Easy Home Made (No Knead - 4 Ingredient) BREAD!


Truly, this is so easy. I don't really know my way around bread, so I was uncertain during each step. Nonetheless, it turned out great! My friend, Gail, was right!


Here's the recipe:

But the thing that I love the most about making this bread - is that I was undeterred by my inexperience. I'm that way with most cooking. If I can read the recipe, I'm willing to try it - and generally it's edible, even if it's not exactly like the picture!


I just think that's a great way to go about life - having confidence about endeavors that you take on. I'm pretty sure I got that from my parents who believed that I could do anything. And because they believed I could do anything - I believed it too.


This confidence was part of me even in the most difficult adolescent years. Take, for example, my stint on the 8th grade "C" Volleyball team in grammar school. (The "C" Team being the least skilled of all the volleyball teams.) I didn't care that I was on the "C" team - I played my heart out - as if I really was a crack volleyball athlete, and I had a great time. I have no bad memories of those days on the court. And, I wasn't deluded about the level of skill that I had, or why I was on the "C" team. I knew that I wasn't ever going to be on the "A" team. I just had confidence that I could be a good "C" team player. I believed that when I was on the court, I could do the job that was required of me, and I had fun doing it.


I guess I feel the same way about cooking. I might not ever be "The Pioneer Woman" but that doesn't stop me from trying new things, even fancy things! I'm the best "C" team chef you'll ever encounter! I have confidence in that!
