Welcome to my common submit sharing inventive methods I’m making do with what we’ve. I typically share most of these issues on Instagram tales, however I do know a number of you don’t have Instagram or don’t examine it frequently, so I’m transcribing a few of my weekly tales into weblog posts to present you inspiration and encouragement for tactics you may make do and use what you will have.
I used to bake bread very frequently — typically a number of occasions per week. Nonetheless, up to now few years, I hadn’t baked bread as a lot as a result of I’d been discovering so many nice offers and markdowns on entire wheat/entire grain bread. I’d simply purchase additional loaves when I discovered a very good sale and we at all times had some within the freezer.
However just lately, I hadn’t discovered as many good markdowns on bread and I had really gotten to the very finish of my freezer bread stash. So I first made do-it-yourself bread within the bread machine. Then, impressed by my buddy, Kate, I made a decision to strive my hand at making 5-Minute Artisan Bread.
If you happen to’ve been round right here a extremely very long time, you simply may keep in mind years in the past after I tried to bake Artisan Bread and it flopped fairly royally. However I made a decision sufficient time had handed and I used to be courageous sufficient to strive once more.
Properly, let’s be trustworthy, it additionally helped that my buddy Kate posted a step-by-step video tutorial on Instagram.
Now, I must warn you: the recipe can really feel intimidating and prefer it’s WAY extra difficult than the promised 5-Minute recipe it’s touted as.

Right here’s my first loaf. I took it out of the oven somewhat sooner than I ought to have, however it was nonetheless scrumptious. The subsequent loaf (that I didn’t get a photograph of), I baked longer and it was crustier. All in all, I’d suggest this recipe. As soon as I acquired the hold of it, it was very easy to do and it solely takes a couple of elements!
