BYOB - #BakeYourOwnBread (Nov. '12) + PASSING THE BREAD BASKET


Hey everybody!  Whew, it has been another lightning-quick month.  I didn't think time could go any faster than it did in September, but October proved me wrong.  Now, I mentioned "passing the bread basket".  Basically, the year is quickly coming to an end.  That means, MY year of hosting BYOB is almost finished.  Initially when Cathy handed me the bread basket, my intention was to host for one year and then pass it on to somebody else.  And after much contemplation, that plan stands.  Connie is on board for the hand-off as well.  It'll be a relay.  So, my big question is: DO YOU WANT TO TAKE OVER HOSTING #BAKEYOUROWNBREAD in 2013?

If you want to take your turn holding the bread basket and gathering up everybody's delightful posts for the next year (or longer - entirely up to you), please leave me a comment or shoot me an email.  Ask me any questions and voice any concerns.  I will help you to the absolute best of my abilities.  You are free to host in any way that you choose (linky tool, roundups, etc)...so please help to keep the home bread baking movement alive!

***UPDATE: Thanks so much for the great response - I will be passing the bread basket to Roxana in 2013 since she responded first.  So exciting!  So keep stopping by here with your bread through end of December and then get ready to visit Roxana in January.

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 either 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.

Join us in our Optional BYOB feature:
Looking for a little inspiration?  Well, not only can you click on any of the wonderful links added to the BYOB bread basket each month, you can also join us in our optional feature, BYOB - Featured Bread Blog!

Each month we will feature one blog.  This blog doesn't have to be all about bread, but it will contain enough bread recipes to offer diversity and inspiration for those at different stages in their home bread baking journeys!

So, it you'd like to bake along, our featured blog for November is still Farine.  Since last month flew by so quickly, we're extending our time with last month's featured blog. If you decide to join in and bake something inspired or adapted from this site, please be sure to take your own photos and re-write the recipe in your own words, as well as linking back to the original post with a credit. If you think of it, leave a comment while you're there...let them know they inspired you.

Don't forget to leave a comment letting me know that you participated this month, so that I can add you to the round-up for next month!
