Book Review: Einkorn by Carla Bartolucci

I thought this book might me a bit of a gimmick. An entire book based on one type of flour? Seriously? After reading the introduction, and hearing the author’s story of how she came to embrace using this grain, I can’t entirely discount it. I am lucky in that, as far as I am aware, […]

Book Review: Bread and Butter by Erin McKenna

A few weeks ago we went to Florida with some friends. On our last day we had run out of regular bread, so had to eat some of my friend’s Gluten Free bread. I now feel the pain of Gluten Free bread. It is a tragic thing. So for my next book to review I […]

The Great Sourdough Experiment.

I love sourdough. This little experiment came about because of two things. Number 1: I had to leave my sourdough starter behind in the UK. The US are pretty strict on what you can bring into the country, no fruits or veggies, etc. and so sourdough cultures are pretty much a no. Number 2: It […]

Grävling (the Swedish badger) gets some Pyjamas.

This little project started from something silly. Such a silly story that I’m not sure why I am telling you.

Chocolate, Raisin, and Cinnamon Bread.

Yep. Another bread recipe. I can’t help it. I don’t trust this oven much with anything else, although I may have to bite the bullet and make my Christmas cake as time is really ticking away now! I was sort of hoping to wait until we move, as the new place has an electric oven, […]

Raisin and Fennel Bread

My husband is awesome. He got back from Texas on Thursday night (a long saga of delays and diversions which lead to me having to drive to SFO at midnight), and now my laptop is now back working again! Hurrah! It was a bit touch and go, I thought it might be beyond saving, which […]
