We Made Bread!!

I made a major life breakthrough! Finally overcoming longstanding obstacles. The perfect New Years Day resolution! I made bread. Though this may seem such a minor thing to some, I on the other hand am yeast afflicted. Yeast impaired, a Yeast-ochondriac. If I read a recipe and it calls for yeast I know to turn the page and move on. I am a yeast flop.... until today!!!! WooHoo! 
A bread recipe that had yeast in the ingredients... but looked easy, as if even I could do it.
So I tried it....
Behold! It has risen!

Getting ready for the cast iron pot

Just out of the oven

Cooling on the rack

Freshly sliced... and YUMMY!

I would recommend this recipe to anyone. I found it on Pinterest. The blog post and recipe is here 
I will try some of the other versions as well. 

Chicken Parm Meatballs.
 We made another pinned recipe to have with our bread. The chicken parm meatballs.
Both recipes are keepers!

Bon appetit!

  1. Yummmm. You must be quite a cook to handle home made bread. Don and I tried it several years ago and it was a total flop. Couldn't get it to rise hardly at all. Tried the oven method and that didn't work either. Good going friends.
