TWD/BWJ: Rustic Potato Loaves

An easy yeast bread that didn't take 2 days! Yay! That alone puts it near the top of my favorites list. Following the advice of other bakers, I left the peels on the potatoes and liked the character they added. At first the dough seemed waaaaay too dry, but then something magical happened and it turned into a lovely soft mixture. I love it when the impossible happens.

smells good, Mom!

Things are looking up in our world. It's finally beginning to get warm, we had a wonderful doctor's appointment (he used the word "awesome"!), and we're on our way to paradise. More about that next time...

On the way home from the doctor's office yesterday, I saw this shoe. Felt like a chartreuse celebration!


  1. Glad to hear you had some positive news on the home front. Chartreuse worthy, indeed!

    I loved this bread too - it seemed almost too easy after those croissants

  2. This was a wonderful bread - I too liked the flecks of peel in the finished product. I'm happy for you that things are looking up. Have a wonderful time in paradise!

  3. Wonderful bread and a clean bill of health! Sounds like a good day.

  4. Beautiful bread. Love them when easy, quick and delicious.
