Rustic White Bread (An Inspirational Tale)

Today, we made our first loaf of no-knead bread. It was a simple recipe with only 5 main ingredients (bread flour, water, salt, yeast, and a whole lot of time). The whole process took a full 24 hours, but the result was so mind-blowing that we decided to make a blog.

Here is the inspirational loaf:

And here we are, cyberspace!

You must be thinking, "Wow, that bread must really have been life-changing" ...and you're right. We made new life plans as we took the bread out of the oven. If financial data sales and teaching don't work out, we know we'll have a fall-back as bread bakers.

This blog will track the rises and falls (bread jokes! already!) of baking in our tiny New York City kitchen.

  2. The bread looks wonderful, though I do wish a bit more personal antics of the trials and tribulations were included. Will certainly be following your progress as your brave the rough and tumble world of internet baking.

  3. how did you decide who had their name first, SARAH?
