I Made Bread

I told y’all I wanted to create a more frugal home. And I’m starting with the basics. 
I googled “easy homemade bread” with emphasis on the word easy.
I found a great recipe.
I think it would have been perfect if I’d followed the recipe exactly. 
But I forgot to add salt. Turns out that is a very important ingredient. Who knew?
The loaf was also very hard (like a brick, according to my son) from over kneading, I learned.

We dipped the loaf in salted olive oil with cracked pepper. We ate every bite (even though it tasted like Communion). We’re not picky.
My hubby likes to tackle challenges. He found this recipe for a no-knead crusty bread. It is very easy, but requires some advanced planning because it involves 12-18 hours of rising.
But it is delicious:

We made a rye and a beer bread version. 

We have become bread making machines.
Our latest attempt?
My hubby wanted to perfect the shape and so he used a large saucepan for baking.
This is what he got:

Oh, and this:
P.S. My hubby burned his hand last weekend. I waited to post this to make sure his burns healed. Oh, and his ego.
Disclaimer: Someone was harmed in the making of this post. But did you really expect less?
I don’t think so.

Are you a bread-maker too? Tell me how you make it!

    This has encouraged the manufacturers to find a reliable solution to help consumers make the
    best possible use of the product they acquire.
    However, mold spores, which are benign by themselves and
    found virtually everywhere, can propogate wildly active colonies when exposed to an amply wet environment.
    Leaks in your roof or around windows, plumbing
    problems and even cracks and crevices in the walls allow moisture to seep into your home’s structure.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
