Yummy Bread

Hello. I'm the wife Paul mentioned in one of his posts. He set me up as an admin on here and asked me to mess around with the layout of the blog. So the changes were my idea. If you have comments about the changes, please let me know. Paul also wants me to also start posting, so here's my first post.

Paul got a new book for Christmas called "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day." So naturally I had to try it out. Our son Alex and I baked a couple loaves of bread today and this is how they turned out.
It took us about 10 minutes to make the bread dough yesterday. We put the dough in the fridge until we were ready to bake it today. It took about 2 minutes to form the dough into loaves, let it rest for 40 minutes, and bake it for 30. We have enough dough leftover in the fridge for at lest 3 more loaves, which we will probably bake later this week.Our family really likes homemade bread. You can see what's left of the last 2 loaves we baked the other day in the picture too. The crust is chewy, but not too dry or really hard. The inside is moist, firm, and perfect for sopping up soup according to Paul.
I have problems posting someone's recipe without their permission, so here is a link to their website where you can find out more information about their book. Artisan in 5.


  1. Hello there. That looks great. How are the other recipes in the book?



  2. To be honest, we haven't tried any of the others yet. We have been too busy with work and family life, but we plan on trying the pizza crust as soon as I get to go grocery shopping again. I'll let you know how that turns out.
    They also have a Challah recipe that looks good. Actually, it all looks good to me. I plan on trying the recipes as I can. I'll keep posting to let you know how they turn out.
