A New Bread:: Potato Rye

I pre-ordered Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a day and it arrived last week. It is the follow up to Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. It is much more informational than their last book and contains a wealth of knowledge about gluten-free breads, for those of you who are looking for a non-gummy recipe for gluten-free bread. When the Amazon box arrived, I knew that it was going to be a late, cuddled up with a cup of tea and my new book.
I don't have the gluten on hand that is required to help all the whole grain flours rise to amazing heights, so I satisfied my need to try a new bread with a recipe for a European Potato Rye from the old book. It called for one cup of mashed potatoes, which is exactly what I had in the fridge from making baked potatoes last week for dinner. Goodbye leftovers, hello delicious bread.

This looks delicious! Your photos are terrific. I have the original book but haven't tried this recipe yet. Maybe something that I will have to try on my next bread baking day. I'd love to hear what you think about the new book... it's on my wish list!

My friend Sarah over at Minnesota Madre says that Krista is your sister... I taught with her at Valley View. What a small world! Tell her I said hello!

What a darling blog! I stumbled across it looking for other bloggers that are cooking from the Healthy Bread in Five. Your bread is beautiful- but your kids are too! Love your entire "community" feel and local lifestyle.
