Homemade Bread!!!

I made bread! I've tried once before, with miserable results, and I don't like doing things I'm not good at! So, in Mother Earth News a few months ago there was an article about artisan bread, that can be made without kneading and all the to-do. So, bought the book and gave it a try! This works!! 'Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day' by Zoe Francois and Jeff Hertzberg is going to change our bread eating habits! Now, it will never be 'five minutes a day'...but it is pretty fast and easy! You make a wet dough - enough for five loaves. You just mix, no kneading. Let is rise a couple of hours, refrigerate and make loaves over the next week. To make a loaf, you pull off a piece, shape it, let it sit on the counter for up to ninety minutes, then bake for thirty minutes. You need a pizza stone, corn meal is good, I found. But this really works! We also bought their book 'Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day', which incorporates more grains, veggies and fruits. We're going to be eating a lot more home made bread! Click the Amazon bar at the right to get a copy, too! Are you ready for home made bread!
