Behold the loaf


More progress on the sourdough front. Ended up doing a dough-drop at my uncle’s


Went to Tartine and got a big loaf of crusty country bread.


I feel like I am the god of improvised baking. Did you know that the mysterious empty jam jar in your AirBNB kitchen cupboard is exactly a cup? Did you know that ikea glasses make excellent cookie-cutters?

I'm away interning in SF for three months: too short a time to really get build up the comforts of home. Life can be kind-of spartan without them, so I try to make small changes. Maybe get a tea-pot, maybe do some baking. This time I made and froze 55 scones.
