It's a phrase that makes some people cringe.....
Just not me.
It’s funny, but that phrase doesn’t do much to my insides (or outside, for that matter). Not much, other than swell up with happiness and pride.
Maybe it's because it’s a part of life. You know, the way you take a few ordinary ingredients sitting around the house and put them together to create something new and great.
You see, bread is the heart of many diets, certainly mine included. And as a passionate baker of bread, and yes, the occasional bun, it only seems natural to announce a piece of good news by linking it back to the bread-baking process. This whole “activating”, “rising”, and “baking for x amount of time” process feels especially close to home at the moment.
Although my bun won’t be ready until early February, predicted on my Grandma Frerich’s birthday, in fact; each day forming it is beyond a blessing. After three too many bun-rising letdowns in the past, we have a pretty good feeling that this is the one.
The perfect bun.
To celebrate my little bun, over the next few weeks I’ll be posting bun recipes on The Transplanted Baker. Bun number one will be Rosinboller, Norwegian Raisin Buns- one of my personal favorites!
