New Recipe - gluten free and dairy free Buckwheat Bread
Life has been a bit busy lately. But, Laura has managed to produce another bread recipe worth publishing on the web. This one is a gluten free and dairy free Buckwheat Bread (pictured above). I like it, and my parents like it, and everyone that has tried it likes it thus far. It uses light buckwheat to obtain a rather mild flavor, along with a bit of Flax and some SoyMilk.
I have eaten it plain, toasted, and even with a chocolate-hazelnut spread on top (which all really went well together). There are now a solid four bread recipes in our repertoire, which gives me some nice variety. More on the way too. Next planned one is a Cinnamon-Raisin bread (mmmmmmm! I miss that bread).
Off to pick up a few hundred shipping boxes for the books now. Thankfully Cleveland still has some local manufacturing capacity, and I found a very reasonably priced box-manufacturer here in town that doesn't mind selling to me direct if I pick up at their site in person, and though I have purchased smaller quantities than usual for them, they gave me an excellent pricing discount so I stick with them as operations grow.
Another thing that is slowing our book-company progress is the darn Patriot Act. How, you say? Well, read my blog entry about Patriot Act insanity if you want details. Basically, the new law makes it nearly impossible to quickly add a "dba" (doing business as) to an existing company. So, more government bureaucracy in the way of progress! Argghhh! In the mean time, or for good if I don't get this resolved, I will have to take payments for the book under my existing Software Company's Name instead of "SureTalent Books" (the "dba" name). Lame! But, oh well.
My wife and I have been trying out this nifty little specialty pan recently, called the Baker's Edge, which maximizes crust-surface-area through a unique maze-like design. I'm doing a full review on it in the next few days - so stay tuned for results and pictures.
Off to real "work" for the day now!
