Remembering just how much I love having a Christmas tree up in my house. Explains why I usually don't take it down until February. ShhhhhhDiscovering the bulk-foods section at WinCo Foods. By far the best selection of bulk I've ever shopped. I'm obsessed with the fresh honey-equipped with real live bees inside. It's open 24 hours, which means I have access to giant lemon heads anytime I fancy.Baking Jim Lahey's no-knead bread and let me tell you, it really is as easy as they say. And not easy in the same way that cake pops are easy. This is fool proof. I've always been scared of breads and yeast, but this recipe has given me the confidence to keep trying. Gorgeous no?Ordering from The Community Food Co-op of Utah. We put in our first order in November and were blown away with the quality and overall value of the food we received. Totally worth it. And we are looking forward to round two this month.Mourning (still) the loss of a box which disappeared 4.5+ years ago when we last moved. Contains the best of my kitchen wedding gifts. Including, but not limited to, all of my bake-ware: items that I haven't yet been able to replace because I'm just sure it will turn up sometime. Reading Cormac McCarthy's The Road. Actually we just finished, and both of us absolutely loved this book. Somewhat chilling and really dark and twisty. I kind of have a thing for dark and twisty though. Nevertheless, highly recommended. The new movie looks good too. Chuckling at the LG Give it a Ponder beard campaign. These videos are killing me.

1. Love your tree and it's even more beautiful and happy in real life.
2. Still haven't been. can't wait.
3. I can't believe how beautiful that bread is. I've been studying the recipe and trying to get up the guts to attempt it.
4. Thanks for the heads up on the book. It's on my "list".
5. Funny.

Lastly -- XOXO.

I also have a recipe for no-knead bread, does yours start the night before? It is so simple all you have to have is time. We have a store kind of like WinCo called Wegmens, but the fresh honey and raw peanut butter they sell scare me, especially the peanut butter.

Cathy, yes you let the dough sit for up to 18 hours. But considering it takes all of five minutes to do everything else, it's a no-brainer. And I have YET to screw it up. Which is big. Huge.
