Mom asked me if I was still blogging. “Sort of”. It’s so hard to find the time in my life right now. I have a little guy who loves to be outside or otherwise completely active. . . So, keep checking, some days (like today) you might find something new!
I discovered the best, best, best cookbook several weeks ago. Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I was so excited about the book and all the amazon reviews I read, I ordered it. (My library had a waiting list of 27 people, I couldn’t wait until 2011!!) All who’ve tried the bread are glad I didn’t wait to buy the book.
It’s the easiest, and best tasting & texture bread that I’ve ever made. . .
I haven’t bought a loaf of bread from the store since I bought the book. I’ve made white and whole-wheat, free-form “artisan” bread, and using a loaf pan. It’s yummy. The best part is that one batch is good for three loaves of bread, and the longer it sits in the fridge, the better it gets. I have a loaf that is going in the oven in a few minutes, it’s week old dough, and the sour-dough, airy texture is going to make a great dinner. I even used the bread as “rolls” for french-dip sandwiches (that was a yummy dinner!)
If you are looking for a healthy, slightly obsessive new hobby. . I highly recommend getting the book!!
