When I was younger, I loved to cook. I loved to bake. I loved experimenting in the kitchen to come up with something new. But, as the years went by, I had less and less time available for messing around with food. Home-baked bread was replaced by bread-machine bread. And when that got to be too much trouble, I went back to store-bought bread. Things I used to make from scratch were soon replaced by mixes. And when that got to be too much trouble, I just started buying pre-made stuff in the freezer section. It's not as good for me. It's certainly not as fun. But I just don't have the time any more.
But then I got addicted to cooking sites like Foodiddy and baking sites like Joy The Baker, and was assaulted with goodies so amazing-looking that I simply HAD to start baking again. Last night I brought a shit-load of work home with me, but then I happened upon a recipe for Cinnamon-Sugar Pull-Apart Bread from Joy The Baker. It looked too delicious to ignore, so I dropped everything and baked a loaf.
So there I was, eating mind-blowingly delicious Cinnamon-Sugar Pull-Apart Bread while Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was on... all while my pile of work sat there unfinished. And as I thought about how much trouble I was in, I began wondering how many other lives have been ruined by people getting all distracted because of blogs like Foodiddy and Joy The Baker...
If you would like to ruin your life too, you can visit the most excellent cooking blog Foodiddy here. And if that's not enough of a distraction, Joy The Baker can be found here. And you can go here if you want to make that stupidly-awesome Cinnamon-Sugar Pull-Apart Bread.

It honestly took me awhile to realize that “CONDMON: RED” was actually “Condition: Red” Hooray for crappy fonts of the future!
Thanks for the laugh, though! Great way to end a work day!
haaaaaaaahahahahaaaaa! Love this post 🙂
and why, that pull-apart bread really DOES look delicious! Unfortunately I am unable to experiment in the kitchen right now, and even if I could, sweet empty carbs are a no-no thanks to gestational diabetes that has reared its ugly head during my pregnancy. I’m going to have to just take note of your links and visit ’em later.
Damn does that bread look good!
Damn! Khan’s starship is a lot like an old apartment I had – we couldn’t have the bathroom light on AND run the microwave or toaster!
And check out Kirk’s perm!
Gah! I could go on forever with this!
This was THE funniest thing I’ve seen all day. Well done.
Best.Post.Ever. Thank you for the shout out and for putting that pull apart bread in my head now 🙂 I’m thinkin’ how quickly can “I” get that loaf in my oven…that sounds a little dirty and I like it!
Funniest. Coolest. Post. Ever. Also; the bread looks really delicious. I am heading there to visit the site. Excellent, my friend.
It’s just like a real plot of a star trek episode
I’m not even a Star Trek fan (OMG, that *was* Star Trek, right?) but that made me laugh out loud. Brilliant! And now I have to make some cinnamon-sugar pull-apart bread. I’m blaming the 5 lbs I’ll gain on you.
Perhaps there would be time for fresh-baked breads if you didn’t spend your time rewriting the Wrath of Kahn. Not that it wasn’t brilliant. I’m just sayin’.
ha! i’m now terrified of clicking on that link.
Best thing ever.
Also, Khan’s failure being due to glorious cinnamon-sugar pull-apart bread makes a lot more sense than him being unable to think tactically in three dimensions. Thus, you have now improved the best Star Trek movie; well done!
Now to coax my kids into making this bread….
A brilliant mash-up! If only Bad Monkey could have shown up in the background crew.
I, too, spent the evening after work baking. My experience was not quite as inspiring, nor were the results as entertaining.
That is so inconsiderate of you. How difficult would it be to have put together a panel where Kirk convinces Saavik to spare Earth by not participating in Dancing with the Stars?? Seriously, how difficult?? And you call yourself a friend of the people.
1) Best blog post EVER.
2) I don’t like baking, really, I’m more of a cook, but I am tempted to make this damned bread recipe. I really really am.
3) But, later. I’ll make it later.
Awesome!! Now I want that bread in my oven! Damn you, Dave!
You are hilarious! I love it!
Haha… Dave, you’re still the coolest guy I know… 😉
OMG!! I am drooling on myself – now I HAVE to go home and make this F!@#$%G bread today – and then throw in the ST: WOK disc…food and sci-fi porn together LOL.
Thanks Dave! You made my day!!
