I know, I know, you think our entire lives revolve around yarn. But no, there's another underlying theme that is front and center this first weekend of a new year: fire. It brings light, food, fun, and a warm glow to these winter days.

We all love heating the house with wood.

Scott's taking advantage of the new year's bakery lull
to play with the torch and pretty glass some more.

This is how we say goodbye to our Christmas tree
on New Year's Day, with wishes for the coming year.

This morning, a pretty little snowstorm,
with fresh bagels and English muffin bread in progress.

Lovely. Has Scott ever thought about making lampwork orifice hooks? You know, in between all those other creative things he's baking!

Oh I am so jealous of that gorgeous bread oven in the backyard. One of these days we might have to pick your brains....or find the older posts...about how you did that. BTW, HI! On a completely different subject - going dairy-free is a challenge but isn't nearly as hard as it used to be. Have you experimented with raw milk? You might not have the same GI issues with that. Milk from other animals (sheep/goat) might work...and if you're up for a fun experiment (and I KNOW you usually are!) try making your own nut milk. Blend nuts of your choice and water. Start with a little water and up it to find the consistency you'd like. Strain the mixture of the nut pulp and you've got a creamy nut milk. Save the pulp you've strained for raw crackers if you're so inclined, or save the pulp for Scott to add to his bread dough - what a phenomenal taste that would be!

I love the picture of the oven in the snow!

I saw on bloglines that you posted from your iphone! I guess that answers my question about whether you got that for Christmas.

I didn't see it on the actual blog though, so I wonder what happened to it.

How do you like it so far?
