Savory Christmas Bread

Baking with the King

It may be a few days after Santa popped down the chimney, but if your tree is still up, there’s no reason you can’t keep baking like it’s Christmas!  After all the cookies I’ve been eating lately, I was in the mood for something savory to bake.  King Arthur Flour once again did not let me down – I stumbled upon this savory Christmas bread full of cheese, green peppers, and sun-dried tomatoes and figured I’d give it a try.

If you want a delicious-tasting bread that takes less than an hour to make, this recipe is for you!

Ok, let’s start off with the recipe found in my King Arthur Baker’s Companion:


  • 3 cups (12 and 3/4 ounces) unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces provolone cheese, grated (approximately 2 cups)
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 3 large…

Prince Charles moves forward with plans to charge £120 for beach metal detecting permit.

The Daily Detectorist

With the new Tory government in place, Teresa May has given the nod for the delighted Prince Charles to move forward with his long desired scheme of charging metal detectorists to search any land in the United Kingdom that he holds a duchy.
For Decades, the heir to the throne of England has relentlessly pushed his idea of charging detectorists to try and rapaciously scrape more money from his duchies in Cornwall, Wales and any other beaches owned by the crown estate, and he allegedly believes that £120 a month is a fair price to pay for a hobby that regularly gives financial return. After a special secret meeting at the house of lords attended by all seat holders, Teresa May, and Prince Charles, a decision was passed with immediate effect, that a metal detecting license is now required by law to search crown estate beaches and all beaches in…

The Revolutionary Art of Hearth-Keeping


hearth fire

We are living in terrible times. Every passing day brings more violent racist, homophobic, transphobic, anti-Semitic, xenophobic and classist attacks and incidents at every level of society, from local street violence to “Alt-Right” rallies to State and Federal governmental attempts to (and occasional successes in) passing oppressive legislation to the stripping away of protections for vulnerable communities. The regime we are currently living under is one that attempts to strip us of both individual and group identity, shames us for interdependence, and seeks to destroy our connection to ancestors and descendants, and to the land upon which we live (as complex as these relationships can be). The dominant paradigm is one that endorses survival of the most privileged, at the expense of nondominant communities and vulnerable people. And we are handed the lie that we can rise above the oppression of our people by disavowing ourselves of our cultures, that…

Blueberry Cornbread Muffins —

Cornbread and cornbread muffins remind me of fall. Maybe because chili reminds me of fall too–and chili and cornbread go together so well. It’s officially fall now, but I wanted to give a last nod to summer by adding a summery element to these cornbread muffins–fresh blueberries! The blueberries give this slightly-sweet cornbread a great […]

Here is a snippet:

There once was a prince who wanted another man to fill his bed. He had to be a real prince like himself. Be willing to travel to far and distant lands and enjoy many a night with all kinds of drunken wenches male or female if they so desired.

Yesterday was the first day that I felt like I could breathe again. For the past two weeks, my chest has been heavy…my breathing labored by the layers of sickness that had enveloped me. What started as a flu became the constricting fingers of pneumonia wrapped tightly around my lungs. With steroids and antibiotics and a lot of rest….I have slowly plodded my way back into life.

Yesterday was so warm and sunny here. During my lunch hour I always walk the pups. I feel it is a good chance for them to stretch their legs and empty their bladders and it gives me a chance to walk away from the work-a-day world for a few moments. When I walked into the house, my nostrils flaired…an old familiar scent caressed my face. It was the smell of lilacs. My roommate had put one of those scent ports in with the…
