April pickers

Hey ladies that picked April’s recipes…guess what!

I have lost each and every email that you sent to me, because someone thought they’d be sweet and clean out my inbox for me.    sigh.

Could you please send it again.

For Potential New Members

Here are our rules, as listed on The Rules page:

  • You must own the book, Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
  • We always post on Tuesday. As long as you post when it is Tuesday for you, you are good to go.
  • Everyone must participate at least two out of four weeks. If you participate every week, fantastic! If you participate every other week, grand! This is not up for negotiation.*
  • You must have a blog to post your baking adventures on. This is the only real way for us to know that you are indeed baking along with us.
  • If you must miss more than 2 weeks of a particular month, please email us and let us know! We are keeping track, so if you do not tell us you are on vacation, sick or having a baby, we do not know. Please take 2 seconds to send us a line.

That’s it, 5 rules. This isn’t rocket science, its baking people. But, we have these rules to keep the Recipe Rotation fair. Any questions, comments or complaints can be sent directly to tuesdayswithdorie AT gmail.com.

If you are stull interested, comment here or email by midnight EST tonight. Then membership will once again close.


P&Q: Play nice kids

This past weeks P&Q irritated me. In fact, I stopped reading comments because many folks were not being… for lack of a better word.. nice. P&Q is a place to address problems and questions about the week’s chosen recipe. It is not a place to bash a recipe because you do not like how it turned out, or worse, just don’t like the choice in general.

Please keep your comments respectful. Its okay to say you didnt like something. But, leave it at that, please. I do not want to start moderating comments, but I will if I have to.

Play nice kids.

New Member Requests

I seem to get an influx of new member requests everyday. Its not hard to see why, we are fabulous. ;)

However, we are currently not accepting new members. TWD is a closed group right now. We may open up to new members later this year.  I will be sure to post several times if that happens. Until then..

Thanks. Bake on!


Recipes for February

February 3, 2009- Jessica of cookbookhabit chose World Peace Cookies, page 138-139.

February 10, 2009- Shari of Whisk: a food blog chose Floating Islands, page 401-402.

February 17, 2009-  Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater chose Devils Food White Out Cake, page 247-249.

February 24, 2009- Whitney of What’s left on the table? chose Caramel Crunch Bars, page 112-113.

Also, its been brought to my attention that members would like a forum to talk to one another other than the weekly P&Q. Well, it just so happens that we have one! We have our very own Google Group that is open to be used by any and all members. Please go check it out!

Attention New Members

I am going to post a short note here rather than answer the 15-20 emails that sit in my box asking this question. I will be adding new members this coming weekend. It takes a good amount of time to do this, as your names/URLs are added in several places on the blog. Please, please, please be patient until I have the time to do this. Remember, this is a hobby for me and not a job.

Next, a few rules I want the new bakers to be aware of. We always post on Tuesday. This is a good refresher for older members as well. I see those of you posting on Monday when you live in the US! Second, Rewind Recipes as they have been come to be known are only acceptable when stated. Again, another reminder for older members, I see rewinds popping up everywhere. Please try to stick to the recipe of the week. This group is about baking the SAME recipe together!

If you have questions or comments about the group, you can leave them here and myself or a member will try to answer them in a timely fashion. Or, you can email me at tuesdayswithdorie AT gmail.com

Welcome to all the New Members! Bake On! xo~ Laurie
