Promised an update with pictures yesterday so here they are.
First, the regular loaf of bread:
I used the recipe from this site. Next time I will be using a lower temperature then the one they recommended.
Finally the peanut butter cookies:
Recipe found here with the modifications suggested by reviewers (extra 1/2 cup of peanut butter and 1/2 cup of flour and a teaspoon of vanilla extract)
I really enjoy the baking process and it gives me a little bit to think things through and get some plotting done in my head.
So, I guess I should get back to writing and stuff. Until next time.
