Since all of us kids left home, my dad has discovered a new talent. He makes the most beautiful, and tasty whole grain breads and rolls you could imagine. I am convinced that he could be a pro if he wanted to. His precision and attention to detail make him an ideal candidate for taking up baking, and it pays off with almost always perfect looking products. Growing up, I was the family baker. While I am not as concerned with following the recipe to a T as he is, the love of baking is something we share.
For the past few birthdays, he’s picked out artisan baking related items for me. This year, he and mom bought me this hefty volume called Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I’ve been itching to try it out, and it just seemed like a good day to do it. It really does only take around 5 minutes to mix it up and set it aside to do its thing. Talk about appealing on overly busy days!
I think I’m going to work my way through the book and try out as many of the recipes as I can. Perhaps I’ll report about it here as I go.
