Global Warming! Coming soon to a kitchen near you!

Nothing warms a home like something baking.

It’s cold outside where you live.

Everyone should get busy!

Doesn’t matter if it’s a delicious batch of sour dough bread:

Been baking!
Been baking!

Doesn’t matter if it’s a few jars of wonderful canned bread:

Been baking
Been baking

Doesn’t matter if it’s a wonderful, lo-carb cookie recipe!

We all need to warm up our Monday!

  1. So sorry this post formatted so horrible. I think our friends at WordPress are still on winter vacation. Should improve, soon. In the meantime, I’ll try to contact them and see what anyone can do. 🙂 You were going to bake, anyway, right? 😉

  2. Cold weather and bread baking must be related. It’s ridiculously cold here, and my husband got the urge to bake bread yesterday (for the first time in about 3 years). So we went to the grocery store to pick up yeast and caraway seeds (probably shouldn’t have been traveling anywhere, but so be it). When we got home, he discovered we didn’t have molasses, which is, apparently, necessary for rye bread. So he made honey wheat instead. It was delicious with the split pea soup he also made. Soup — now THAT’S a cold-weather staple in my book!

  3. Made chicken soup and chocolate syrup tonight. I was going to add a nice loaf f bread and some snickerdoodles to the list, but the butter won’t soften, and I’m guessing the bread won’t rise either, our poor florida heater isn’t meant for this weather! Tomorrow I’ll have bread rising in the bedroom with the space heater!

    1. Hello, Emily! Thanks for this great comment! When my kitchen is not warm enough for softening butter or for bread-rising, I turn on my oven light and place those things in there. That little bulb is just enough. Or, sometimes I add a 9×13 pan of very hot water on the shelf below, which does great things for the crust. The people who built our house baked for the public, and built shelves in the top of the hot water tank closet for proofing bread. It’s warm there, too. 🙂
      Hope your bread turns out!
