I got myself this fancy template a little while back, a fancy layout for my fancy, fancy, pompous drivel.
It seems I don't know how to pick classy company, as they've run out of bandwidth for certain elements on this page.
Embarrassing to say the least.
It's my intent to work on that, but I have Buttermilk-Lemon Sherbet coming up this evening in the kitchen, and I've been trying to master the vagaries of pulled pork in the oven (I am thinking of calling it Semi-lina Barbecue, I'll explain that later...) So I've been busy.
And I'm sorry.
And I know one should never begin sentences with "and" except when one should.
In the midst of all of this, and job hunting, I vow to maybe think about considering the following "action items":
1) New template
2) Adding pictures (iphoto makes my life living hell, I just haven't gotten ambitious here... and to make things worse, while I'm an adequate hack/hobby photographer, I can't seem to get he porn-ish shots that I see elsewhere. Life is a humbling experience.)
3) More updates... though this is a bit like apologizing to a diary for not writing more often. It is, sadly, true that I have little else important going in my life.
Finally, ice cream experiences are coming... I'm on a kick of making ice cream, and am intending to start on Peter Reinhart's "Breadbaker's Apprentice" in the near future. I am loath to include specific recipes from either, as (a la carolcookskeller.blogspot.com) I feel like they are both such tremendous resources that if you want them, you really really really should own them.
So. If you want to make the best bread of your life, buy this.
If you want to make ice cream, buy this.
You know whether you want them or not, and I'll share the experience with you as I do the occasional bit/piece/recipe from them.
If a recipe is one that I've significantly messed about with, or I can link to in the public domain, you'll see it. If I haven't, or can't (respectively) you won't... you want 'em? Buy the books. I wouldn't steer you wrong, hypothetical readers... don't you trust a complete stranger on the internet?
