Thanks the baking group Tuesdays With Dorie, I baked my first yeast bread in November, 2008, and was thrilled with how my Kugelhopf turned out. When the holidays were over, I turned to yeast baking in earnest. My "Adventures in Yeast" quickly multiplied, and my poor old blog, The Dogs Eat the Crumbs, quickly became swamped with posts for bread as well as sweets and regular food. My drafts list multiplied to the extent that I was months behind in all of my posts. I (almost) hesitated to try new bread recipes because I didn't have a prayer of posting them. So "divide and conquer" it is!
I set up this blog about a month ago, and have continued to debate whether and when to actually make it public. At church this morning, both the first and second scripture readings contained the language from Psalm 118 "The stone that the builder rejected has become the corner stone." Since that Psalm relates to the blog's title, I decided this was the right day to launch Corner Loaf blog! The next post will feature the bread that inspired this blog's title and provided the image for the blog's banner.
Food blogging helps me keep track of what food I prepare and when, as well as what changes I made and how it turned out. My hope is that the notes will help others, too, as they explore the same or similar recipes. It seems natural for me to have a separate blog for the bread posts. If I can figure out how, I will copy my previous "Adventures in Yeast" over to this blog also. That way all the bread will be in one place. In the meanwhile, you can find those loaves by clicking the "yeast" category at The Dogs Eat the Crumbs.
I'll be posting new experiments as well as posts from my large number of drafts. I don't plan to post in chronological order so my yeast "#"s in the posts' titles will be out of sequence, but if it doesn't matter to me, I'm sure it won't bother you!
