Recipe: Mandioc bread with bacon and mint

Bread with aromatic herbs
November 02, 2009

Do you have those Sundays when you decide to not cook anything but an idea borns in your mind, and it starts to grow bigger, insistent, full of details? Until you find yourself in the kitchen, to watch the clock and say, ok, I have two hours, I think I can make it for lunch!

Mandioc FlourI added mandioc flour (or yucca flour) to this bread to give it a south american taste.

The sequence of events that you describe actually very much resembles the story of my life. Except mine usually starts out by me saying I have to study and thus can t bake anything. And then getting home from class and realizing that the pay-offs from baking far outweigh those from studying. This looks delicious!

It became a ritual for me to bake some kind of bread during the weekend.
Joanne, I remember those feelings from my university years, sometimes some rest (and some fun) is the better choice for a fresh start!
