Show & Tell: What I Did This Weekend


  1. SO impressed. Especially by those pretty white ones with slashes - mine never turn out like that. Hurry up with that bread school, will ya? ;)

  2. Hi Girls,
    I was afraid that posting this photo might lead to subtle inquiries regarding the rest of those bread baking tips I keep promising. I really am sorry for the delay and appreciate your patience. I honestly meant to post them the next day!

    I just wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to do the first five things on the list before I overwhelmed them with the rest of the tips.

    Hmmm. That sounded pretty good, didn't it? : )

    Coming soon? Yes. Definitely. Soon!

    P.S. Anne, at least you can bake an emergency chocolate cake while you're waiting. I did get that one up pretty quickly after the "coming soon" teaser! : )

  3. oh very pretty... R and i declared 2004 the "year of the bread" in our new years resolutions that year. we didn't make one loaf! i think we were too intimidated. maybe we can declare that for 2006 now that i can get tips from you! :) mav

  4. I baked the emergency chocolate cake and it was wonderful. Adam wanted to eat the whole cake. It was quick and easy to make too.

  5. Bread School? Can I enroll? I tried to bake bread once and it was a total failure. Too scared to try again but I am feeling a tinge of "I want to try again" after seeing your lovely pixs of your bread.

  6. I am just waiting for the announcement regarding Farmgirl's "Residential Bread Scool" [with evening entertainment by Cowboys & Hunky Farmers included ]

  7. Hi Mav,
    Thanks. How sad that your Year Of The Bread was loafless! Yes, you must definitely declare a repeat for 2006--but start practicing NOW! : )

    I was thinking about you over the weekend and wondering how the caked turned out. So happy it was a success! And I can definitely relate to Adam's response. : )

    See? You're not ready for the rest of the tips yet anyway. : )

    Hi Boo,
    No, there is no actual bread school (though that rumor seems to be spreading fairly quickly), just a (half-finished) post from me about bread baking tips. Don't let one failure scare you off! Try, try again! There is absolutely nothing that compares to freshly baked bread! : )

    Uh oh! She's baaaack! Hi Sam,
    I swear you are so going to get me kicked off blogger!

    Does sound like fun, though. : )


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
