I've done the randomized selection, and the winner of the Henckels knife giveaway is....
Mary of Owlhaven! Congratulations Mary!
PS: For those of you who don't know her, Mary writes an inspiring blog about making the most of her resources while managing a household of ten (ten!) kids. She's also the author of two books: A Sane Woman's Guide to Raising a Large Family and Family Feasts for $75 a Week.
Also, for any of you who are curious about my methodology for selecting the winner, I simply numbered the entries as they came in and used random.org to select a random winner.
Now, onto some of the bread recipes that particularly caught my eye. The recipes that follow are ones that I hope to make in the coming weeks and months. It was extremely difficult choosing among so many great recipe ideas--and it may turn out that I make them all! Once again, I'm grateful to have such creative and resourceful readers.
1) Jon's Chocolate Beer Bread
Top of the list for two reasons: chocolate and beer.
2) Whole Wheat Flax and Oatmeal Bread from Amber's The Sassy Chronicles
These loaves look like works of art.
3) Jody's entry: Baby Chocolate Brioche
I really look forward to trying my hand at making these little guys!
4) Lady Di's Split Top Butter Loaf
Looks delicious and not too complicated for a bread-newbie like me.
5) Dwane Lay's No-Knead Bread
Looks interesting, particularly with the cornmeal flour.
6) KMAYs and her Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread
I really like the grains and texture of this bread recipe.
Thanks again, everyone, for your ideas and your participation!
