No-Knead Bread

School was cancelled today because of the weather which means that I got to watch Mom create her newest culinary surprise: No-Knead Bread.

This bread has only four ingredients (flour, salt, yeast and water) and requires virtually no human attention. The New York Times featured Jim Lahey's recipe and there is a blog now devoted to variations on this bread. This bread is amazing in taste - perfectly chewy on the inside and crusty on the outside. It has no fat in it, and no sugar either. Pretty swell!
