Crusty Artisan Bread

I got this recipe last week from the lovely, talented and very culinary Lorraine Wentz and tried it out!

Lorraine has now made it a couple of times – the second time she baked it with rosemary and oregano olive oil, and Gruyere and cheddar cheese on top and said it was amazing! 358 more words

My memories foggy with time.
