No not me silly, I made bread (after all I am Susie Homemaker, right?)! It's been rather dreary here in the Pacific NW, so I pulled out my Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day cookbook and made some bread today (actually I mixed the dough up last night - it took less than 5 minutes). I'm not kidding when I say this is easy peasy. You must try it even if you've never made bread before. The authors recently released a second book with all healthy recipes (aka made with whole grains).
The above bread is the boule from the "master" recipe in the original book. It's actually the only recipe I've made and I've had the book for over a year. I just love it so much and it's so darn tasty. And really, who doesn't like the smell of freshly baked bread all through the house?
Want to make your own? Grab the book (you might even check your local library) or use the basic recipe found here - the recipe starts on page 4.
I thought I'd show off my loaves in hopes of inspiring someone to try something new. Bread at the store can be so darn expensive and it's truly so simple and cheap to make.
Well it's back to sewing for me. I have two boys that need a few new pairs of pants, then maybe I'll get my turn for something new in my closet...fingers crossed!
