For my birthday, my Dad and step-Mom got me this book.
(that looks really small--It's called "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day:)
It is amazing.
If you like to make bread--you need to get it. (Either buy it, or see if your Library has it to borrow first)
Basically--you mix together bread ingredients for 5 minutes, let it sit for 2 hours the first time--then you can use the dough for 2 weeks and there is no kneading, no sitting, not rising--just bake.
This was the first loaf:
Just a basic loaf--so good. Crusty outside, all soft in the inside.
The second loaf I decided to add cheese and minced onions (not really following the recipe, since the cheddar bread calls for sugar in the actual mix, I didn't do that)
(The cheese looks really orange, it's just the flash)
I didn't even wait for it to cool down--the butter totally melted on it, it was so good.
Princess B calls it the "best bread ever!"
They have food recipes to do with the breads too (stews and soups etc etc)
There are recipes for chocolate bread, rolls, pizza dough, baguettes, cornbreads etc etc
I'm in love, and probably will get as big as a house from all the bread I'm going to eat
