    YOU GUUUUYYYSS, I made this for dinner.

    Slow-Cooker Moroccan Chicken, Chickpea, and Apricot Tagine | A Hint of Honey

    If you like Moroccan food, try this. It's so easy, and so good. My kitchen smells like Marrakech. (I assume.)

    This was dinner this evening. A salad of poached lobster, avocado, ruby grapefruit, bacon, toasted almonds, shallot, chives, Boston butter lettuce, and frisée with a champagne vinaigrette.

    Good luck! I'm sure it will come out great. But, don't be discouraged if it's not perfect the first time. Bread baking is a trial and error kind of thing. So many variables from kitchen to kitchen.

    Which kind of yeast did you end up using? I saw your pin about substituting.

    Update: the dough barely rose in like three hours, and it's 11pm, so I threw it out. No bread for EJ.

    Substituted active dry yeast (which I had) for instant yeast (which I didn't). Let it sit in warm water for a bit beforehand, to make up for the fact that it wasn't instant -- most likely should have had that step last for MUCH longer. Overnight, maybe.

    And from recipe to recipe!

    Next time I'm using a recipe that actually calls for the things that I use

    No, I wouldn't leave it for longer than 10 minutes. Did you put sugar in the water? It needs food. I generally stir some sugar into the water and sprinkle a bit on top. Approximately what temperature was the room where the dough was supposed to rise?

    The instructions didn't say to add sugar, so I didn't. :/

    Room temperature was approx. 76 degrees?

    Interesting. All my recipes proof with sugar. I generally prefer to use Instant/Highly Active yeast though, more reliable.

    I generally let mine rise covered with a clean towel, in a turned off oven with a pot of boiling water in it. That way all the steamy warmth gets trapped inside the oven and the yeast gets happy.

    I made this, and it was amazing.

    Had to make a couple substitutions based on what I had on hand and on the availability at the grocery section of my local target superstore, but I fortunately had the unsweetened shredded coconut, and I have to say that toasted coconut with garlic is a miraculous combination that everyone should try at least once in their lives (and then they'll probably wanna eat it many more times subsequently).

    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    A spaghetti meat sauce from an allegedly authentic Italian recipe. Very flavorful, but a bit too much olive oil for my taste; made 3 quarts of it just because I didn't want to do math.
    If bees did go extinct, we could always hire people to dress up as bees and pollinate flowers with tiny feather dusters. Sure it'd be more expensive, but there are also millions of idle teens.
