Bread Baking and other Weekend Adventures

by Edie Wadsworth on February 26, 2010


This weekend, I plan to: 1. Embark on a new bread baking adventure with my newest book  Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. The luscious loaf that graces the screen above needs a little less salt—-otherwise, it is nearly perfection.  More to come on that next week. 2. Ponder the wonderful ladies I met […]

by Edie Wadsworth on February 24, 2010

This is a public service announcement. Following this advice will ensure that your car rides to and  fro,  from soccer to dance to the dentist, etc.  will be nothing but pure family harmony and bliss.  I don’t know about you but my children will argue about almost anything in the car.   So it’s come […]


catching up

by Edie Wadsworth on February 22, 2010


i enjoyed my brief media fast.  if you’ve never ‘unplugged’ for a few days, you should try it.  it’s harder and easier than you think. i kept a paper journal–which was kinda fun. i wrote down 7 or 8 ideas for new blog posts.    you can take the girl away from her blog but […]


Ash Wednesday

by Edie Wadsworth on February 18, 2010

The following is taken from the Ash Wednesday liturgy used at our church today.   It was presented in litany form but I’m sharing it with you as a prayer. Let us confess our sins before God and in the presence of one another. Most merciful God, we confess to You that by our own […]

by Edie Wadsworth on February 15, 2010


Lent begins this week on Ash Wednesday and lasts 40 days with it’s culmination in Easter. The church we attend, Our Savior Lutheran Church, will be observing a traditional Ash Wednesday service at noon on Wednesday and we invite any of you who are local to attend. This is a repost from last February and […]



My lovely daughter and I went to see Brandi Carlile at the historic Bijou Theatre in Knoxville on Wednesday.   We ate at Nama Sushi—which is todiefor—- and then sat numbstruck at the raw talent of Ms. Brandi. She claims country western roots and is a self-proclaimed super-fan of Elton John.  Her lyrics are timeless […]

Blissdom Deconstructed: Live, Write, Connect

by Edie Wadsworth on February 8, 2010


When I left Opryland Hotel on Saturday, I was full to the brim with emotion. I couldn’t speak and I fought back tears  for forty miles. It was much harder to leave my friends than I thought. This online community that I find myself in is incredible and Blissdom is the perfect chance to blur the […]


Oh when the saints….

by Edie Wadsworth on February 7, 2010


I am exhaused from the weekend, thrilled to be home with my family and anxious to share my thoughts about Blissdom. I have so much to ‘show and tell’ that I think it’ll take more than one post. But since today is Super Bowl day, I just had to share my little video of Harry […]

Blissdom Bound Y’all

by Edie Wadsworth on February 4, 2010


As I was putting the finishing touches on my little love gifts to pass out at Blissdom, I couldn’t help but be reminded of my very southern roots.   I made the cutest little bookmarks and very heavily-iced mocha cupcakes for my friends {old, new and yet to be made}, all the while listening to […]


The Lure of the “Inner Ring”

by Edie Wadsworth on February 1, 2010


{one of my favorite inner rings, forged by time and trial and good fortune} It can be intimidating to go to a meeting of five hundred smart, opinionated, quite successful women.  Let alone women bloggers: that’s another category altogether.    And when 500 women gather at Blissdom this week, there’ll inevitably be 100 little groups […]
