This post is for Jenica. I tried her bread recipe for dinner tonight and it was soooo good! I had to plan ahead a little.... (the bread has to rise for almost a whole day) but I must say my result was much better than all the recipes I have attempted out of this book. And, Jenica's bread only takes a few minutes to make, whereas these breads sucked days out of my life.
So, if you are looking for a great recipe to make crispy-crusted, yet moist and chewy artisan bread, click on Jenica's link. I tried mine with half whole wheat and some oat bran, and tonight Aidan and I mixed up another loaf with apples and cinnamon for dinner tomorrow.
Note- I was trying to take a picture of the loaf of bread, but Aidan and James thought that would be too boring, thus Aidan's head is in the pictures. But I think that makes the bread look even better, don't you?
