I’ve been so eager to try this bread, and I’m so glad I finally did! The reason I had put it off for so long is that the high extraction do-it-yourself-part had intimidated me. I don’t know why - it ended up being so easy to do, and so worth this 4 extra minutes that [...]

When Holly of Phemomenon asked for participants in her one-off foodie event, “Blogging for Babies - An Invitation for Little Wonders” I didn’t hesitate to say yes. This is an event to promote the March For Babies, which does amazing work in the way of improving the life quality of infants, both full term [...]

The difficultly level of this bread is marked as “advanced” in Maggie Glezer’s book. I took one look at that and thought, what the heck. I’ve got a bread class under my belt, and I just won’t take pictures of it if its inedible :).

It’s been a wonderful week but it must come to an end. Today is my last day at SFBI’s Artisan 1 Bread class, and I must say.. I’ve learned a ton! I can’t wait to go home and apply everything that I’ve learned, not to mention actually using my at-home equipment, which is so [...]

I was completely dumbfounded to see that someone (I don’t know her name, either!) had said that my blog was one that made their day - I mean, its not even a month old, and there’s hardly any content! But, nonetheless, I am totally honored, and thrilled, not to mention motivated to keep things [...]

You know the crust on really good restaurant bread that is so crunchy and crackly that it flakes into a ton of pieces when its cut, and is perfect to scoop up soup or sauce? That is this bread’s crust. This bread is so tasty and so fantastic - I wish you all could’ve tried [...]
