I Baked Bread! Artisan Bread!

And it's so pretty and good!

When I saw this post , I knew I wanted to try this bread. It only has 4 ingredients! So I got myself a dutch oven, made the dough last night - took all of five minutes and let it rise overnight. When it came time to cook dinner today, I followed the instructions in the blog post and into the oven my bread went with hopeful anticipation. After a short while, I could smell the baking bread. I wanted to take a peek, but held off for the 30 mins. When the timer went off and I lifted the lid, I got a huge smile on my face and started doing the happy dance, singing, "I baked bread, I baked bread"  It was so easy! So easy I'm mixing up another batch tonight, but this loaf will have rosemary and olive oil in it. I have a few other ideas too.

lemon and rosemary
cranberry, orange and almond
cinnamon, raisin and walnuts
garlic and cheese

So many different breads to try!

I've mentioned several times that I have a love/hate relationship with cooking. This is one of the times I loved it. I love trying new recipes and the recipe actually coming out the way it should! Experiences like this make me want to find other new recipes to try!
