Hi Lindy,

I just found your blog and spent an hour reading about your food adventures in Pittsburgh and reminiscing about my years at CMU. I love your writing and photography. Thank you so much for letting me relive all those memories. I have to admit that da ‘burg is a tough town for gourmet food, but I have a soft spot in my heart for the Strip District, great Indian restaurants, and Frick museum and café.

I am glad to hear that they have good bread now, but I applaud you for making your own. I love to cook, but I am not much of a bread baker. Luckily, however, I am married to a man who has enough patience to keep a bread journal and perfect this tricky art. You might like his notes at http://people.csail.mit.edu/jrennie/bread/journal.html



Thanks for stopping by, Helen. I will check out those bread notes.


I love using the crockpot. It is wonderful to come home to a ready meal. I'll give this one a try.
