I found this vintage postcard in a shop in New York City, and it hangs framed all the year round, but it is especially appropriate for Valentine's Day, don't you think? And it reminds me of Mr. Rogers asking "Won't ya be my neighbor?!" every time I walk by it. So hilarious.
It's been a crazily busy week for me, trying to complete several personal jobs, along with getting all of Hello Handmade's Valentine orders out in the mail. I'm definitely ready for the weekend to start!
I did find time to make another loaf of this lovely bread this week - I'm trying to get into the rhythm of making a loaf every week for our sandwiches, in addition to other bread experiments...I'll keep you posted! My friend Marianne and I went to an enlightening King Arthur Flour Bread Workshop a couple of weekends ago, and I'm more inspired than ever to try to bake all of our own bread. Do you have any bread recipes you are particularly loving right now?

The Great Book of Bread by Rosemary and Nick Moon has some GREAT breads and a good variety of them. It's a great beginner's book: they are good tasting and very pleasing to produce. Well worth checking out from your local library.

Boy, does this bread look good. And boy, do I miss you.

I make my own bread, and it uses a sourdough starter. But the bread comes out light and yeasty, never sour. It is heavenly. I got the starter from a friend of a friend in another state. I don't even know how to make it. I hope it never dies.
