Welcome. I took a bit of a break from this blog, but now I’m back. For those who have stuck around, thank you. I really do appreciate your support. For those who are new, welcome. This little corner of the internet is my space to explore foods that I love and the culture and space I feel the most connected to: Newfoundland, Canada.
These are strange, somewhat scary, times. The world is changing rapidly with the introduction of this little virus called Covid-19 and I thought that a little baking happiness is needed. Baking is my happy place. I love to explore different foods as well as fall back on the comfort foods.
This potato thyme loaf is just that. Firstly, fresh bread has always been a weakness of mine. When I was in baking school we were allowed to take some of our bread and baked goods. The rest were sold in the school cafeteria. Nice win for them and the other students. But because I could eat what I made I gained at least 20 pounds eating everything I could. The intoxicating smell of fresh bread just calls out to me.
This potato thyme loaf has that wonderful aroma when it comes out of the oven. The thyme and garlic go well perfectly with a roast beef – hot beef sandwiches anyone? The mashed potato give the loaf a great fluffiness.
Give it a try. You won’t be dissappointed.
