I was delighted and honored to find out that Susan of Wild Yeast included Baking History in her selection of five blogs she considers worthy of receiving the “E for Excellent” Award. Susan, baker extraordinaire, is a source of inspiration for me—I visit her blog daily and never cease to be amazed at her wonderful skills and passion for the joyful art of bread baking. Thus receiving the award from her made it even more special.
Thank you Susan!!!
Recipients, in turn, are entitled to choose five other bloggers they wish to recognize for their inspiring work. It is tough to restrict my choices to only five—all of those listed in my blogroll are favorites. However, among all of them here I wish to mention:
Marye of Apron Strings and Simmering Things: I enjoy reading her posts, not just for the scrumptious dishes but for her sense of humor, enthusiasm and spirit
Nils of Ye Olde Bread Blogge for his wonderful breads and informative tips about techniques
Simona of Briciole for writing a great dictionary of Italian words, interspersed with recipes and memories. She does a truly wonderful job explaining with detail and skill the beauties and intricacies of the Italian language
Robert of TimeFiction— The Time Travel Logs for writing about one of my favorite themes in the area of sci-fi: time travel. The blog is new but the writings that are there so far (The New England Series) are really great.
Ex aequo (so I can mention them both) Louise of Months of Edible Celebrations and T.W. of Culinary Types. Louise’s blog is a gold mine of information about food history and food-related inventions. T.W.’s blog is full of retro recipes and beautifully written stories that provide the perfect context for each dish.
Thank you all for your beautiful blogs.
