No, I haven't forgotten about this blog. It's still very much alive; however, final exams are impeding my baking development a little bit. My sourdough starter is alive and kicking as well: the above photo is the fully risen starter sitting on top of a stack of my exam notes.
After Friday, I'll be finished with exams, and the serious baking can commence once again. I'll be in DC briefly but will probably do some baking there, and if all goes well, my return home will bring all kinds of new treats to the board: expect to see different kinds of sourdough starters, a makeshift brick oven, and much more.
Until then, au revoir.
