I do not make bread.
I have tried. I have failed.
I have made rolls flatter than pancakes.
Loaves of bread hard as rocks.
But I love bread.
I wouldn't give up.
I always love to try new things, and decided that this year, 2010, I would conquer bread.
And I think, I finally did.
Garlic and Rosemary Artisan Bread
I cheated, and mixed the dough in a bread maker, let it rise once. Punched it down (don't I sound professional!) and then shaped it and let it raise again. Brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with coarse salt, and then baked at 375° for about 45 min.
