Nooks and Crannies

The recipe looked easy enough: Mix up the 4-ingredient dough in the evening and let it rise overnight. Stretch and fold it, give it a short rest, and then roll it out. A biscuit cutter and some cast iron skillets warming on the stove were the final pieces. Ease them onto the hot surface and griddle for seven minutes a side. 

"What are you doing?" Gary asked when he came downstairs this morning.

"I'm making English muffins!" I told him. 

He looked skeptical.

I shrugged. "We'll see."

Thirty minutes later? We were buttering our muffins. 

Fork split and toasted, they looked store-bought, but they were much crisper on the outside and tender on the inside than those. 

"These are outstanding," Gary declared.

I'd call that a success.


  1. Risk-taking at its finest. Climbing ladders, trying new recipes... can we just agree that you are one great DIL?!

  2. Success sounds delicious. Enjoy!

  3. A success— but he should have seen that coming! No reason fir skepticism when you’re in the kitchen.

  4. Yum! I recently bought some crumpet rings and have made English muffins with my sourdough discard.
