I began Sunday afternoon and felt like I was slapping dough for hours on end. In order to bring this into work, I set the alarm for 2:30 am so I could pop it into the pan and let it go through the final rise.

Oh Nuts! offered me some dried fruits and nuts, and they sent me some delicious dried blueberries, pine & mac nuts. They are really glorious. I have lots of plans for these ingredients and will write more about them soon! Be sure to check out Oh Nuts! - they have several storefronts in New York but offer everything yummy through mail order.
