Daring Bakers October Challenge in memory of Sherry “Sher” Cermak

This month's challenge has a little bit of sadness attached to it... we lost a Daring Baker... but wherever you are Sher, thank you so much for leaving us with this amazing challenge and thank you Rosa for making everything possible, this has been an amazing challenge!!

By now... you are probably asking yourself well.. what is this challenge you keep talking about?!!... WELL... BAKE YOUR PIZZA LIKE A REAL PIZZAIOLO.. and I did like a real pizzaiolo!!!

The dough is not hard at all to make, you can visit Rosa's Yummy Yums for the recipe... you start it one day ahead and then you get this amazing wonderfully malleable dough, I had no trouble with it whatsoever it was just delightful to work with ( I did make a little adjustment though, I traded one cup of all purpose flour for 1 cup of whole wheat flour).

When the time came to stretch the pizza... I was a little bit nervous but got the hang of it pretty quickly and had a lot of fun with it ^_^ ... although I might have ended with a lot of flour over me

One pizza was a bruschettta pizza with pesto as a base, tomatoes, red onions, fresh basil, oregano, feta cheese and mozzarella and the second one was pesto base, prosciutto, red onion, tomatoes, feta, fontina and mozzarella cheese.. they were both incredibly gooood!!!

Oh once again... belonging to the Daring Bakers pays off.. looove making my own pizza like a real pizzaiolo... maybe I missed my calling have you? you can visit all the other Daring Bakers and find out what they did

Let the celebration begin!!

For a couple of years now I've been planning my 25th birthday party..

I don't think it will turn out as fabulous as I had planned and expected, it won't have a Marie Antoinette's theme... there won't be at least 3 cakes and champagne drinking until dawn .. but I might do that for my 30th birthday

..this year I've decided to extend my birthday celebration over a week!!! and make fabulous with a coconut cake ... oh this is going to be an exciting week ^_^

Yes.. I am SICK.. I have cold >_<

Bad Monsieur Josh got sick on Friday and I took care of him during the weekend and I thought I had dodge the bullet that I would not get sick.. but NOOOO yesterday I woke up and my throat was all scratchy and my head wanted to explode and I felt sooo weak so I am SICK.

I've been trying to drink lots of liquids and sleep a lot and had some chicken noodle soup and garlic bread.. however if you have any other remedies that you would like to throw my way pleeease feel free because I don't want to be sick anymore /cough

I feel like a little twig and at any moment I am going to break, I hate being sick and all vulnerable and I despise it when my throat hurts and I can't even swallow... that's the worse, however having time to cuddle and sleep is good... bah I need to go get myself some chamomile tea, I hope you are all HEALTHY and HAPPY!
