I´m right now in a bread making phase, learning to make bread with sourdough. I can´t stop being amazed how a mixture of flour (the sourdough) makes the bread rise. I´m not just making sourdough bread, yeast I found is still more reliable. These bread buns are made with yeast. And here you can find the recipe.

I think that 2011 might be a patchwork year. First out is this pillowcase made for a very cute little 1 year old girl called Ellen.
