As you know, I am currently hosting a blog event for Bette Hagman. I announced this event on August 18th, but you are welcome to participate anytime until the deadline, September 3rd. How can you participate?
Over the next two weeks from August 20th to September 3rd bake something from one of Bette Hagmanâ€™s cookbooks, and take a really beautiful photo of the baked good that you produce. I would like to think of each photo as a flower bouquet honoring Bette Hagman, and so include at least one beautiful flower (and possibly a flower bouquet) in the background of your photo or placed on the baked good like the photo I posted here. Post your photo on your blog along with a short (one or two line) note on the impact Bette Hagman had on your life and comment here with the link or email it to me at mehere.jpg. Please download the â€œBaked in Honorâ€ tag and post it along with your post. If you feel comfortable doing so, include a wallet sized photograph of yourself in the post or email. If you donâ€™t have a blog, thatâ€™s ok, just send me the photo(s) and your message. Please size your photo to be about the same size as the photo posted here.
For now, here’s my submission, a photo of Bette Hagman’s Buttermilk Garbanzo Bread with a bouquet I bought at the weekly farmer’s market, taken on my balcony. The bread was delicious, as always- and I enjoyed it with margarine, tomato jam, and even in a egg sandwich with mayo and tomato jam… Sounds weird but it was just what I wanted. The bread also won high marks with my non-celiac DH… Thank you, Bette- for showing me that gluten free bread can be a delicious, special treat even for those who don’t have to eat gluten free!
