Artisan Bread

In the search for Amish Friendship Bread I came across 5 min Artisan Bread, sent to me from the same friend. I was very excited about this recipe being that I was almost in the process of purchasing a bread machine, imagine that cost, lol. Therefor I jumped on the BYOB band wagon.

At first I wasn't so sure about my ending product being that I was under the assumption that I would no longer have to buy bread again. The only bread I buy, besides Pillsbury, is loaf bread therefor this recipe was not saving me millions at the grocery store through out the year, but it is a very inexpensive way to portray being in the kitchen all day for those nights of entertainment or family get togethers, especially during the holiday seasons.

I was disappointed that the title carried "in 5 min" being that I have yet to see where it only takes me 5 min, yet none the less I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe and find it worth sharing. All it takes is a few hours but the hours are not filled with on going actions, basically you just mix the ingredients;
1 1/2 tablespoon of dry yeast
1 1/2 tablespoon of kosher salt
3 cups of lukewarm water
6 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
in a 40 cup plastic container with a lid let it set and rise for about 2-5 hours and that is it. NO KNEADING!

After that you can break of a grapefruit size chunk and bake it sending the rest to the refrigerator with the lid set on lightly. The dough will last 2 weeks tops allowing you to bake of that loaf of dough for 2 weeks, all it takes is a grapefruit size ball of dough;
use flour to prevent sticking
Mold into shape
slash cuts on top side of mold, preventing breakage
bake in the oven at 450 for 30 min
pour a small amount of water in a shallow pan on the lower rack creating steam then close then oven door.

The book suggest you use a Pizza Peel and dusting a little corn meal on top of it but I have yet to purchase one and am still satisfied. For answers to your questions read the comments listed here and for a directional video go here.

The book also contains many more recipes in which I can not wait to share my results on.

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church


No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
