Bread Making Adventure



I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!  I haven't posted in some time and wanted share my recent bread making experience.  I haven't made bread in many years and from what I could remember it seemed like a lot of work.  Well I've been eying bread recipes on Pinterest.  Have you tried Pinterest yet?  I love it.  Pinterest is a great tool for finding new recipes and saving other things too that you may want to buy or try.  This is a bread recipe that was posted, so yesterday I decided to give it a try.  It stated that this bread could be mixed together in under 2 minutes.  I thought, "Is that all, even I should be able to do this!"  Well, I was in at that point.

Her bread is gorgeous.......can you call bread gorgeous?  Mine didn't turn out quite as pretty as hers, but she's an experienced baker and I'm not.  Here's my version. 


I must confess, the first one I made stuck in the pot, was nice but I just couldn't get it out of the darn pot.  Where did I go wrong?   I even put cornmeal in the bottom to help....also I used my stainless steel pot, hum-mm, maybe that is where I went wrong.    My mom had sent me a gift card for Christmas, so off I went and bought an enameled covered cast iron pot.  With this pot the above bread just fell out.  Now I can't wait to try all the different variations with this recipe. 

Do you bake bread?  Have any good recipes??
