I bake bread for my family every week. Home baking is not that hard, not that time consuming, and certainly cheap! You don't need a bread machine or a lot of fancy equipment. This blog features a tutorial on home bread baking, tips on equipment and ingredients, and recipes for real home cooking.

Cucumbers ready for dressing

I made a big batch of this today, for my brother Chris's wedding.
  • 4 fresh cucumbers, peeled or scored with a fork. then sliced thin.
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream, plain yogurt, or a mix of the two
  • fresh ground pepper
  1. As you slice the cucumbers, lay them in a glass bowl and salt each layer. (Don't worry, you'll rinse the salt off later.)
  2. Once the cucumbers are sliced and salted, lay a clean plate on top of them with a weight on top of the plate. Let sit for an hour or so.
  3. Drain brine from the cucumbers and rinse in a colander.
  4. Thin sour cream with a little milk, whip until smooth, and then use sour cream to dress the salad.
  5. Grind fresh pepper over the top, chill and serve.
Richard's dad makes the same salad, but dresses it with cider vinegar and sugar and calls it "fresh pickles".

There's more to food than just nutrition, otherwise we would all be eating custom-formulated kibble. I didn't exactly learn to bake from my grandmother, but my ancestors, even the ones I never met, have informed and influenced my lifelong exploration of cooking and food. Want to read more?
