I recently made my first loaf of bread. It was something I had always wanted to do but never did. The process intimidated me so. In my desire to try things new and step outside of my comfort zone I decided to give it a try. After all, worse came to worse and I ruined it I would simply toss it. I'd never know if I could or couldn't if I didn't give it a try. So I did, and I couldn't get over how incredibly easy it was! There are many different recipes out there and really the hardest thing about them all is not the mixing of ingredients, but letting the dough sit long enough to rise! This recipe is simple. Hands on time is minimal, the wait time is fairly significant - you have to let the dough rise twice and then another hour to bake... but you know what they say about those who wait... and this is something worth waiting for!
