Thanks, but I really don't want to get into baking right now. The current kitchen doesn't lend itself to baking - and my messy way of baking. FWIW, I used to bake bread, make pasta, muffins, and the like, and enjoyed doing it. Did everything by hand, too - no stand mixers or electric mixers, or pasta machines. It was very enjoyable.
I'll never forget the first pasta I made, putting the egg into the well of flour, kneading by hand, rolling out the dough, and cutting it into strips, not all quite the same width. Very "rustic" but just as tasty as the pasta we made with machines. And kneading bread dough was such a pleasure, being at one with the ingredients. Alas, circumstances preclude all that now. :(
BTW, although I mentioned this privately, a public mention seems in order: you've got a nice blog site :)
