Artisan Bread made by me. Yes, really.

Ok, so some of you may have heard me say that my mom is an amazing cook. Amazing. I'm just ok. I don't do everything from scratch, nor am I really a fan of "measuring".

I was turned onto this book (Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day), by my friend Becky, and she said it was really easy. I didn't believe her.

Then, I was looking for a b'day gift for my mom, recently, and decided to give it a try. I ordered 2 because I'm cheap. Cheap? Yes, because by ordering two I could get free super saver shipping....ha! I really know how to beat the system. I'll show them!

Anyway, even after I bought the darn book, I let it sit on the shelf for a few weeks. And, then.....

Magic! I just bit the bullet, made up a batch, and out came this amazing bread. The crust is hard and crusty, which made me think it must be a lump of coal on the inside. Not so. Soft, warm, and yummy inside. I immediately found butter, and the rest is history.

Wouldn't you love more pictures? Hmmm...sorry. No process pics...maybe soon. I guess there's no proof that I didn't just go down to Panera and pick up one of these babies. Believe me, if I can do it, you can too!!

Happy Baking!
