Martha Stewart's Pumpkin Bread
I love baked good. I mean, I have a baking blog! I seriously love baked goods.
But I l-o-v-e pottery and ceramics.
And if I can combine the two, I'm there.
During my mini-break, I stopped in at Gary Holt's studio in Berkeley. He has some amazing stuff and he is able to do crossword puzzles in ink! My friend Sumi has a bunch of his pieces at her place.
Gary Holt's website for professional photos of his work!
Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook book. This is a great book to add to your collection. Great photos and OCD quality instructions.
My bread didn't turn out great and I don't blame Martha. I blame my flour...it was clumpy and I should have sifted it before using it. I ended up overmixing a quick bread. And overmixing...that's bad. I'll definitely try the recipe again in the future...as I need to keep loaves on this pretty piece of pottery!
