I am still in search of the bread we had in Ireland every morning. Considering that every where we went served it with every meal, you wouldn't think it would be so hard to find a recipe. I tried the recipe for Ballymaloe Brown Bread for epicurious.com. While delicious, it's not the right bread. I will make it again though. It's simple, only requiring one rise and no kneading. It has a nice crust and was fantastic warm with some nice Kerrygold Irish butter.

It's been a ridiculously awful two weeks at work. I left on Friday feeling frustrated and tired and looking forward to a day off. On my way through the mall, I passed Williams-Sonoma and decided that today was the day. I was going to go in there, pay more than I probably should, and leave with the NordicWare Teacake pan I had been coveting for ages. If I was coming back to work on Sunday, I was coming back full of tiny, tiny cakes.

I've been meaning to write about our honeymoon, but between adjusting to the time change on the way back and our normal schedule kicking my butt the past week, I was too exhausted. I've been craving Irish brown bread, which we ate daily, since we've returned home. I have a loaf of it in the oven as I type (smells wonderful), so I figured, "What better time to reminisce?"
