My latest experiment. I'm doing this before asking about it. That's why it's an experiment. Probably has more to do with I'm a guy. And as I man I typically don't follow directions well. :) Been watching vids on youtube about no knead bread. They all seem to have two things in common. They are all made with few ingredients. They are all very wet doughs for bread. So I did it differently. I made a batch of the bread I've been eating for a few weeks now. I had to incorporate the shortening by melting it. And I added 1/4 cup more water to make a sticky dough. This sticky dough sat overnight. This morning I preheated my oven to 400. That's 50 higher than what the original recipe calls for. I placed my dutch oven in and let it heat up for 30 minutes. Turned my dough out onto a piece of parchment paper. Worked it a bit to re aerate.  Formed it all into one saggy ball and let it sit covered until the dutch oven (DO)was hot enough. With the DO ready I rubbled flour on the outside of the now risen glob of dough. Scored the top to allow steam to escape. Placed it in the oven and then turned the temp back down to 350. The bread is now doing it's thing. The only thing I have left to do is uncover it for the last 15 minutes of baking. This will allow the top of the bread to brown up as well. Let you know how it does!turns out.

Here is one of the many vids on youtube about this technique.

Some things.
The oven is a great place to let dough proof. If you have an oven with a incandescent light that bulb will work as a heat source. A 60 watt bulb is the most inefficient light bulb we have. This bulb creates a lot of heat. So it will keep your oven at a good 80+ when lit.

The bread recipe i used called for milk. So I put milk into my dough. This milk has been sitting in dough for 8 hours. Cheese? I'll find out soon.  :D

My tomcat must have been raised with dogs because he did not fear them. He liked everyone and could open doors with his fangs. Also responsive to commands and quite the mooch when takeout fish dinners were involved. He died in 1995.

We adopted a cat who had been raised with a dog. The cat was more like a dog in
how it acted. It wanted our praise unlike most cats who could care less. Goes
to show animals aren't that much different than humans when it comes to
emotional needs. Along with the way envioroment shapes their personality.

It's a shame dogs have such a short life. Seems about the time we get to
know them their life is about over. At least it seemed that way with the dogs
I have owned over the years. Sure they can be trained to do many things,
but it takes time to grow mentally.

My microwave oven, one month in use, quit in the middle of heating dinner. Had to finish cooking it in a convection oven.
