I love homemade bread but have often found it somewhat difficult to make a good loaf myself. I even purchased a bread machine many years back but often found the loaves really dense and the square shape 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.
