2 cups very hot water 2 T sugar 1 T salt 1/3 cup oil In a small bowl mix: ½ c warm water 1 T sugar 2 T yeast Add 3 cups flour to large bowl and mix well. Add small bowl mixture to large bowl and add 3 more cups flour. Mix until smooth. Knead a bit every 10 minutes for 1 hour. Divide and shape into 2 loaves. (You don't need to let it rise again!) I just make free form loaves and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350’ for 30-35 minutes.
Ever cook or bake something new and exciting, only to forget about it and never get to make it again? Ever spent an hour sorting through scribbled on papers, trying to find that certain recipe? Ever forced yourself to turn off Food Network because your shopping list is already WAY too long? Or opened your kitchen cupboard to be greeted by an avalanche of cookbooks, pamphlets, and index cards?
This is the journey of a woman who loves to cook, bake, and try something new. Here is where I hope to get organized. Here is where I hope to become skilled. My adventures don't always work out (just ask the hubby), but they sure are fun!
