Smitten for Bitten

At the beginning of February, Mark Bittman – author of the New York Times Minimalist food column and authority on “How to Cook Everything” – launched a new blog called Bitten. It has quickly become one of my favorite blogs to read on a daily basis. Bittman’s style of cooking, evident by the name of his NYT column, is approachable and appeals to the home cook who is looking for simple, casual, no-fuss recipes.

Case in point – Quick Whole Wheat & Molasses Bread. Seven ingredients, minimal preparation and most of the cooking time is spent in the oven. The results were hearty, slightly sweet, and delicious – especially when topped with homemade honey butter*. I am now equally addicted to both Bitten and this bread.
