See the title up there?
The key word is “quick”.
This bread is super quick, as in get everything ready and then, boom, before you know it it’s in the oven and driving you crazy with heavenly smells.
At least that is what happen when I decided to make it this past Friday.
Yep, you read it right, this past FRIDAY. As in, after a long day at work, I got to baking. Can you tell I had a hard week?
Because I totally did.
Very hard week, in total need of full therapeutic intervention.
So I got home and knew that if I did not turn on the oven and got busy, I was going to have a meltdown.
Baking, my anti-drug.
And this was the perfect prescription.
A couple of tips about the vegetables I been using on the last post…
Did you know that Leeks were prized for centuries for everything from strength-giving qualities to magical properties. They are related to both garlic and onion, with a flavor milder than either. In other words - yummylicious. The best way to choose when purchasing them is to make sure they have crisp, brightly colored leaves and unblemished white sections. Avoid any with withered or yellow-spotted leaves. The smaller the leek, the more tender it will be. They store well in a plastic bag in the refrigerator up to 5 days. Save the tough green leek ends you trim off, you can put them in a cheesecloth bag and use to flavor soups.
And since we talked about leeks.. let’s talk also about carrots.
