(poem) - Wearing Black while Baking Bread

Is there anything better
Than wearing black
And being covered by flour?

Cooking is so much fun
Baking is as well
Watching bread rise, hour after hour.

Mix everything together
Add the right about of spice
And suddenly an amazing flavor comes together

I never realized
It could be so much fun
Cooking in the kitchen with her

My wife and I
Make a great team
Doing everything together, time after time

When it comes down to creating
We make the best of teams
As we write a story, line after line

But together in the kitchen
Kneading out the dough
We make the most amazing things

With flavors so astounding
We are reminded
Of why we gave each other rings

Food nourishes the body
Enhances life itself
Especially with the right flavors

Our love nourishes our soul
Mix in the spices of our life
And our marriage resonates with a purr

So, in the end
Cooking food together
Sums up our love

Add just the right mixture
Makes all the flavors of life
Soar so high above.

The Joy of Homemade Bread

There’s something wonderful about doing nice things for people that could use some nice things done for them.  Recently, I started making my bread homemade by hand.  It tastes better, lasts longer, and is just plain awesome when you get down to it.  Especially considering how honestly easy it is to make....

Cooking and baking are crazy little things, so many things can go wrong, and frankly people are just afraid or lazy about the prospect.  I don’t really blame them, I’ve always been kind of scared to make my own bread, when its already decently cheap from the store.  I guess that changed when I first ate at Panera Bread.

The Great Pizza Experiment

The first time I ever tried a homemade pizza, at least the first one I remember, wasn’t that good.  I don’t remember much about it, just that it was pretty awful.  From then on, as I kept seeing how cheap pizzas were, I never understood why someone would go through the trouble to make one at home when they were so cheap.

But then came the Indian Commodities, and tons of flour.  And I mean OMG amounts of flour.  Making my own bread was the first obvious step.  And wow, what a step.  Making bread was far simpler than I had imagined, and there are billions of different recipes online.  After finding out which exact recipe I loved, and what made the other recipes not so good, I wondered what I’d make next.
