    Glen and Friends cooking is the Chanel that I got my dough recipe. He does a good video on all sorts of cooking

    At 71 I am not sure if I am part of the Old timers crowd or the young section around here. Feel youngish.

    Pasta photo was rotated from horizontal format originally, rotated and scaled down using GIMP on this CEntOS 7 box. Camera is a Fuji. I s'pose a MAC O/S wants to ignore "added" file attributes.

    I'll try using GIMP on the original file and do an export as different format extensions. The .BMP export is further reduced in size to keep it under the upload limit.

    EDIT: The .bmp file will not resolve as a viewable image! Weird.

    OK doc now the pic is viewing correctly. For a while I wasn't sure that was you making the original post.... I figured it was an im-pasta.

    I enjoy cooking, it's one of the things I discovered when I got divorced.

    To add to your freshman "15"

    I have never made these before but they turned out well. Shared some with the neighbors.

    David - I've never even seen home-made hot cross buns. The ones in the stores have a white confectioners sugar icing on the top to form the cross.

    What did you use for the cross?

    Thanks.

    You pipe on a flour and water mix just before you bake them. Just put the mix in a plastic bag and cut a small hole in the corner.

    We had the last 2 warmed up for breakfast.
