Easy Crusty French BreadBy Rita's KitchenThis bread is wonderful and the picky husband swears by it. Great as a side, as an appetizer with olive oil, or just warm from the oven with fresh butter. Original Recipe from Life as a Strawberry.


If you like, you can use a piece of parchment paper to make it easier to lift the loaf in and out of the Dutch oven. You can use almost any size of Dutch oven (or French oven, as Le Creuset calls them) for this bread – anything in the neighborhood of a 5- or 6-quart size will work. You may not need all of the flour for this recipe (or you may need a little more!) The consistency of your dough depends on the temperature and humidity of the room, the weight of ingredients, etc. So if your dough looks like it needs a little more flour maybe doesn’t need the full 2.5 cups, go with your instincts! If your kitchen is chilly, you may need to let the bread rise longer than suggested.
Sweet Potato Fries (4-6 servings)By Rita's KitchenThese addictive seasoned "fries" from Mark Bittman are actually baked, but we promise you won't miss the grease. The spice mix – garlic powder, paprika, salt and black pepper – can be used on regular potatoes as well (you'll just need to increase the baking time a bit).
