breaking bread


i consider myself to a decent cook but baking is something that i've never really been able to crack. if i'm being honest, the precise nature of it is more than a little bit intimidating. baked goods have to taste and look delicious too!  but, february is national bake for your family month, so i'm challenging myself to bake something that terrifies me once a week.

this week i'm tackling bread. there's all of that measuring and waiting and kneading and waiting. and praying that after all of that work that it doesn't come out like a brick! while browsing pinterest, i came across this recipe. no knead and the promise of freshly baked bread on a gray and rainy day. sold!  

the results are delicious!!

i think this is my new favorite thing- fresh baked bread topped with ricotta and honey!  four ingredients and 10 minutes hands-on prep time. it's so easy and so worth it. do yourself a favor, go make this. you can thank me tomorrow.

while strawberry season is technically over i can't seem to quit them! they are without a doubt my favoarite fruit and i love that they can go sweet or savory.

i like to cook but the precise nature of baking intimidates me. i'm determined to change that! i decided to make some strawberry muffins. muffins are kind of fool proof...right?

 they were pretty simple to make, even for a novice baker. they were prepped, baked and cooled before the end of rowan's nap. and the verdict-delicious!
