Weekend Kitchen – April 16, 2011

My weekend  post  will include posting links to some great content I ran across during the week.

I will not  go into depth about the sites, but feel free to check it out if they sound interesting.

Al dente asks the question, Is rice the new bread in America? I guess in India is going the other way and eating more bread.

While on the subject of bread, read this post on  fact from Turkey: 6 million loaves of bread are thrown in garbage in turkey everyday.

A Sunbeam 5891 2-Pound Programmable Breadmaker from is an easy way to make fresh bread at home and is definitely on my wish list even though I don’t bake much. Good time to learn
