First up, my first ever Jelly Roll, PBJ mind you! I found a recipe that goes as: 5 eggs 5 tablespoons flour 1 tablespoon constarch 4 tb sugar 1 tb honey 1 tsp salt. While I like the flavor, I feel texture could be improved.

Also, did not know how to prevent roll from sticking!
Second one, whilst oven was hot:
Simple whole wheat bread recipe:http://www.jennycancook.com/recipes/simple-whole-wheat-bread/

I messes around trying to cut slits but they didnt turn out so nice:

Critique is appreciated, suggestions welcomes, however limited to the following ingredients Whole wheat AP flour and AP flour, I live in Honduras, Central America, can't get fancy stuff like bread flour, pastry flour, vital wheat gluten, etc.

I bake a ton of cookies during the holidays. My wife did a lot of baking tears ago but sadly (for me) she no longer has the desire. Shame too because she made a great eclair.

I used to like baking as a kid.  Did so in 4H.  Not sure if many here knows what 4H is...google it  :p

 

I still bake from time to time but maybe once a year.  I don't like cooking in general...grilling, a diff story.

Wow! 4H, huh? My dad used to be a leader, or what ever they were called, when I was a kid. Does 4H still exist?

 

As far as baking, heck, I can barely boil water!! Thank goodness for micro waves!!

I like woodfire pizza.  I think of baking more along the lines of cakes, cookies, brownies....

Naw, I normally like to grill a good steak.  Or Salmon.  I got a good simple chicken marinade as well.  Of course, hamburgers are a given.
