I look at cook books every now and then. Noticed there's a new five book set on bread. Then got sticker shock. Amazon has it for $532.88. But you do get free shipping.  :) Now this book has a bit over 1200 bread recipes.  So if you tried them all. Say three new loaves a week. That's almost 7 3/4 years. Overkill? Way over the top. Breaking the price down this fives book set offers each recipe at .44. Is that reasonable? My favorite book has 314 recipes. The latest print can be had by Amazon for $19.37. Cheaper by other sellers. If my favorite book's recipes cost .44 each? It would cost  138.16. Not only is that five book set excessive but way over priced.

The moral of the post is. If you do decide to get a few books there's things to stay away from.
One. Don't buy a picture book. Your paying for less recipes, less techniques and less needed knowledge.  if you really need to look at pretty pictures do a google search.
Two. Stay away from one trick ponies. An entire book of wheat bread. A book of 100 variations of pizza dough. And i could go on. I've seen them. These book offer little for the new baker.
Three. A book with a very small selection of bread. And a very big selection of cakes and pastries. If your looking to learn bread. Get a book that focuses only on breads.

What to look for.
A book that has recipes spanning different grains and styles. With well written instructions and illustrations on techniques. Because this book will give you the option of exploring new breads. Perhaps things you've never thought or heard of.

Remember it's not how many recipes you have. It's how many you make that counts. Out of the 314 in my favorite bread book I've only made 5. All five tasted differently. All made with the same flour. I even modded one of the recipes and like the mod better than the original. One good book could give you a lifetime of great breads.

A badger commission for my friend Mulchior.


Something a little colder-themed for winter. I haven't watched It or Stranger Things, and I want to, but never get around to it, so I guess this is sort deriving from those themes a bit.


Some Redwall-inspired work:I had this idea of some characters imprisoned on a galley, ready to escape, but a drunken guard nearly catches them in the act.

My new attempt of making cinnamon swirl bread is in the freezer. Wont know how they turned out till Thursday.

I've done a lot of searching for bread related stuff on line in the past week. More information about the hows, whys and what went wrongs than any sane person would ever need. I love the web.

Here's something different for breadheads. Now you can learn and eat history.

The SCFY channel put out lots of really bad shows in the 90's. Glad you were able to find the one you were searching for.

Doesn't sound like FarScape. Not a big TV person, but it sounds interesting.

I have a memory of watching a sci fi either film or tv show back in the 90s  (maybe 00s) on the sci fi channel.

All i can really remember is it was on some sort of space station, a new guy is getting introduced to his new team.

One member is a tall (alien?) who looks angry and I think hits the wall next to the new guy when the leader shows up

and says something like "and he wasn't even wearing his collar". He is then handed a collar which he puts on

The female team member is found somewhere else and I think she was doing some kind of martial arts computer game against someone and people were betting on it?

I think she and her opponent were on like pedestals on either end of a pit and in the pit were virtual versions of them and they were doing kicks on their platforms and their avatars were doing the moves.
and people were betting on it?

I know this is kinda vague (and its not any of the big ones like stargate or farscape etc etc).

any help is apriciated!!!
