Garlic and Herb Dutch Oven Bread

This is the perfect recipe for a cozy day at home. Especially if you are spending ALL DAY at home! This one takes time but the results are worth it! Not only will you get to enjoy a delicious loaf of home-made bread, your house will smell amazing in the process.





Of all the recipes I have tried, this one made me the most proud. I felt like the Pioneer Woman. I think I could have survived living in ancient times.. or the middle ages... or maybe the prairie... Ok, who am I kidding, I can't even camp.


But I can make bread! And now you can too. So grab some cozy socks, put on some background music, and enjoy the process.


Perfect for a cool Autumn day


You can also use this recipe with different herbs, or substitute for a jalapeno cheese bread. Next time I think I will experiment with using seeds.
