It's such a rarity in the "online" world. So I'm thankful to you guys!

Anyway it's 1am here and I'm still waiting on my final rise to be "good enough". I only have 2 bread pans and the recipe produced 3 loaves worth, so I took the remaining third and put into a muffin tin to make some yeast rolls. Since I'm experimenting I thought I'd cook the yeast rolls first to see if the dough was "ready". They came out pretty good but I do think I need to let it rise a bit longer.

My hubby was trying to keep the vigil with me but he gave up and went to bed. I'm hoping I can reward him with some yummy fresh bread in the morning!

I'm actually very found of trolls and have been known to spend time doing so but I have other places for such acts in which those places are very easy to do so.

yeah, two pounds.
well I am moving across country in like 3 months and just encase the one package doent make it, I am leaving the other one sealed so that I will still have a bag and don't have to wonder around looking for it. 1lb will probably last me just over a year..so if it makes the trip, I really won't have to worry about buying yeast for awhile..unless I go back to making pizzas and breads every other day.

Do you have refridgeration? If you put the dough in the fridge it will rise very slowly. In the morning you can allow it to warm up and bake it off. The real advantage of this is that the slow rise works to develop the flavor of the loaf. I wish I had thought to mention it earlier. Sorry.

The NY Times no knead bread recipe is good for an overnight loaf. It has been discussed here, just do a search (don't know how to paste a link using my iPad or I would find it for you) here for the recipe.

I did have it in the fridge but it was nearly done rising by the time I was thinking of going to bed, so I was worried based on comments here that if I left it overnight it would rise too much. I decided to stay up late and try to finish it. I don't think I gave it enough time on the final rise. It turned out really tasty but just a tad dense. Next time I'll start it earlier in the day (I started late afternoon) and make sure I use water that's not quite as hot.

But all things considered.....tasty fresh bread!



My husband and my dog both approve, the jury of my cats is still out.

haha yeah, the cats verdict will really be the final one for this.

I would for sure make french toast out of that, dense bread is great for that one...and either way, homemade bread that is a little dense is still home made bread either way.

This is how mine usually looks..slice from one of my last loafs.

THAT'S what I was going for! I'll give this recipe another try learning from my mistakes this time.

So my husband just got a slice out for a snack. He set it down on the counter for a moment while he poured himself a glass of tea. In the 15 seconds that his back was turned, one of my cats stole his bread.

Then the dog took it from her!

It seems everyone is satisfied with the outcome except me. That's usually how it goes!

"This is delicious!"
"I can make it better!"

I love this one from food.com. Sahara Sand bread Recipe #187536. I double it to make two loaves. It freezes well too. I use this bread for garlic toast, croutons and bread crumbs. Great texture and flavor.

Beautiful looking bread you two!!

I tend to make a denser loaf of bread due to all the flours and such I put in mine.

Taylor ham, lettuce and tomato Sammie on homemade bread



Buttered homemade Cinnamon raisin bread fresh out of the oven
