At least some of the Bread Baking Babes….
Our Dauntless Dozen of Beautiful Baking Babes are realizing that life has a way of interfering with the best of intentions. The result being that not everyone manages to spend quality time with their dough every month.
For me, sometimes it's the inability to get the ingredients. In a country with over 33,000 boulangeries or bread shops, home-baking is somewhat less than a cottage industry. But, also, because of mon mari's lack of a pancreas and resulting Type 1 diabetes, devouring fresh bread, slathered with butter, fresh from the oven is not something he can do.
So…. I'll bake when I can, eat what I can and when I can't I'll live vicariously through the Babes That Can.
This month Lien from Nottie Van Lien was our host kitchen.
Her bread was 'Korni', a wonderful looking (and sounding) bread, full of seeds and grains: flax seeds, millet, caraway and dried soy beans.
It makes a lovely, large loaf…. One that mon mari and I would have happily polished off in no time two years ago.
Lien has the recipe for you if your interested in trying your hand at this gorgeous loaf. Buddy posting date is the 29th.
But for now….. live vicariously with me:
Aren't they all gorgeous? And the bread looks pretty good, too!
Go – read and drool.

And for those who are wondering if our house has turned into an ark to handle all the rain….
While we are very, very wet and very, very sick of all the rain, we are not in an area that has been flooded. The Lot et Garonne is rolling hills, farm country so we are not subjected to all the run off waters they get in the south. We are subjected to boot-sucking mud, which we have lots of at the moment.
