I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Slow Cooker (Practically) No Knead Bread

Two hours, no rising, no manual kneading... no way!!! Check it out.

2  1/4 tsps instant yeast
1 tbsp sugar
1  1/2 cups lukewarm water (105-110°F)
3  3/4 cups flour
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup basil pesto (optional)
1 tsp salt
Topping- dry parsley and bagel everything seasoning (optional)

Add sugar to lukewarm water in a large mixer bowl then sprinkle yeast on top and stir.

Add the flour, olive oil and salt (and pesto if using or just go for white bread). Using the dough hook attachment let the mixer knead for 5 minutes.
When the dough is smooth and elastic form into a ball. Place in a parchment lined 6-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with toppings, or salt or leave plain.

Put the cover on the crock making sure the parchment is tucked inside so the lid fully closes. 

Set on high for 2 hours, no peeking except through the glass lid.

After 2 hours it should be fully baked with an internal temperature of 200°F. 

Using the parchment, lift the bread out of the crock. It looks a bit anemic at this point.

But place it on the parchment under the broiler for 3-5 minutes and voilĂ ! A beautiful golden loaf of bread!

Just wait 20 minutes before slicing.
