Recipe Nominations for March

Okay kids, this is how Recipe Nominations will work:

We ask for nominations. An executive committee will review the nominations. One simple and one more difficult recipe will be chosen to be featured the following month. Then, we will ask for volunteers to host said recipes. A host for each recipe will be chosen by random number generator from the list of volunteers.  Once you have hosted, you move to the back of the line to give others the same chance.

Easy enough, right?

Enter your recipe nomination for March in the comments below. Please include page numbers. Recipe Nominations will close on 2/12/12.

Please leave Recipe Nominations only. This is a NO CHAT post.

Let the games begin!

Some information and some questions answered

Our first recipe posts on Tuesday!  Some of you are wondering what that means and how this actually works.  Here is what happens:

On Monday night (because we have bakers from all over the world and our Monday is someone else’s Tuesday) Laurie or I will put up a new post titled “LYL: White Loaves.  LYL = Leave Your Link.  In the body of the post will be links to our blogs because we are the hosts for this recipe.  There might be a photo or two (of us or our bread) as well.  Anyone who has baked along and created a blog post is invited to put a link to said blog post in the comments section.  As long as it is Tuesday where you are, please leave your link.  (Note – I will often write my blog on Sunday and set it to post on Tuesday.)   I place my link in the comments section with the time that it will actually post.  You should be able to click through any of the links to see the gorgeous loaves that the TWD bakers have created.

It is likely to be overwhelming at first.  We have over 300 blogs registered.  Visit as many as you can without going crazy.  You have two whole weeks to look at these posts before a new recipe will take its place.

We ask that the only people posting the recipe(s) are the hosts.  In your blog post, please link to the hosts if you’d like people to be able to find the recipe.  Alternately, tell them to go buy the book.

If there are any other questions, please either e-mail us or leave them in the comments.  We’ll try our best to answer quickly.

Bake on!

Tweet Tweet

Hey yall,

There are a bunch of ladies on twitter who like to have live bake-alongs. I thought we should go ahead and give everyone an opportunity to broadcast their twitter name. No pressure if you like your tweets private and what not.

TWD is @TuesdaysWDorie, and I am @superslush. I will let Jules add hers in comments if she wants to share. ;)

Bake on!

 

I know what I’m doing Tuesday afternoon!

From Dorie:

Hi Laurie and Julie,

This is kind of incredible and I’m still trying to imagine it, but on Tuesday, January 10, from 2:40 until 3 pm EST, I am going to be a guest on NPR’s Talk of the Nation with Neal Conan and the talk is going to be about TWD!!  Talk of the Nation is a call-in show, so if you’d like to call in or if you’d like to post that I’ll be on so that others can call in, that would be fabulous.  

Here’s the link to the site:

And here’s the toll-free call-in number:

HOW TO CONTACT THE SHOW:
Call us at (800) 989-8255
Send us your question or comment for broadcast.

Some changes are afoot!

Soon you will start to see a few things that look a bit different.  The information from this site will essentially be archived (still available to all) and new posts/information about our new book will be published.

Keep your eyes peeled for updates and details about our new book and group.

Happy new year!

And a personal note of thanks

I received the most amazing book in the mail last week.  It was full of photos of friends, smiles, and memories.  It’s been a pleasure to bake alongside all of you for the past three and a half years.  It’s been my honor to be able to help out on the site for the last one and a half.  I can’t wait for our journey to continue with our next book.  Have a wonderful, sweet new year!
