To Live and to Love

Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Deuteronomy 30:19-20.

Sunday Post Addendum March 22, 2009

I don’t know what I’d do with this tea towel, but it is super cute. Frame it? I was checking out a website that was linked from Design*Sponge (see previous knit post) and found this online shop that’s like a flea market with a click! Too cute, I say, too cute.


The best pizza dough recipe in the world: Merci a Williams-Sonoma: The Essentials of Baking

5 teaspoons yeast, 2 1/4 cup warm water +

5 cups flour (I mix 2 whole and 3 white), 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 teaspoons sugar, 1 tablespoon salt.

Mix, knead, let rise for 1 1/2 – 2 hrs, roll, and top away! Delicious and perfect crust everytime!

(Just thought I’d share. If interested, bake at 500 for 15 minutes. Makes two large pizzas.)


In researching hot cross buns, I found an article highlighting the tradition of hot cross buns in England via Traverse City, MI. Hot cross buns are traditionally made on Good Friday and the cross represents the cross, obviously, and the bun represents the rock which was rolled away from Christ’s tomb. (The sweetness also is a break from the Lent fast.)

As the baker in the article is quoted, saying, “The central thing is the cross.” Yes, indeed.

Heather LeFebvre posted a link to her hot cross bun recipe in the comment previous. If Heather LeFebvre said to make this recipe, than this recipe it is! When it comes to all things English, Heather knows best. [smile] My only question is where do you get currants?

    Well, I wasn’t saying my recipe is best! 🙂 I do like it, except for the fact that I need to improve on the crosses this year and that will be by making more of a dough out of flour and water and then cutting the dough into strips to put on top.

    You’ll have to get currants at a store like Trader Joes or Marsh (I’ve just put 5 pounds on order from a co-op — cheaper).

    I hope your buns turn out. I love, love, love the flavor of hot cross buns.

    I am so impressed with my WS pie and tart book you bought me for my wedding. The pie and tart crust recipes are EXCELLENT, so I am excited to try their pizza crust recipe. I’m not much of a cookbook person (prefer to get recipes through friends rather than flipping through cookbooks), but I am convinced any WS cookbook would be a good investment. Hope all is well with you. I’ve enjoyed reading you blog about your new adventures…
