Crusty No-Knead Bread

(But you do NEED it! Oye, moving on…)

Hello readers. Remember me? No? I understand. I’ve neglected my blog for the past couple of months. Sorry about that.

Micah and I went on a road trip to Bloomington, Indiana.

This was the car rode home. And while it was an incredibly fun weekend, I was in need of Starbucks to make the trip home. I was runnin’ on empty.

When I got home, I found this gem while grocery shopping.

Hello, beautiful. Got plans this weekend?

Oh yes she does.

By way of making up my absence to you, I’m going to share this Ah-mazing bread recipe I made yesterday. Then, I want you to go ahead and start prepping it for dinner tomorrow night. You can thank me tomorrow.

I’ll be playing around with it even more. I’ve got ideas for adding flax seed, cheese, herbs and so much more! It’s that great of a bread. You can follow the link to the original recipe, where Janet shares her ideas and creations.
