My new attempt of making cinnamon swirl bread is in the freezer. Wont know how they turned out till Thursday.

I've done a lot of searching for bread related stuff on line in the past week. More information about the hows, whys and what went wrongs than any sane person would ever need. I love the web.

Here's something different for breadheads. Now you can learn and eat history.
The SCFY channel put out lots of really bad shows in the 90's. Glad you were able to find the one you were searching for.
I found it ! another friend figured it out its

Space Rangers

one of those shows thats so bad its good

Link for those curious

Thanks :)
Doesn't sound like FarScape. Not a big TV person, but it sounds interesting.
I have a memory of watching a sci fi either film or tv show back in the 90s  (maybe 00s) on the sci fi channel.

All i can really remember is it was on some sort of space station, a new guy is getting introduced to his new team.

One member is a tall (alien?) who looks angry and I think hits the wall next to the new guy when the leader shows up

and says something like "and he wasn't even wearing his collar". He is then handed a collar which he puts on

The female team member is found somewhere else and I think she was doing some kind of martial arts computer game against someone and people were betting on it?

I think she and her opponent were on like pedestals on either end of a pit and in the pit were virtual versions of them and they were doing kicks on their platforms and their avatars were doing the moves.
and people were betting on it?

I know this is kinda vague (and its not any of the big ones like stargate or farscape etc etc).

any help is apriciated!!!

My first ever attempt at making cinnamon swirl bread. The bread itself is great. The swirl is more like a question mark.  :D  What I did was roll the dough out to about 3/4 of an inch. Slathered on the cinnamon mix and roll it back up. What I ended up with is lots of well risen bread will a bit of a swirl.  What I'll do today is make another batch of dough. Roll this batch out thin.  Slather on the cinnamon mix and have a bread with a real spiral. 

What happened to my first attempt was I forgot about the dough expanding. So when the 3/4 inch thick roll was done there was a good inch and a half of bread separating the cinnamon.  It still has a great flavor. More like an adult version of a cinnamon bun. Not overly sweet. Rolling the dough out thinner will allow for more cinnamon and sugar and a sweeter bread.

Some bread experiments I'm going to try.  I'm going to replace a cup or two of the bread flour with different grains to get different flavors. I've got barley flour. Will have to travel east to get wheat and rye. My idea is to use these flours when making free formed breads. Those big round, oblong and braided loaves. That way they wont just be cool looking white bread. 

I've done some looking around on line. The good news is other people have tried this with great results. I've learned that I can replace up to 25% of the total bread flour with non gluten forming grains. And up to 50% when using whole wheat flour. AWESOME!

The second frozen then thawed loaf. Really good! Same great taste and texture. The crust is a bit more flaky but doesn't in anyway take away from the bread.

Made four more loaves today. All four from my modified Shaker recipe. Two loaves I rolled out and make cinnamon swirl bread. Turned out really good.

Because I modified the recipe I can now call it my own.

Rat Bread.

1 package dry yeast.
1 1/4 cup warm water.
1 cup warm milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons shortening. At room temperature. 
Up to 7 cups bread flour.  I only use 6 1/2 but your conditions may very.

Two bread loaf pans well oiled. your choice. I use olive oil but any cooking oil will do.

In a bowel or stand up mixer. Add your warm water, sugar and yeast. Add one cup of the bread flour. Mix and lest stand for up to 10 minutes. Add milk and shortening. Stir or mix well. Add salt. Add remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time.
Knead for a good 8 to 10 minutes on a floured surface. Dough should stretch when pulled and be smooth to the touch.
Grease a large bowel. Place dough ball in bowel. Turning it to get the oil on the top of the ball as well.
Cover bowel with plastic wrap and let dough sit and rise for 1 hour.
After 1 hour deflate the dough. Knead a few times to get all the gasses out. Divide dough into two equal portions. Knead and press dough to fit bottom of bread pans.
Cover pans with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour.
Twenty minutes before the final rise is done pre heat your oven to 350.
Bake for 40 minutes
Cool out of pans on a bakers rack or heavy towel. You can tell the bread is done by tapping the bottom of the loaf. If it sounds hollow it's good. If not place back in pans and cook for another 5 minutes. Try again.
Let cool for a good 2 hours before slicing with a serrated knife.

I pretty much like everything in the poll except for caramel and butterscotch toppings, and chopped nuts. I also pretty much stick to only chocolate, vanillia, or strawberry ice cream. Mint or mint chocolate chip might be ok, but I very rarely ever have it.
