Because I need inspiration.
You know I do.
In an effort to reignite a spark, I've added a couple of new cookbooks to my kitchen counter. Let's hope they don't just sit there:
Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day (I already bake bread, and I already take a lot of shortcuts, but I want some confirmation and new ideas about the shortcuts from the pros.)
From a Monastery Kitchen
Twelve Months of Monastery Soups
If you have any extraordinarily inpsirational ideas, I'd love to hear them.
You might start with, "Karen, open the cookbooks."
To which I'll smugly reply, "That's how much you know. There just happens to be a huge batch of bread dough in my fridge right this very minute. So there."
I'll keep you posted. And I'll try to stop talking like a third grader.
