when can I actually bake another yeasted bread pfffffttttt
But not too lazy to make some muffins ....
And these muffins will definitely perk you up !
As if drinking several cups of coffee a day are not enough .....
Uhm Some said that drinking coffee is good for your memory ! lol
Our flat smells like a coffee shop .
Coffee overload .
This easy recipe is a keeper .
For caffeine addict !
