Ok, so as if moving from the US to Australia isn't crazy enough, but when it interferes with my reading habits, that's almost non-negotiable!!! However, now that we've been here for just over 3 months, I've settled in to somewhat of a routine and am able to actually sit down once and a while and read. Therefore, my first book is none other than what the title suggests, Friendship Bread by Darian Gee. Now, the weather is turning cooler here, so this book couldn't have been read at a more welcome time. It is obviously about 'Friendship Bread' which I was big in to a few years ago. I couldn't think of anything more welcoming than reading a book about baking! Now I haven't done much baking since I've been here, but I swear this book makes you want to dive right in and go get a bag of starter and get baking!
The book follows a group of women, unknown to each other initially, but then thanks to an anonymous bag of Friendship Bread starter grow to become fast friends that eventually change the entire town!
Not only is the book as delicious as the bread is, but it's full of recipe ideas and a website that leads to a plethora of Friendship Bread recipes that will undoubtedly melt in your mouth. So pick up a copy of Friendship Bread, start reading, and get inspired to make your own.
That being said, I think I may get busy on a starter of my own; and since I'm literally the new kid in town, get busy with sharing the goodness.
I'll keep you posted if the idea works as good as it did in the book. Ok, let's be honest, I'm not expecting miracles but a little Friendship Bread can certainly go a long way!!
Also be sure to check out the website: www.friendshipbreadkitchen.com
Happy Reading, and Baking!!!!
