Honestly the ciabatta experiment never really took off. The first attempt, while not perfect, was completely acceptable. And figuring out where to improve proved difficult.

Flirted briefly with tortillas. Again, first one came out pretty good - better than store bought.

The new hotness is danish (and maybe ideally croissants). The boys love danish, though rarely have it. And it seems like an impressive baking achievement. I have already tried to make croissants twice. Both abject failures. Not like, "well, it ain't pretty, but it's tasty" failures. Not like, "something is a little off" failures. Just complete fails. Terrible heavy lumps of inedible dough in pools of melted butter. Grotesque mockeries of croissants. It's time to figure out laminated dough.
