2 #recipes for No Knead Bread - my @AlbertaatNoon column for May

No Knead Bread is not new. It became famous when Mark Bittman wrote a New York Times article about it a decade ago in 2006. I’m going to talk about the recent comeback of bread’s popularity and the rise of sourdough breads in this post “wheat belly” era for my CBC Alberta at Noon column tomorrow. 869 more words

Dinner last night was polenta (adapted from Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything Vegetarian) and homemade Fast Tomato Sauce from the same cookbook, the variation with dry white wine. 81 more words
