Let the Games Begin

So, I guess when I signed up for the Bread Bakers Apprentice Challenge (“BBA Challenge”), it was inevitable that I would start a blog, too.  After all, everyone else has one.

For those of you who may have stumbled on this blog and who don’t know about the BBA Challenge, it is a group of 200 home bakers from around the world who have joined together with one simple goal:  to bake every recipe in Peter Reinhart’s The Bread Baker’s Apprentice.  We bake on our own, then write about our experiences in e-mails, on Twitter, on our Facebook group, and, of course, on our blogs.

I’ll admit I’ve wanted to start a blog for some time, but I needed a push to make me want to climb the learning curve.  The BBA Challenge has provided that push.  Fortunately, I have a lot of baking experience, so I can spend my time figuring out this whole blogging thing.

I will post my baking results for the BBA Challenge here, but this won’t strictly be a BBA Challenge, or even just a baking blog.  I chose the name “Of Cabbages and King Cake” as an homage to three of my favorite pursuits:  reading, baking, and cooking.  So, you’ll likely see a mix of those and other topics here.

So welcome.  I hope we enjoy the ride.
