So today I was crouching down to wipe the dust off of the baseboard in my so called master bathroom and saw a piece of green behind the small cabinet of small books.
Yes, the bathroom, the one not used for showers and so rarely filled with moisture except when the skylight leaks, and it's dry here in New Mexico... that's where I keep the bird books (small) and the small old poetry books, and, as it happened, a quickbread and muffin book had fallen behind the small shelves.
I was glad to see it, as I'd been looking for it recently and couldn't believe I'd tossed the book or given it away. So, voila!!
Delicious Quick Breads and Muffins
, by Dimetra Makris. Right away I found three recipes I'll do, and already have most of the ingredients -
Curry Cheese Biscuits
Carrot Pineapple Raisin Bread (extremely oddly, I have all these)
Zucchini Bread (well, yawn, but good to see it mentioned)
Sweet Potato Bread, that could interest me, and I even have a sweet potato.
I like dessert books and baking books, not to mention blogs about all this, but there is something piquant about an old favorite book.
What are your treasured baking sources or regarded sources - file cards from family, newspaper clippings, books, or online websites, and dare I mention blogs (I ask as a blog fiend) ?
