A near-perfect loaf.

Always more uniformly colored in the home oven, but just as delicious done outside and with charcoal.

Nice Thread, thank you.

My wife and I also use alternative medicine in addition to MDs. In December I herniated two discs and broke my back, fractured actually as they call it. Medical teams said operate but our long time Chiro said no, give it six months and take these, Dr. Maroons Fish Oils, pure fish oils. It's now April and I have full mobility, still painful but along with Chiro use Acupuncture which also helps. Five years ago I would have been the last person one would expect to seek alternative to the knife and pills.

Waiting for things to improve is never a good option, your approach is what makes the awful and unacceptable bearable and doable. Congratulations on moving on without forgetting.

Our Best

Bud

I have had several requests for the pdf document, which I am happy to share with anyone who requests it.

After discovering this wonderful, no-knead, one-artisan-loaf-at-a-time, recipe in late fall 2013, I baked numerous loaves in my home oven before Doug & I headed out on our winter trip in early 2014......where we worked up a methd of duplicating this delicious loaf in an outdoor DO, with charcoal.....in all kinds of weather.

All were edible, tho it took some work to figure it all out, and to get the good results outdoors.

Artisan bread is $4-$5 a loaf in the grocery stores these days, and you can make your own for probably less then $1, tho I truly haven't tried to calculate.

If you can manage an RV, you can bake good bread. It is just a different learning curve.

This last trip, I refrigerated my dough, once risen 6-8 hours, and baked stovetop a single serving at a time in my small panini pan.

It was delicious, and I could have a bit of fresh bread every day.....without having to do an entire loaf or haul out into winter weather the DO and charcoal. I was very happy.

If you are interested in doing pan bread of any size, rather than reposting that here please see the Cast Iron & Fire Cooking thread in the Stella's Kitchen sub-forum. Pictures and instructions.

I did a loaf of DO bread two nights at Alumalina, also one additional batch one night in a large skillet on my stove. Every crumb was eaten.

Healthy, delicious, homemade bread is one of life's little pleasures.

Go forth, and bake your own bread!

Thank you, Bud.

I feel I have incorporated absent-Doug into my present life. I talk to him every day, and when I see something/someone that reminds me of him, I smile and say hello.

Still, life goes on and so must I. It is also what he would want, I feel certain,

It is serious work, transitioning from loving in presence, but I believe it is critical to do the work as it eventually makes all the difference in the quality of your life.

Candles from Edisto shells.

Soy wax, wicks = candles from anything.

I love re-using glass for candles....now shells from a beloved place.

Like, like, like!

Your candles are lovely, Maggie. Sourcing them from a beloved place makes them ever so special. I must learn to craft some candles in a similar manner. Thank you for being an inspiration to me.

Secondly, I actually thought of you as I walked past Dutch Ovens at Cabela's today. A year ago or more, I believe you mentioned the Mother Earth artisan DO bread recipe which I faithfully bookmarked. I imagine it remains your flagship recipe. It's not like me to purchase a DO without researching at length (errr, ad nauseam), but I'm likely to immerse myself in the coming months. We take delivery of our 27'FB Twin International Signature in a few weeks with our first road trip already planned.

Most important, I'm so pleased you have chosen to open another chapter in this forum! You apply a tender touch. Your writing has served to make me mindful of the present, past and future and that life is a delicate balance.

I'd like to imagine we might cross paths on the road someday, but until then, I will be reading your posts with interest.

Allyson

Glad you made it home & I like your new thread. Next time you are at Edisto pick up some sand dollars for the grand kids to dye. I dyed these with for my friends kids & they are a beautiful faded color. The kids dyed some & decorated some with glitter pens. They are too "old" (14) now to dye sand dollars anymore but they still have them which makes me smile.��

Thank you, Allyson.

When I first discovered that bread recipe, it was late fall of 2013.

Who knew that delicious, homemade bread could be made without the toil and mess of kneading, kneading, kneading.

I have to credit someone else, whose idea I came upon, with the candles made from seashells. Not an original idea.

I placed several dozen shells....not made into candles nor saved in glass jars....in my rock bed by my front porch. The rock bed we made from the flower bed the first spring after we retired.....because I was not going to be home to faithfully water the pink impatiens I always placed there.

It now has numerous deposits of Edisto shells, plus shells from other places, rocks picked up here and there, and lots of Lake Superior rocks....which are very smooth and distinct.

And a few large, purchased and inscribed rocks, with Est. 1985, the names of Doug & I, and my two children.....the only people to have ever lived in this little house. I bought them when I had been here 25 years. Raised my children here, added Doug along the way.

Every time I go in or out of the house, I see life memories in my rock bed.


I have just watched a very good, but rather depressing, movie....The Other Woman, starring the very excellent Natalie Portman.

Good idea, skitique!

I found two sand dollars there on St. Patrick's Day....side by side.

The Lily, of Lily&Me, taken by MsMoto as she served me cappucino at Alumalina.

Lily is not too sure what to do with this new puppy.

I really like not being the one to host holiday meals any more. Took homemade biscuits and jam, and cookies. My son made me tea, they did the cooking and clean-up.

I was the guest, and I liked it.
