Hello my lovelies! Who knew I’d be handing out advice on gifts. I’m fairly careful to make sure that I clearly signal any food related gifts that I actually want or need. I have been given some terrible cookbooks by well-meaning folks in the past. So this advice is to be used in conjunction with a little snooping or subtle questioning to make sure you’re on the right track and not doubling up on items already owned. These are all things that I use regularly and love and recommend for good bread baking at home. They vary in spendy-ness so there is something for everyone in there. To be fair I don’t yet own the last item. But I’ll take donations… Or obviously put this list out as a hint if you are after some great tools to help with your bread making! The estimated prices are in NZD. These are all things that can be picked up in stores or online (with the exception of the second hand books which need a bit of online digging).
Hello my lovelies! A quick update today. Still a bit under the weather. As is my oven! I’ve been testing a few different things. I’ve been planning some excellent Christmas recipes. I’m working on a gift guide for bread bakers. And I’m getting organised to save my sanity.
Hello my lovelies! It’s been a busy week. I talked to a group of women about GBB. It was a stressful bit of personal growth. I’ve been working on things for printers and learning a lot. And I have been identifying the reasons for my recent funk.
Hello my lovelies! The weather has taken a turn for the warmer. My second go at getting new sage and oregano sprouted has been a success. I have a pile of rhubarb to devour. I’ve been roaming round ancient Egypt. And it’s Halloween tomorrow.
Hello my lovelies! This week I discovered a new podcast. About bread. I finally found my favourite instant ramen. I chose my Christmas theme. And I battled polenta chips.
Hello my lovelies! This week just gone was Mental Health Awareness Week here in NZ. I had a little wobble and am proud of my response. I watched some horrors on Friday the 13th. I experimented making beeswax food wraps. And I got a surprise gift.
Hello my lovelies! It’s not the nicest spring day out there. But we can cheer ourselves with something nice to eat and the company of friends. Today’s picture is a memory of sunnier days. This week I eased back into things after my holiday. I taught my second bread class. I resisted the call of cake and then finally gave in. And I’ve started planning for Christmas. Don’t be grinchy. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Or so I’ve heard.
