Houston, we have BREAD!!!

I did it! I made ciabatta bread! It was fabulous. The whole crazy process was worth it, if for nothing else but to give me a little faith and fuel the fire that is burning with yeast and flour.

I must confess however, that my focaccia rolls ended up in the trash due to failure to rise. I realized later, after a call to my sister's yeast hotline, that I didn't add enough of the little magic granules. But I did get the correct measurement and I shall try, try again...

And now I am just days away from pulling my weird little jar of sourdough starter out of the fridge and see what happens.

Here's to the bread frenzy ensuing in my kitchen!
