A sweet, braided bread has been on my holiday baking list for years, but I never get around to making one. The Tuesdays with Dorie baking group is an excellent motivator for finally making braided bread for the holidays. Braided breads just look so festive!

I’ve never made popovers before, and these little guys were so much fun to make. What a simple recipe too. When I took them out of the oven it looked like 8 abstract sculptures sitting in ceramic cups. Golden, with a light crispness on the outside and soft and tender on the inside, and not too gooey at all.

Berry Galette

This is a keeper.  I used yogurt in the dough and it came out beautifully — tender, flakey, and easy to work.  I did not use quite all of the yogurt/water mixture, and probably could have left out even another tablespoon.  For the berries I used a combination of red raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries.  I went lighter on the blackberries, as they were quite tart.  The raspberries and blueberries were delightfully sweet.  In the end the galette had a perfect sweet-tart combination.  Plus, I had no leaking.  I’ve had galettes leak in the past, so I made sure to keep my dough to one-eighth inch thickness at a minimum.
