No-Knead Crusty White Bread

Making bread from scratch is not at all difficult if you’ve tried it.  A few years ago it was a cinch as my bread machine did the majority of the work, the results weren’t too bad, but I don’t have that bread machine anymore.  Over the years, I’ve enjoyed trying out fairly simple recipes to conquer that yeast fear.  I used to feel pretty intimidated with the seemingly complex and work intensive process of baking fresh bread.   Homemade bread is substantially tastier than store-bought bread, it isn’t laden with preservatives, nor is it expensive to make, and doesn’t take all that much time, either.  Those were reasons enough to motivate me.  I’ve since enjoyed trying and testing various recipes, including tips and tricks from different sources.  King Arthur Flour’s website comes up quite frequently on my Facebook page, I’d like to give them credit for this recipe.  It is so basic, but by reading their step-by-step instructions here, you’ll be able to master some of the do’s and dont’s almost right away.  I’ve also found that by watching videos online, it gives me that added confidence to try out anything.  I learned how to roll my own sushi with this method.  Will save that post for a later date :)
