Crusty, no-knead, artisan bread, flavored with fresh rosemary and buttery, roasted garlic!
I finished 90% of my Christmas shopping this past weekend. Do you have any idea what an accomplishment that is for me? Considering last year, I did it all 2-3 days before Christmas. I’ve been a procrastinator pretty much my entire life..any time papers or projects were due in school, I was always the girl that waited until the night before & would end up pulling an all-nighter. I usually wait until the last minute to do pretty much everything, I don’t even know why. Because then I’m scrambling and it can get stressful.
Lately though, I’ve been trying a lot harder to get things done well ahead of time, like my xmas cards!, and it feels so much better! I know, all you type a’s are cringing at the procrastination and intentionally putting myself in a stressful situation, I can’t help it, I like to live on the edge 😉
This crusty, delicious bread though? That takes a small amount of planning ahead of time, not much, but enough that you can’t do what I did yesterday, and start frantically searching around for a quick bread recipe for dinner. This bread is mouthwatering…crusty on the outside, soft and airy on the inside, loaded with buttery roasted garlic and fresh rosemary. It rises for a good amount of time, then cooks in your dutch oven, and what results is golden brown perfection.
You can eat this with whatever you desire, I like to sit on my kitchen floor with it loaded in butter too, but the recipe coming tomorrow is what I served it up with, this particular time! 😉 Enjoy!
