I am on summer break and as a result I now have time to cook and bake. Needless to say I have been doing so. My parents get to enjoy what I make and the rest of my immediate family gets to drool when I send them pictures. Now it is your turn to drool. These are what I have made so far (baguettes excluded, because you already know about those).
Foccacia a pizza like thick bread.
Ciabatta an Italian white bread.
Tortellini a small Italian stuffed pasta (vidalia onion, ricotta and spinach) .
Sesame seed crusted, soy sauce based marinated salmon with a rissoto like treatment of brown rice and Israeli couscous, all topped with a sauce based on the marinade.
Blintz, stuffed with a potato, onion filling and also with the same vidalia, ricotta and spinach filling I used for the tortellini (I made these for Shavuot). And of course I did make my own crêpes.
Dessert. Lets start with the Cinnamon Buns.
Finishing up with the biggest chocolate layer cake I have ever made, six layers of cake and six layers of pastry cream (so 12 layers).
If you are drooling all over your keyboard then my job here is done.
