Happy Labor Day! I wanted to make the most of the societal and hopefully climatic, if not calendar, last day of summer with some homemade ice cream.

I know practically everyone in the country is on a bread baking kick right now. Well, I'm not immune to trends because I recently decided I wanted to bake my way through a book I have owned for about a decade: The Bread Baker's Apprentice by Peter Reinhart. It has been an exciting adventure, or "breadventure"if you will. Peter Reinhart uses a lot of preferments, or hydrated flour and yeast that has been allowed to ferment in advance of making the full bread dough recipe in which the preferment is used. This means it requires a bit more planning to make his breads, but they are more flavorful as a result. It has been really fun to prepare for "bread day" every week and even more fun to eat the results.

Disclaimer: this eggnog is much more attractive in real life. Perhaps my new year’s goal will be to learn how to photograph beverages…during the darkest part of the year…
