    first time i tried to make bread it turned out like a brick and was terrible. that was like 8 years ago.

    this one worked out better.

    dry ingredients:
    3 cups bread flour
    1 1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp instant yeast

    add 12 oz water and mix until combined and dough is sticky...

    this thread will be boring because it's about bread and most of bread making appears to be waiting around.

    cover with plastic wrap and begin waiting...

    after around four hours...

    and more waiting...

    preheat oven to 450 after letting dough rest for 1 hour.

    [​IMG]

    put french oven into cold oven for 30 minutes as it pre-heats to also pre-heat the french oven...

    dump the dough into the hot french oven, add a small amount of water around the bread (like 2 tbsp), and put on lid. the dough flipped over so a bit of it looks like a dry vagina.
