Bread Bowl Adventures

The Perfect Boutique was a great success. It was fun to see so many friends and loyal customers. Bread Bowls were the biggest sellers - probably because we had samples of Cheddar herb, Beer Bread, and Lemon Yogurt Cake available. People seem to love the idea of baking bread right in the bowl and then serving out of it too. The Bread Bowl Cookbook contains recipes for English Cottage Loaf (whole wheat), Beer Bread, Cheddar Herb Bread, Cranberry Pumpkin Bread, Zucchini Bread, Cabernet Walnut Bread, Orange Bread, and the dangerous one: Lemon Yogurt Cake. Don't make the lemon one unless you have others on hand to help you eat it. Otherwise - and I speak from experience - you may eat it all yourself. Most of the breads don't require yeast or kneading. The recipes are fast and easy (Beer Bread only has three ingredients: flour, sugar, and beer) and our friend Margo who was helping with the sale on the first day sold one of the bowls to a young man when she told him he would be a big hit with the ladies because he could bake bread.
