I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

One Hour French Bread

What do you mean, you do not have time to make bread? You can make this one while getting other stuff ready for dinner.

1 tbsp honey
1  1/2 tsp salt
1  1/2 cup warm tap water
1 tbsp yeast
4 - 4  1/2 cups flour

Put the honey and salt in the bottom of a very large bowl. Add warm water and sprinkle the yeast on top and leave it for 20 minutes.

Go back to what you were making for supper.

After 20 minutes add the flour to the yeast mixture and knead a few minutes. Don't freak out, it's easy! Once the dough is nice and elasticy cover with a tea towel and walk away for 20 minutes.

Supper must be almost ready by now.

Peek under the tea towel, the dough has risen eh?

So transfer dough to a baking sheet that has been sprinkled with cornmeal, snip it with scissors a few times.

Put a pan of water on the bottom rack, the bread on the middle rack and bake in a 400 F oven for 20 - 25 minutes.

Now you have time to sit down and have a glass of wine.

Fresh hot bread in just ONE hour!
You're welcome : )
