There is much to say about slow breakfasts, the kind where you take the time to construct a composed morning bite that is brimming with the inspiration of the season. There is even more to be said for ones that can be made in parts ahead of time and assembled at whim to recreate the feeling of slow inspired living.
Today's breakfast ideas are of the latter. Components made as you will and then layered the morning of for a spectacular indulgence in self! :) Read More
A quick shout out to everyone who helped choose the cover image for this post. I had sent out a request to all email subscribers (if you aren't on the list, you can sign up on the right) last week to vote on whether they preferred the shot of this gorgeous boule on a dark background or light. Light was the overwhelming choice and here it graces the beginning of the post!! Thank you guys!
As you can imagine, for me the act of asking was more than just about this picture. It was as much to get an understanding of what you as readers were feeling, as also about learning to take feedback on my work. The truth is I preferred the dark one because of the high notes of contrast and how much it stood out. Also, I love pairing brown with black and just showing how glorious brown can be. Read More
This loaf is a variation of a flavor version I had made earlier. As it is made with 100% bean flour, I lightened it with buttermilk to add airiness and make it not so dense.

It is really good toasted with a little salted butter and piled with scrambled eggs. Plus it takes all of 30 minutes from start to finish! Read More
