Re: The Smells in My Kitchen

Is it over-rising on the counter? If you know the yeast is good, I'd try cutting the rise time down some. Sometimes I forget about my dough and it rises too much. It usually deflates a bit in the oven when that happens.

I agree, it sounds like the money would be welcome and helpful, but is not 100% NEEDED. As in, you can manage food, shelter, clothing, etc in your current situation (this is just my assumption).

Also, sorry for the bruise on the right shoulder. The AR-15 had less recoil than I was expecting, but it was enough.
