Felicity came over to spend the day with us. Her particular kitchen specialty is sandwiches. She is a sandwich connoisseur! Today's epicurean delight was Boar's Head Oven-Roasted Chicken and mozzarella on crusty bread spread with a mixture of mayonnaise and honey-mustard. This mouth-watering creation was put in the panini press, and then served with Cape Cod chips and organic baby carrots. Delish!
For her "homesteading skills" course this year, Colette is studying and practicing bread baking. Today she tried her hand at the no-knead bread from the New York Times. (Technohubby says, "If you don't knead it, why are we making it." Haha!) Her first attempt has turned out a bit flatter than she liked, but it certainly looked beautiful in all its flour-y glory basking in the afternoon sunshine.
I've tried this recipe before, and can never get it to rise enough to suit me. Does anyone have any suggestions?
