Since I wanted to start things slow with Darth, I opted to start with a super-easy bread recipe. Unfortunately, it's so good that I don't have any incentive to try anything more challenging. It makes two loaves and I froze one. We finished the other one off in a few days. Mr. Barefoot wants to try making it in the crockpot during the day so we come home to fresh baked bread. Any tips? Anyone know where I can get a rack for my crockpot?
I did also use Darth to mix up some of my famous foccacia bread - I've been making this recipe for years and it's a real crowd pleaser. It's so nice to not have to knead the bread myself - it means that I can make bread on a whim without getting all flour-y.
When I made the foccacia bread, instead of using the Italian seasonings, I used Old Bay, garlic powder, and minced onion (I need to get powdered, but I don't have it yet). I topped it with cheddar cheese. Next time, more Old Bay, but otherwise it was pretty good.
