I love homemade bread, but have personally found it somewhat difficult to make a good loaf. I even purchased a bread machine many years back, but the loaves were very dense, and the square shape aesthetically unappealing. I recently stumbled upon a recipe in Mother Earth News for artisan bread cooked in a Dutch oven. I have two Dutch ovens that I love and use frequently so I was excited to try this out. I haven’t tasted it yet but I must say it looks pretty good. Following is a link I found on line for the recipe as well as pictures of my own loaf.
