Our Daily Bread

Today Lifehacker brings us a ridiculously good idea. You make and refrigerate a week-or-two supply of no-knead bread dough. When you’re ready for a fresh loaf, you pull off a chunk and stick it in the oven for half an hour. Voila! Cheap, convenient, delicious, homemade bread! These folks turned this idea into a cookbook.

Funny, I was just looking that book up the other day. Someone handed me a recipe at the Mill City Farmer's Market two weeks ago that involves a whole-grain freshly-milled version. I think home bread making is really taking off.

I'll give it a try. Finally, a non-waffle use for my KitchenAid mixer!

@Jennifer I sure hope so - reexamination of the premiums people pay (in $ and quality) for convenience is something I can get behind.

It's pretty lame, but my new favorite toy is an enameled cast-iron Dutch oven for this bread. Must be a recession or something. I've also noticed some discussion about home-made yogurt, which I used to think was a 70's health-food craze. Then I figured out I could make it by the half-gallon in a slow cooker. Now I wonder what marketing genius convinced the American public that yogurt is something you buy!

As long as that's the only part of the 70's coming back, I'm OK. Well, maybe they could bring back the Dharma Initiative too.
