I love baking for my family and friends, and though my scedual very well might be hecktic, I still manage to find some time to do some baking.-My family might have something to say if I didn't. So...here are some recipes I have recently mixed up. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did! :D

That would be three cups white unbleached flour, 1 3/4 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon yeast.Add 1 1/2 cups water.
Mix gentle. Take it easy with the stirring. Don’t worry about how messy it is.
Leave that lumpy mess of dough in the bowl (a big bowl because the dough will rise), cover it with plastic wrap, and let it sit on your counter for 12-18 hours (don’t refrigerate).
When the painful wait is over, preheat your oven to 450 degrees. When the oven is hot, put the pot that you’ll be cooking your bread in (with the lid on) into the oven, and let it preheat for 30 minutes. What kind of pot? Enamel baking ware or cast iron is ideal, but anything with a lid and a thick bottom (so the bread won’t burn) can withstand high temperatures is fine.
So. Dump the dough onto a heavily floured surface and gently shape it into a round ball. Transfer it to your heated pot (flour your hands, the dough will be sticky) and cook (lid on) for 30 minutes.
That’s it! So easy! Can you believe it?
