I’ve now made five successful loaves of bread, using recipes from Better Crocker Best Bread Machine Cookbook, and am quickly becoming used to fresh loaves of bread in the house.
These are the recipes I’ve made so far. I’ve only changed the recipes slightly.
Honey Whole Wheat Bread (4.5 stars) I added 1 tablespoon of gluten and 1 tablespoon of milk.
Cinnamon Honey Wheat Bread (4.5 stars) I added 1 tablespoon of gluten and 1 tablespoon of milk.
Bear Nut Bread (5+ stars – just the smell of this bread baking will drive you wild. I used Negro Modelo beer. Be sure to give this beer plenty of time to go flat; it’s reluctant to lose its head.) The smoked cheddar cheese at the grocery store was quite expensive, so I bought regular shredded cheddar cheese, and added 3/4 teaspoon of Cogin Liquid Smoke Hickory. I also added 2 teaspoons of gluten and 2 1/4 teaspoons of water. (I keep the liquid smoke on hand, sprinkling it into the oil when I cook hamburgers.)
Caraway Cheese Bread (3.5 stars – a little dry) I added 2 teaspoons of gluten and 1 tablespoon of milk. Next time I’ll also add 2 tablespoons of butter to add a little moisture.
As far as learning about bread baking, I’ve found Bread Machine Magic: Book of Helpful Hints the most worthwhile. I also bought Bread Machines for Dummies, which was so-so. I tried one recipe from the Dummies book, and it didn’t come out well at all.

I’ve had enough days at home. It was time to go out and do one of my favorite things – visit art galleries.
My first stop was to the Historic Arkansas Museum, which was having multiple exhibitions. I practically ran through Reel to Real: Gone with the Wind and the Civil War in Arkansas, which showcased some of the costumes, posters, and production paintings from the film. My real mission was to visit see the Mid-Southern Watercolorists’ 41st Annual Exhibition and Forgotten Places, a show featuring the work of photographers Rhonda Berry and Diana Michelle Hausam. Diana’s work will soon be appearing in the Only Originals Gallery.
My next stop was the Arkansas Arts Center, for In Search of Norman Rockwell’s America. I was disappointed that most of the works displayed were prints. I was hoping to see more of the artist’s original paintings. But, since there was no charge for the exhibit, I guess I can’t complain.
I also toured the rest of the museum, since the Arkansas Arts Center is good about switching out artwork. This time, they were displaying drawings from their permanent collection. Some were quite wonderful and one, Four Figure Set Piece by Kent Bellows, will live with me for some time.
From there it was the Hearne Fine Art Gallery, to see the works of Lawrence Finney. I saw a photograph of Daddy Watches in the newspaper, and just had to see more. I wasn’t disappointed, although this particular piece was much smaller than I’d imagined it would be. I love the exaggerated power of the arms and hands wrapping the tiny infant. My own father’s large hands are what I remember most, and it was seeing his hands – rather than his face – that brought me to tears at his funeral.
The colors in Finney’s oils are very clean. It’s as though he simply puts down a layer of color, and then adds the highlights and shadows over top. He often outlines the most important elements. Most of the highlights and shadows are simply lighter and darker versions of the base color. There is little to no color change to indicate a shift of light. But this simple approach lends folk-quality charm to lively, emotional works.
A poem by C.a.F. Samsel
The gurgle and splash of the fountain;
the water level low in summer’s heat.
A freight train’s wail and rumble.
Clinking dog collars.
“The kids” race past.
Tweet-eh. Tweet-eh. Tweet-eh.
Caw. Caw. Twe-e-e-e-p.
A blended melody of feathered beings.
Rainbow beams haze a dewy world.
The chirr of crickets, reluctant to sleep.
The buzz of grasshopper wings.
A lanky dog bounds from point to point,
following a flitted trail.
Cardinals break the chase,
sweeping low against the ground.
A pickup protests another day -
a scorching lot.
The hum and groan of the highway.
When did that sound arrive?
Too many trees felled, for now-boarded homes.

This pizza contains much less fat than restaurant-style pizza. It makes 4 large slices.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Roughly chop or slice the following ingredients:
1 green, red, or yellow pepper
1/2 red onion
1 crown of broccoli tops (cut these into small pieces; large pieces will burn)
Toss the chopped vegetables into a bowl, drizzle with olive oil, and toss to distribute the oil. Set aside. (Tip: These can be prepared the night before, or whenever you have time during the day.)
Put one four-cheese DiGorno pizza with rising crust on a pizza pan.
Sprinkle the pizza with jarred garlic powder and oregano leaves.
Add the vegetables (if there are too many, save the remainder for spaghetti sacue).
Put the pizza in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
Quarter and serve.
