Hello friends! It is Grayson once again. I’m back from OU for the break.

 

My first semester of college was incredible! I have learned so much, made some great friends, spent way too much time at a particular coffee shop, and have been exposed to so many amazing opportunities. I love school, and I cannot wait to see what next semester has in store. Although, It is nice to be home, for many reasons like spending time with family, seeing old friends, and... cooking! I am so grateful to have a full kitchen for an entire month. I miss y kitchen every single day at school. It is the most tragic thing about living in the dorms! Needless to say, I have been cooking and baking absolutely everything I can think to create. More specifically, I have been baking a lot of bread.

 

I adore bread. I’ve never been a girl to get on the whole “no carbs” diet, and I don’t think I ever will! I enjoy it way too much to ever give it up, and I think bread is a small pleasure in life. It brings me happiness, so who am I to deny myself it? Anyways, I ventured out of my usual no-knead boules and simple Dutch oven loaves of bread. They are delicious and full of flavor, but I was looking for a little bit of a challenge: baguettes!

 

They took two days to make, and let me tell you, they were worth it! They had a delightfully crispy crust and a soft and flavorful interior. Oui! Oui! It was a complicated process that can only get easier with time, but I will definitely be baking them again.

 

Speaking of all this bread, I am selling bread and other baked goods to help raise money for my trip to Italy. Did I not mention it before? *gasps* Yes! I am going to Italy this summer to study abroad. To say I am thrilled is the understatement of the year.

 

I think about it every single day. I think about how fortunate I am to have such a wonderful opportunity, and I also think about all the delicious pasta, art, and architecture I’ll be experiencing! If you’re interested in helping me out or placing an order, you can email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or just contact my mom! À La Grayson Bakery is ready for business! Oops, I have to go, my oven is beeping! I think my Roasted Garlic Artisan Bread is ready! Thanks for reading and helping my Italian dreams come true!

 

Ciao,

Grayson Wise
