What have you been doing to pass the time during your time at home? Have you been baking up a storm, or finding little projects around the house? If you've been on social media, you've probably noticed everyone and their mom is baking bread right now (that is, if they can find the yeast and flour at the store!), and this weekend we decided it was time to give it a try ourselves.
On Sunday, we had split pea soup simmering on the stove. We knew we just "had" to have some crusty bread to dip in it, but we didn't want to make another trek to the store. Now, we can probably count on one hand the number of times we've made bread before, so we did a little research on good ole' Pinterest, and found some recipes and ideas for novice bakers like us.
We love how this recipe does not require kneading, a bread machine, or any fancy ingredients or equipment for that matter. We also have a particular soft spot for artisanal breads that have that perfect crispy, crunchy crust - and this passed the test for us. We were so pleased with the results, we thought we'd share the recipe with you today. We hope you enjoy!
