A. In response to your reader’s request for soup bread bowl, I used a recipe from Southern Living magazine which worked very well.  It can be found in the Southern Living Annual Recipes book, from 1999.

A. I am a designer for Home and Garden Party.  Our signature line is hand-turned pottery from Marshall, TX.( along with an entire of line of home decor, candles etc.)  To make the bread bowls she was talking about, I use the stoneware cereal bowl to make them.  Just buy frozen bread dough (or make it) let rise according to pkg instructions, the take the cereal bowl, turn it upside down, grease it, and stretch the bread dough over it (on the outside of the bowl).  after you bake it, just remove the bread from the cereal bowl and you have a cute bread bowl to serve your soup, dip or whatever.  This stoneware goes into the microwave, oven, and dishwasher, refrigerator or freezer.  Very high quality.  Hope this helps her.  By the way, Home and Garden Party is a great home-based business opportunity, too. –Pam Morris   Independent Silver Designer/Recruiter Home and Garden Party
