No-Knead Bread

Okay, so I'm smack in the middle of "Pantry Week" and I've vowed to not purchase any new groceries until it's over. That was all well and good, until I remembered I wanted some bread for the leftover meatloaf to make sandwiches. So what was I to do? Make some.

I have never made bread outside of a bread machine. I've always thought about it, but have just never tried it. Even when I purchased the No-Knead cookbook. And even when i saw this recipe online. I just didn't try it. Until now.

And let me tell you - I'm kicking myself for not doing it up until now. Seriously, listen to me. If you have not tried this recipe, do it. Right now. Get up, go to the kitchen, and start this. Why? Because it's easy and the finished product is delicious.

This gorgeous loaf of bread literally cost me about 10 minutes of actual labor. The rest was spent either minding it's own business overnight on the counter, or cooking. The recipe is foolproof.

Oh, and the bread. Absolutely delicious. It has a lovely thick chewy crust, and the inside is delicious. It's exactly what I want my bread to be. Seriously. I mean, just look at it!

Anyway, here's the link to the recipe. I followed it exactly as written, using parchment paper. I plan on making some variations for the next batch. Enjoy! And if you try it, let me know!

Hi there! I just found your blog from the Healthy Living Blog website and see that you live in Harrisburg. Me too!! I actually live in Mechanicsburg, about 15 min outside of the city. I am working on putting together a H-burg blogger meet up in the city next month. Please let me know if you might be interested.
Take care! ;)

your blog today is so ironic because i just posted yesterday for people to start looking in their pantries because you can always find something yummy to make instead of running to the store and spending more money. I'm also starting a pantry photo contest to. granted i just started blogging um 3 days ago, so im pretty new at this.
