"Cheezy" Crackers

Well, folks, Erica and I have reached a new low in terms of food photography motivation. All we have for you this time around is this spectacular shot. Why yes, that is a shark eating a goldfish. But of course!

Our lack of motivation might be explained by the general level of un-enthusiasm we felt toward this month's challenge. No offense to our delightful hosts, but making crackers wasn't quite daring enough the third time around. You see, we've already tested the limits of this skill set with the lavash (way back when we were 2Ls, interviewing for summer jobs!), and more recently with the crackers challenge just last July.

To make it a little more of a challenge (and to satisfy my month-long foray into vegan-ness), we decided to try our hand at some vegan baking, complete with nutritional yeast. To our delight, these crackers did approximate the not-so-vegan goldfish crackers we all know and love. However, when compared to the rest of the spread that Erica and I prepared for the super bowl (including Erica's Baltimore Berger Cookies and my Buffalo Girls), the crackers weren't the biggest hit.

So after nearly six years and over fifty challenges in the Daring Bakers community, Erica and I will be modifying our monthly baking just slightly. If the monthly challenge is something we're keen to try, we'll stick with the group - we hope this will be the case!! But if it's something we've done already or just aren't feeling challenged by, we'll pick a different recipe to share with our readers. I promise, both Erica and I have quite the stockpile of baking recipes to try! We hope you'll stick with us in this new phase of adventure....

Sarah from All Our Fingers in the Pie was our February 2013 Daring Bakers’ host and she challenges us to use our creativity in making our own Crisp Flatbreads and Crackers!
