I baked bread! Finally. I’ve owned Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day for almost a year and have watched Catherine (aka Food Snob) bake beautiful bread loaves, pitas, english muffins and more from it. I was so jealous of her creations that I needed to have the book right away. I dug in and read all the instructions, but never actually made anything.
I know I needed a push, so I joined the Bake-A-Long that Catherine and Victoria started. I missed the first assignment, but finally got started on our second assignment (with some encouragement from Catherine and Victoria), which focused on Vermont Cheddar & Oatmeal breads.
Behold, my first loaf of Vermont Cheddar:
Who knew I could make bread without a breadmaker? It was so incredibly easy that I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner.
I’m super excited that there’s another batch of dough waiting in my fridge. I’m totally going to make these cute cheddar rolls that Catherine made.
If you’re interested in joining the Bake-A-Long with Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, just let one of us know. We’re looking forward to discovering new recipes from the book and would welcome suggestions.
