Want to be admired?





Instant Hero status with this amazing "no knead bread"




It was a success the very first time I tried it




I've been baking it ever since, only 4 ingredients required: flour, yeast, salt and water.




How do you feel about  blog posts  accompanied by music.  Do you find it distracting or do you welcome it?  I would like to know.

  1. Hi, Gina - Recipes that are so easy that 4-year-olds enjoy making them certainly catch my attention! And the result looks very tasty indeed.

    I'm glad you asked about blog musical accompaniments. When they happen automatically, I find it irritating, and usually leave the site immediately. I will click on YouTube and musical links, but I would prefer that they be my choice. I think that part of that has to do with blog-reading being a very focused activity, and almost any soundtrack then becoming a distraction.

  2. I agree completely with Mark. I either leave or, if I find the subject particularly interesting, I mute it. Not only is it distracting but often of such poor quality. I prefer your method of presenting a choice, and I appreciate the quality of your selection.

  4. Hi Prcilla, Thank you for commenting. I have wondered how other Bloggers feel about background music.

  5. Hello Gina, usually, i turn it down as i rather concentrate on the blog itself, and in this case on this gorgeous bread ! :-)

  6. Dear Lala, My sentiments exactly. I hope that you try this very easy and so delicious bread. I just pulled a loaf out of the oven minutes ago. Hot bread and fresh butter...a glass of wine would have been nice but I need to paint.

  7. I usually have the volume off, so I never notice any music or beeping sounds!

  8. I have wanted to try Mark Bittman's no knead bread ever since I first read his recipe in the New York Times. You make it look even more desirable!

    Regarding music, I prefer the way you offer it.
    On the other hand, I know of one blog where I always look forward to hear French chansons. So there, it depends, I guess. Anyway, Nabucco's Prisoner Chorus is indeed beautiful.

  9. Dear Francesca, That's the best way.

  10. Dear Merisi, I use an eight grain mixture inside the towel...less messy than flour when you toss the dough into the covered pot.
    I first heard Nabucco while watching the movie Tango. The melody has never left me.
