I made bread! And it was a success! And it was easy! I was intimidated - but I should have done this long ago. I just needed the book Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François to ease me in to bread-making. It doesn't actually take 5 minutes, but it's no-knead, which is good because I have barely any counter space in my kitchen and it's so much less messy to just stir everything in a bowl. You should check out this book from your local library, or just google around for no-knead bread recipes, if you're interested.
