breadI have been hearing about these no-knead, overnight, artisan Dutch oven breads for months (years?). I read the posts and tutorials, and I was on board. It looked like magic. But alas, I had no Dutch oven. So I carried on, making bread as I always had, fantasizing about round crusty loaves.

When my Mama gave me this cast iron Dutch oven for Christmas, it was a no brainer. I would make the good crusty bread.dutchoven

I followed this recipe, and the family deems it a success. And holy easiness, Batman!

I have a batch of dough rising for my best friend, as I speak. I can’t stop imagining the possibilities. Vive le pain!closebread
