These were some hot pads I whipped up to go along with a cookbook I gave as a gift. I’ve been obsessing over bread for a few months now. Baguettes, sourdough, challah, pizza, cinnamon buns–all manner of bread-inspired dinners, all because of the amazing book “Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day.” Who knew that one cookbook could revolutionize your life in the kitchen (okay, maybe some people already knew this, but I myself, had yet to have such an experience)? When a friend of mine came over one day literally evangelizing this book, I promised I would give it a try. The dough literally takes five minutes to make. There’s a couple hours to proof it, but that doesn’t involve any steps from the baker. So, try it, if you’ve ever been interested in making your own bread. I swear it’s easier than a bread machine, which takes up so much space! The authors of the book have kindly posted the basic recipe on their site, above, but the book is well worth it.
