i finally made the lemon cream cheese scones. forgot scones are typically dry. these were not to bad. the cheese i guess. i would add way more zest to it, even though i brushed on lemon juice and sprinkled with sugar, they were not very lemony. can't post the recipe. if it sounds interesting to you pm me and i will send it to you.

No Knead bread. I used potato water (water left from cooking potatoes) instead of plain old water. Also used unbleached bread flour, salt , sugar and of course yeast.
I dislike bleached flour, to me, it gives a strange taste to the bread.

thats why i always proof first. i have kept yeast in the freezer and used it up to 2 years after expire date and it still proofed. i wonder why yours didn't work.
