Okay, so I didn't make bread yesterday. I didn't even make a starter. But I did research the entire process, read through several baking sections of various cookbooks (James Beard on Bread! Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. II by Julia! The Gift of Southern Cooking by Scott Peacock and Miss Edna Lewis! ) and got sucked into thinking maybe what I really wanted to bake was fresh apple cake with caramel sauce. Except then I'd be forced to eat, like, all of it, and that would be bad. Right?

So today's the day. It's still rainy, I got lots of chores done yesterday (the household things that had been languishing unaccomplished while I scrambled together a revised manuscript), and now all I have to do today is write (no sweat!) and bake some damn bread. Seriously. And since my chores yesterday involved a trip to the grocery store to buy bread flour, I now have no excuse. We'll see how it goes.

In the meantime, Stinger has a new blog up. He's so excited about it, he posted like nine times yesterday. I told him he'd better keep it in his pants today or he'd run out of things to say. He assures me that won't be an issue. Check him out; the blog is full of technobabble, but there are some funny posts in there, too.


OMG Stinger has a blog! Whoot!

And please mail me some fresh bread. Please!

I have a really great bread recipe - super easy to make, too. I may send it to you.

If I was stranded on an island and could only have one food group with me it would be bread. That's a food group, right?
Stinger's blog is adorable. I love the little hat! But... married to a writer of dirty books? Who is he talking about?

Hmm, who could he mean...

The bread is in the cold oven, hopefully doubling in size! Kristen, your easy no-knead bread looks amazing. Next time!

You always make me want to be a better cook. I'm so blah in the kitchen. Off to check out Stinger! And to buy some bread later:)

Hello -
I am a filmmaker in Atlanta. I just wanted to let you know I produced a 21 minute documentary about Miss Edna Lewis. The film is called "Fried Chicken and Sweet Potato Pie".

It is viewable in its entirety on Internet at a Gourmet Magazine website:

and at a Georgia Public Broadcasting website:

My website, has more information about the film and the story of Miss Lewis.
