Ready, Breadie?

Heads Up: Don't forget to vote for our next chef!  It's "girl-time" for the next six months, so head on over to the sidebar and vote for the person YOU most want to cook, bake, explore in the kitchen with.  Choose from Diana Kennedy, Madhur Jaffrey, Tessa Kiros, and Claudia Roden.
But this week, we're getting our bread on!  Brush aside those fear of the yeastie beastie's and head into the kitchen to bake up something beautiful and golden!  Jamie has some fantastic bread recipes, most of them based on one specific master recipe.  The possibilities are endless. 
Maybe your favorite is a simple baguette.  Maybe you want it swirled with cinnamon and studded with raisins?  Perhaps loads of fresh herbs are your bag.  maybe you want to toss it out into a disk and top it with glorious meats, veggies and cheeses?  Or even  a sweet or fruity bread to soak up your morning coffee?
While we're hoping everybody gets lost in a bakers wonderland, as always, our theme is open to interpretation.  Want to use a glorious loaf of bread to make a killer sandwich?  Or perhaps some custardy french toast?  Maybe you are in the mood for some bread pudding or something topped with toasty bread crumbs (okay, maybe that's pushing it a bit, but...).  Go on, get your bread on!

Make and post your Ready, Breadie? post by Sunday, September 18th. Don't forget to link your post of the week's with Mr. Linky below, so we can all enjoy your fabulous creation! Remember to leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.
Not sure what a permalink is? Check out our Welcome post.
If you missed the Condiments! theme last week, be sure to head on over and see all of the delicious dishes everyone brought!  Don't forget, we're cooking through the recipes of Jamie Oliver right if you've linked up, be sure that you've used/adapted one of his recipes for your post!

I am always ready for bread! And I am totally excited to cook from a new cheffette next month.
Thanks, Heather! ♥

Kim said...

I'm loving all those pictures of Jamie. Some I haven't seen before! I've had my bread recipes picked out way before we even started cooking with him. Hopefully I can get my act together and get it done!!

Deb in Hawaii said...

Yep, great Jamie picks. It will be hard to say goodbye in a couple weeks but fun to start with a new chef.

I'll probably take the easy way out this week based on my schedule and non-bread baker inclinations and make something with some lovely local bread, but I will look on in admiration to those of you who get the yeast out. ;-)

Deb in Hawaii said...

Told you I was taking the easy way out--I made the Eggplant and Mint Bruschette with a great multi-grain, seeded loaf from the farmers market. ;-) It was excellent.

Tina said...

Bread is always a challenge for mew but I find, the more I make it, the better I get. I made focaccia.

NKP said...

Rosemary and raisin bread is up! And very tasty!

Heather S-G said...

HA! Apparently Natashya and I were on the same Raisin Rosemary Bread is up, as well! =)

NKP said...

I'm always proud to be on the same wavelength with you, H!

Kim said...

I debated posting my bread recipe because it was a complete and total fail, but then I didn't want to miss a week so I went ahead with it.

Frustrating..they all went in the bin!
Oh well, what can you do?
