What to post or whether to post anything at all is, no doubt, a conundrum common to all bloggers.

Or … More Savory Banana/Butternut Squash Bread
I don’t usually eat much if anything for supper. If I do it is just a few nuts early in the evening. Well, last night Faye made this fabulous Curry Leaf Bread by Monica Bhide of Modern Spice. I won’t publish the recipe she used here but you can find it at the above link. … More Curry Leaf Bread

Meanwhile… Have you ever gone to any lengths to ensure, sneakily or by fisticuffs, that you were the one to get the crust or … More The Best Or Worst Part Of A Loaf Of Bread?
