A Babe in the house is a well-spring of pleasure, a messenger of peace and love,
a resting place for innocence on earth, a link between angels and man.
Don’t worry your little head with this, ma Kiki!
So when I was recently called Babe by a group of friends and fellow bloggers, well knock me down with a feather I was absolutely thrilled! The Bread Baking Babes is, as the name implies, a group of a dozen passionate bakers dedicated to all things yeast. Each month a recipe is selected by the Host Kitchen of the Month (or shall we say Hostess?) and we bake along. The 16th of the month finds the recipe with the results on our blogs and then anyone is free to bake the same and earn the honor of being a Bread Baking Buddy, badge and all. I’ve been a Buddy a few times in the past – from the Pesto Parmesan Pine Nut Russian Rose Loaf to the Apple Kuchen, from the 5-Grain Bread with Walnuts to the Asparagus Bread and have loved baking with like-minded women, a virtual Koffee Klatch, sharing recipes, cups of coffee and gossip alongside the sharing of a great new recipe and baking tips.
