Bread Baker Extraordinaire

Ok, so that’s not actually accurate. As I have stated before, I can bake bread. It is edible, healthy and tasty. But I am on a quest to bake “really good” bread. I have access to a wood-fired oven- that is a substantial tool in the “really good” bread making process. I have several cookbooks on hand to enhance my skills and recipes. So… I’m ready to go.

Today I used the recipe for ...

Highlights From A Busy Autumn

This fall was chock full of special occasions here at Maine Wood Heat and in our family.

This event brought together lots of local folks for an afternoon of wood fired pizza, ping pong and socializing. The shop was transformed to create a festive stage for the event. Balloons and Christmas lights livened up the space where ...

A Family Affair

On Friday, Albie, my kids and I headed to Belfast to the Maine Fare, local food event. The morning was busy with food preparation and gear gathering for a full day away from home with three kids and a mobile oven. We arrived in Belfast with the event in full swing, the town looking festive and well attended. The sun was shining and there was a feeling of fall in the air. Albie expertly maneuvered the oven ...

Broccoli Soup and Blueberry Pie

The broccoli is ready! I have a smallish garden plot at my father-in-law’s house this year and I planted lots of broccoli because I love it. I’ve watched the plants grow, getting stronger and larger as the summer sun warmed them and the rains gave them water. I don’t get to tend the garden as much as I would like, but I check on it at least once a week. My last couple garden visits rewarded ...

Cooking Country Ribs

For many of my young adult years I was vegetarian. I became adept at cooking vegetarian and vegan meals filled with vegetables, beans and grains, but I never had reason to learn how to cook meat. As I reintegrated meat into my diet it was generally an ingredient in a dish, but not a main part of a meal. To this day, cooking cuts of meat feels a bit foreign to me.

Bagels

Bagels hold a dear place in my heart. Lots of my food memories include a bagel as part of a simple meal. Some of those bagels were good, but some were perfection.
I first made bagels while working at The Morning Glory Bakery in Bar Harbor. The owner, Ralph, had the dough all mixed and ready when I arrived, bright and early on those warm summer days. After cutting, shaping, resting, boiling and baking the ...

Cottage Heaters:  Impressive yet petite

As the economy slowly claws its way back to something resembling its former self, interested masonry heater clients are beginning to redefine themselves.  We’re fielding less questions about house plans and more questions like:   How can I convert my existing fireplace into something more efficient?   How can I do more with less?

More and more, we’re hearing from ...
