a little craft...

sister and i had a little craft night a while ago. this is what we came up with...

perfect for my newly painted white kitchen! (no more nasty brown! YAY!)

here's a closer look...

oh here is my bread recipe... so easy. enjoy!

this makes two loaves.
2 pkg. yeast
1/2 C. warm water
1 T. salt
3 T. sugar
2 C. warm water
6 C. flour (white or whole wheat)
1 egg white mixed with 1 T. water

disolve yeast in 1/2 C. warm water. add sugar, salt, 2 cups water and 2 cups flour, beat well and let rest for 15 min. add remaining flour and knead until smooth and shiny. let rise until doubled (about and hour and 1/2) in a buttered bowl lightly covered. divide in two and then let rest for 10 min. roll each section into a 12"x15" rectangle and then roll them into long rolls. cut top 1/4" deep every 2 inches, and place on sheet sprinkled with the cornmeal, let rise until doubled again. brush with egg mixture and bake at 375 for about 35 min. or until golden brown.

Thank you for posting the recipe! We have put our toes in the water recently, where bread making is concerned (pizza dough and artisan white bread). I love the simplicity of this recipe! I am ready to break out the wheat grinder! Thanks again!!!

First thing we do when we land in the Chesapeake Bay is make that yummy bread. Thank you kindly for that recipe - yum!
