while searching for valentine's ideas, i found this great gift idea for a friend who's interested in making bread. my sister planted the idea of adding a well-loved bread machine to my list of things to get from the thrift store, but until then, i'm tempted to give no-knead bread another try. my last batch was a little tough since i didn't use bread flour. any other good tips from you bread bakers out there? i recently read this blog post which gave me hope and has my mouth watering.
