My new website is coming along. I’ve been using ProPhoto for my blog since ProPhoto 3, I think, and now they’re up to ProPhoto 6. After seeing how powerful ProPhoto 6 was, I decided to build my entire site using it. But I’ve discovered that while ProPhoto 6 is amazing, it’s also a completely different beast. There’s a bit of a learning curve. I’ve got it figured out now, and my site is coming down to some final tweaks, but it’s taken a wee bit longer than I planned for it to. I’m hoping to introduce it to the world soon though! In the meantime, let’s talk about bread. Specifically this bread …
I don’t know about you, but I like looking at food blogs and recipes with pretty pictures and catalogs like the King Arthur Flour catalog. Usually looking at the King Arthur Flour catalog leads me right back to the recipes on their site, which is where I was introduced to Pane Bianco. I love fresh baked bread. But fresh baked bread with cheese and garlic and sundried tomatoes and basil? I AM SO THERE.
This bread looks fancy and impressive, but trust me on this, it’s really quite easy to make. I’m not just saying that because I’ve done a fair bit of baking before. I think this is one of those recipes that you could tackle even if you aren’t a baker. If you’re pretty good at following directions, it’s doable. And delicious.
It was only after buying all of the ingredients that I realized this was King Arthur Flour’s bakealong challenge for August. They pick out a recipe for people to try and give some tips and tricks. Then you can feel super successful when you make your own delicious loaf of bread. I like it. It sounds fun. And I’m intrigued by their teaser for their next bakealong challenge on September 1st. A treat featuring pumpkin? I am so down.
I was sitting here this afternoon sipping my coffee with pumpkin spice creamer in it (yes, I know, it’s at Target already) and doing a little daydreaming about fall when I realized that I have a bunch of photos from last fall that I never shared with the world. Since it’s Thursday, we can consider this another throwback Thursday of sorts. We’re throwing it back to the end of October and very beginning of November when I took a trip back east and got to explore Virginia (namely Richmond and Williamsburg) and North Carolina. I ate lots of food, had awesome company (hi, Andrew!), and took many photos that I’ve been very bad about posting. If you like blog posts with a zillion photos in them, you’re in luck! Crank up some music (I recommend starting with the two new songs by The Head and the Heart, “Library Magic” and “All We Ever Knew”), kick back, and pretend it’s fall with me, will you?
Still working on the new site. But in the meantime I thought I would post a photo from Yosemite in April. Since the waterfalls were flowing like crazy, I knew I had to try the Mist trail to see Vernal Fall. It did not disappoint. I’m definitely wishing I was there today. I’m itching to take my cameras (yes, plural), some film, and get out and take photos again. Soon.
I have had the same website for a couple of years now (I think). My hosting is up at my old host this month, so I figured it was time to make some changes. I am rebuilding my site using WordPress. I am also in the process of attempting to carry over all of my old WordPress posts from my blog. So things might be a little sparse here for time being. I’m working on getting all of my posts and images back, and at the same time, building a new site. Hang in there with me! I’ll have this thing looking amazing-ish again soon.
