Germany has more kinds of bread than any other country, or so this article claims. I will admit, it is pretty cool that the Germans have a kids' show about a grumpy piece of bread called Bernd das Brot (shown at right).
Many recipes for Irish Soda Bread in the papers this weekend, in time for Saint Patrick's Day. Here is one. Another.
I stumbled across an interesting sounding recipe for Skillet Bread. The only yeast it contains is Brewer's Yeast, which I'm not even certain leavens.
Archaeologists are uncovering evidence that Acorn Bread was commonly eaten in ancient Iran.
Finally, a tasty looking bread pudding recipe. With as much bread as I bake, it comes in handy to have ways of getting rid of stale bread other than just feeding it to the birds.
