Good Bread, Good Blog

I've added a new blog to my sidebar under "Other. " The blog is Alexandra's Kitchen. Alexandra has a wonderful recipe for Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I must warn you that it does take a bit more time than that, but it is a great, crusty, knead-free bread.

Once you make the starter, with yeast, water, salt and flour, you can keep it in the fridge and use some each day for baking. It is a great way to use your pizza stone, if you have one. If not, you don't have to use it.

You can sit the dough out for the required 40 minutes while you prepare dinner and heat the oven.

Great for those dark, February evenings.

Note: The recipe itself comes from Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François' book called Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking. Check out their website,

I love home made bread. Once upon a time I used to make it a lot. Then I even bought a bread maker. Then it began to collect dust. And now the saga is over. I know you will enjoy it and I also know kneading is out of the question for you for a bit.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
