Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day

Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day

This is not really a decluttering life-hack, but it is a simplifying one. Especially for those of us who don't care much for store bread. For the last few weeks I've been nourishing a sourdough starter in my fridge and then dividing it and making bread. It's fun and all, but the bread isn't all that good. I am reading some great things about this book, and everyone seems to like the bread. So I just put in a request to my local Border's to hold a copy for me.

Now I just have to figure out if I have a container that can serve as my "dough bucket" already, or I am going to have to get one. If this works out, I think it means I can pass along my bread maker. Although it is the first present DH ever got me, I am trying not to be so sentimental about stuff.

The best no knead bread ever is the one from the New York Times-
There's the article and the link to the recipe. I make it 3 times a week and it comes out great, with the crisp artisan crust and the big developed holes- so yummy! It proofs overnight and has a yummy flavor. I never buy bread anymore. Try it!
