Hello...my name is Stephanie and I'm addicted to /sniff/ bread baking...

Admitting it IS the first step, isn't it? Mother Earth News sent out a another fabulous newsletter with this article about how you, too, could have freshly baked bread in only 5 minutes a day!! NO WAY, I thought to myself..IMPOSSIBLE! I will have to just try this for myself!

And I did try it...all weekend long. I made 5 loaves of yummy artisan bread this weekend. I've also started another batch to use throughout the week. Ummm...hmmmm...I'm officially a member of Bread Bakers Anonymous (BBA). Anyone else want to join my club?

The great thing is that the original recipe can be tweaked for almost endless possibilities. The article also talks about making cinnamon rolls and pizza crust with this same starter. WOW! Try it...you'll like it.

(I'll try to upload some steamy photos of fresly baked bread for my fellow BBA members in the next few days! ;-)

In other news, the girls and I made some homemade soaps to give as Christmas gifts. We included Tea Tree Oil as a natural anti-bacterial. It smells great!

I actually just reserved the artisian bread in 5 min a day book about 5 days ago... there was a long wait list, but 10 books, so hopefully soon it will be my turn...
