It is Memorial Day weekend in the US, which is the official kick off of barbeque season. And that means it is time to pull out the barbecue to make grilled pizza!
"Grilled pizza?!?," you say. "Are you out of your mind?!?"
No, actually, grilled pizza is wonderful and great fun to prepare. And, let me tell you, the looks your friends and loved ones give you the first time you walk out to the barbecue with a large gob of dough in your hand is priceless.

Cornbread is one of those things that people get attached to. REALLY attached to. There are dozens of cornbread recipes, and for each one there is someone who swears that that recipe is the best. No amount of discussion will convince them that the recipe their mother and grandmother made isn't the greatest cornbread in the world.
Another one from Bernard Clayton's New Complete Book of Breads that I tried this weekend. Quite good. 3/4 cup chopped peanuts sounds like a lot, but the peanut flavor is actually quite subtle.

I made two fixes that people have been asking for this morning.
The first is that search used to only work if you entered a term that was 5 characters long or greater. That meant that searches for things like "Pita Bread" dropped the word "pita" and only searched on "bread," resulting in far too many matches.
I've dropped the search word length down to 3 characters, which should improve the quality of search results.
The second had to do with word wrapping in the blog section. Referring URLs are listed automatically, but because some of the URLs were extremely long it was blowing out the side of the template, resulting in text that you had to scroll sideways to read. Yuck.
I fixed it so that now the URL you see is truncated at 120 characters. You can still click on the link to see the full, long URL.
Can photos of bread in a book crackle? Because I swear I've heard some of the close ups of bread in Maggie Glezer's Artisan Baking Across America make sounds. And give off aromas. They are amazing.
