During the first storm which came through on a Saturday, I decided to make some bread. I found this recipe for 4 Hour Baguettes and since I have a thing for baking bread by hand, I had to try it!
I don't have any pictures of the mixing or rising dough, but it was pretty straightforward. It just required some patience and not too much watching or poking...
They came out of the oven looking nice and authentic (maybe not quite as pretty as true French baguettes, but not bad for a first try!)
Then the past couple of days we were visited by a blizzard! Juno, to be exact. And with the wind howling and the snow flying past the windows, I thought it was a good day to warm up the kitchen with another batch of bread. This time, we needed bread for sandwiches so I went with a wheat bread recipe from the cookbook my grandma gave me as a wedding shower gift.
Until then, it might be time for another batch of pretzels ... hmm...
Do you bake bread? If so, what is your favorite recipe?
If not, what keeps you from giving it a try?
