Baking Bread Over A Fire

I recently bought a new cast iron Dutch Oven. It was on sale on Amazon for $35 (nope, I’m not sponsored by Amazon nor am I an Amazon affiliate) but I couldn’t resist buying it. While I was at the cabin, I figured it was a good opportunity to use the Dutch oven in an […]

The EASIEST No Knead Bread. Ever.

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted much on here over the last two weeks. The truth is I’ve been battling some significant personal issues during that time. Too many sleepless nights.

The first one was a French-style, quick rise bread with yeast and no sourdough. I mixed together the ingredients: water, brown sugar, yeast, and unbleached white flour. I […]

Making Sourdough Bread

I’m going way out to the wilderness of baking bread. I’ve created my own sourdough starter! I’ll tell more about the sourdough starter later but for now, here’s my first attempt at making bread with my starter. I used a half cup of my starter, 3 cups of unbleached flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt […]
