Orange Buns

Friday, May 15, 2009

















After seeing so many bread making recipes in other peoples blog, i couldn’t help but be tempted about it. My saliva is overflowing and my hands is getting itchy.

However, i still have some reservations as i have never bake bread before. Plus, i don’t have a breadmaker, and that means that i have to do it by hand. It dampens my enthusiasm a bit.

But, as they say, you’ll never know if you never try. So, like the advertistment slogan, i went ahead and just do it!
