131  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / No Knead Bread on: November 11, 2007 11:13:09 AM
Here's a recipe for no knead bread I came across recently. Apparently, it tastes *wonderful* - artisan bread quality...and no kneading! Time does it all for you, so as long as you're patient... Wink

3 cups/375g bread flour
1 1/4 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp instant yeast
1 5/8 cups/13 oz water, warm but not hot

In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients to combine. Add the water and stir until its a blended and shaggy dough. It will be very wet.

Cover with plastic wrap and set aside to rise for 12 -18 hours.

Dump the risen but still-sticky dough onto a well-floured surface and turn it onto itself once or twice to deflate. Drape with plastic wrap and let rest for 15 minutes.

Heavily flour your hands and a cotton dishtowel or silicone sheet. Form the dough, as best you can, into a ball and place it, seam-side up on the towel. Cover with another floured towel and let rise about two hours, until doubled in size. [I lift the towel a bit after an hour to make sure its not sticking.]

Place a large covered pot in the oven and preheat to 450 degrees/ 230 C/ Gas Mark 8 for at least 20 minutes.

Dump the dough into the hot pot, seam-side down, and shake to distribute, if necessary. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Remove cover and bake another 15-30 minutes until bread is browned.

Cool on a rack.

Here's where I found the recipe: http://foodpluspolitics.com/2007/11/08/that-famous-no-knead-bread/

Ok. I've got a tough one.

Fiancee...he's 27.

He's not a macho guy (with tools and hardware and the like), nor is he an excessive geek (likes to live simple, selective about his nerdly indulgences). Not too much of a gadget fiend.

He's a programmer, loves to read. Doesn't wear t-shirts with logos. Doesn't wear jeans. He's a gamer but he's very picky about his games. He's buying me a nintendo Wii for christmas, and I would like to return the favor with something nice. I don't just want to buy him books. There are lots of things I could think of getting for *us*, because we're planning a home together.  We need all sorts of things... But thats not just for *him*, ya know? Smiley

He has a cat, loves his cat. Loves reading, as mentioned. Legos, a reason to put a computer together. hah Smiley Dunno. I'm blocked. Any ideas, guys?

I'm in!! Smiley ... and new to the forums. Smiley

I'm making:

Mom: Queen sized quilt
Sister (14): Jewelry box with etched initials in the mirror and velvet interior, earrings (she just got her ears pierced)
Grandmother: Painted bird house
Grandfather: Something edible..any ideas? he doesn't like chocolate.
Aunt: no clue...
Fiancee: no clue...He's getting me a Wii, so I'd better make it good Wink
Fiancee's parents: no clue...
Fiancee's sister and brother in law: Embroidery under glass coasters... idea from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=135194.0!
Lisa, friend #1: She's getting married so I'm making her a quilt for a christmas/wedding present. Won't be ready until after Christmas, though.
Sarah, friend #2: No clue yet...
Lindsay, friend #3: Dairy free chocolate truffles. She, like me, suffers greatly from diary products.

And thats what I have so far. Smiley Most of the gifts I want to make cost a decent amount of cash and time, so I want to keep my list small. Can't wait to see everyone else's creations! Cheesy
