Our blue and white butter dish sits on the cutting board and next to it, a fabulous bread knife. We’re bread-y kind of people. When we visited a … Continue reading Magic Bread

Just wondering...... Do you ever... Purposefully sing out of tune to see how it sounds? Like, really loud so that your vocal chords hurt?
