    I cheat and use a Zojirushi bread machine; it produces a much better product than the cheap machine I used to have

    I've never used a bread making machine or a no-knead recipe. But for me the hand mixing and kneading is a hugely sensuous pleasure!

    I no longer eat bread, but, when I did, home made was best. Pizza dough too...

    Mt sister just sent me a bread recipe that requires only beer, flour and sugar.
    I may try that this afternoon.

    Ms. darkwaters, being of Irish heritage, makes a mean Irish Soda Bread. No yeast required. Not really appropriate for sandwiches, but great with my Irish Stew !

    Update: I told her I was making Baked Beans tomorrow (Yet another storm on the way so might as well. Ah, life on a rock in the North Atlantic. :rolleyes:) and she said she'll make Irish Soda Bread tonight to go with them. Woo hoo! :)

    Very limited bread here so I went to buy flour yesterday so we could bake bread. Hit all three grocery stores in town. Guess what, no flour.

    Crock pot BBQ style meat can be good. Those buns look tasty (that sounded wrong, depending on personal preferences).

    In the UK last time I was in the supermarket there was plenty of bread but no flour or yeast.

    Girlfriend has us covered. I picked up a 5 pound bag of all purpose flour, not her favorite brand but it gets it done. She made bagels and pierogis.

    She's been feeding a sourdough starter for years.

    I should have grabbed more yeast.


    Albany, NY specific:

    We've been stopping at Cardona's Market in what I guess could be described as Albany's Tiny Italy. Like Little Italy only smaller...

    :D :D :D

    We've been going to Cardona's since Fretta's went the way of the buffalo. Fretta's was the oldest family owned Italian sausage shop in the U.S..

    Pigs went in, sopresetta came out.

    :cool: :cool: :cool:

    Cardona's makes their own bread. Turns out there's a bakery across the street that supplies just about every restaurant in Albany, Troy, Schenectady etc. . Couple bucks a loaf fresh and hot.

    Our usual stop on the way down to Williams Grove was Fretta's for sausage and cheese and then another stop at the bakery down the street for rolls.

    i'm willing to believe that. I have a Zojirushi thermos I leave at work.

    On Monday, it is still full of the ice I put in it on Friday! It works almost too perfectly.

    Ha!! I was looking for a new recipe, and found Irish Soda bread the other day, and since we are just past St. Paddy's day I made some just an hour ago.
    Eating right now with my eggs and potatoes for lunch. Kind of like a big baking powder biscuit!!

    Very cool, thank you. But what do you mean by Baker's mass?

    Nice to see others with rituals like ours.

    I posted this in the meal thread the other day. It's the sourdough starter my wife always manages but with nuts and seeds.

    @getbent Our pulled pork or smoked meat stock will replenish with spring being here. We'll do it inside at times but like those extra carcinogens when it's a real fire doing it and the aroma moves around with the wind. We can't eat it out anymore because nothing compares to how we then cool it, pick out the fat and have the pure lean tasty stuff. Then we freeze it so you can have a fantastic fast meal by just warming it on skillet.

    For buns, that's why my wife always makes what some would consider too much mashed potatoes or having extra taters after a meal.

    Everyone should be good food rich if not Cayman Islands or Presidio Heights rich because it's so relatively easy to do. Do it with your kids too.

    I haven't made bread for years, but I remember that no knead recipes have the best results for me. I also had a bread making machine that made bread that treated like cardboard...

    We still have enough in the shops, and bread here is so good that I doubt I'll ever match that quality.
