Mindy, I just saw this. Hmm. I do keep mine in my pantry as well, it is probably about the same temp. Are you using the same temp water as he calls for? I get the best results when I am very careful with the details. I find the quality eases off as I get more relaxed about it.

I am afraid there are just too many components in this recipe to be able to post it. I highly recommend the book, or you might be able to google around for it!

I am so glad you liked her cake. They are always very simple when I do them, but I like them better that way anyway. I will take the taste of a homemade cake over the look of a store bought any day. I can imagine the baby envy. It was because of baby envy that Emily is here. ;) I certainly wouldn't mind if you were forced to have a third.

Mindy, I am using the 75 grams starter, 150 grams flour mix, and 150 grams water. It seems to be working perfectly. I am making two more loaves today.

I use it in cold water for certain loads, although I assume it does work better in warm/hot water. I never see undissolved detergent though.

I googled around for other people following it. It is one of the reasons I posted this. I hope your starter is as successful as mine!

Yes, that sounds right to me, too. Justin would be jealous of the pecan pie. Pecan bars sound great to me right now. I love the nuts, just not the custard!

Northern Spys! I am jealous. I have mail ordered them a time or two. We certainly do not get them down here in Louisiana. Lovely photo.

I always do when I make lasagna using bolognese and bechamel, but not when I make this one. Truthfully I like both in different ways. I should really try it once though. Last night I was struggling to get this one done before Justin left for the graveyard shift.

Thank you, Elaine. That is very kind of you. This is good comfort food. My grandfather loved to eat, just like I do...

Unfortunately Mike, I guess not. Which is ridiculous if you ask me. Thank you, and do try the tomato version!

Thank you both! Yes, lots of people have problems commenting on my blog. I think I may have figured out the work around. Click on the 'sign in with typepad' button. Once you get there apparently you can actually choose the other options. Karen, try it for me. :)

Of course, Darcie. Do send me a link to your article if you publish a variation.

No, but I am thrilled you considered it a possibility! I just bought a white piece of foam board. I do covet a lightbox.

Thank you, Dorie. I would have let the cheese brown a bit more, but my husband was leaving for a graveyard shift and I had to cut him a piece. :) I can't wait to make the mustard tart this week!
