BYOB - #BakeYourOwnBread (Dec.'12)

Hello!  Who else cannot believe that it is already December?  I look forward to a month filled with holiday-inspired creations.  Speaking of inspired, did you check out last month's #BakeYourOwnBread basket? As usual, I have about a zillion more recipes that I must try.  MUST.  This month is bittersweet for me.  I'm so excited that we've made it through another year of baking bread at home...and that all of you have joined me on this journey.  But that also means that my year of hosting is drawing to a close.  And that I will be passing the bread basket.  But not to worry, the lovely Roxana of Roxana's Home Baking will be taking over in the new year; the basket will be ready and waiting for your home baked bread.

And now, I look forward to everybody joining us and helping us to fill up our final bread basket.  Let's fill it high!  I want some lovely holiday breads poking out this month.

How to participate (the rules):
1.) Blog about bread.  It can be a post about baking bread in any form (yeast, wild yeast, quick breads, flat breads, sweet, savory, loaves, rolls, breadsticks, tortillas, scones, biscuits, crackers, etc.).  It could also be a recipe that uses bread in it or as a base (pizza, bread pudding, sandwiches, etc.).  Or it could be an informative post, a tutorial or how-to post (such as how to make sourdough, bread baking essentials, favorite products for baking bread, etc.).  It could be a review of a book or cookbook having to do with bread.  It could be a photo-only post (bread festival, bakery tour, etc.).  Anything that inspires us to bake bread at home.

2.) Include a link back to this post or any of the monthly link-up posts (link in my sidebar or at the bottom) OR link to one of the other hosts.  As long as there is a link that leads people back to BYOB.  You can use a text link or the BYOB button.

  3.) Add a link to your post in the current month's BYOB linky/roundup post on any of the hosting blogs.  If you are participating in the optional BYOB - Featured Bread Blog, please let us know by dropping me a note in the comments or somehow marking  your post.

4.)  Please link only posts from the current month.

Since this our final month hosting BYOB before passing the bread basket to Roxana, we will not be having a featured bread blog.  Instead, Connie and I would like to present the optional feature of - HOLIDAY BREADS.  If you link up a holiday bread, be sure to let one of us know in our comments section so that we can gather them up and feature them!

As always, feel free to tweet any BYOB posts using the hashtag #BakeYourOwnBread. I will be tweeting entries using that hashtag. I've also started a BYOB Pinterest Board to share the love!

I want to send out a big THANK YOU to everybody who has baked bread in their home kitchens this year and added it to our big, virtual bread basket.  I've found so many recipes that I want to try...they're sure to take me through a whole 'nother year!  Be sure to head over to Roxana's place at the start of 2013 to share all of your inspiring bready creations!
