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.

Farm girl wannabe, enjoying life on the Big Island. We have a small five acre farm along the Hamakua coast. While we have a few crops we grow to sell, we are trying to create a self sustaining lifestyle on our little piece of paradise. I set up this blog initially to help me keep track of different things we grow and how well they’re doing, but recently decided to go public with it. I enjoy reading other hobby farm sites, and thought sharing our story a little might inspire others as they have inspired me.
