Fresh baked bread is a magical thing. But baking it at home without a bread machine can be a long process that is rarely compatible with a full-time job. I’ve adapted Michael Smith’s Country Bread recipe to keep my family of four in bread all week. I increased amounts to produce two loaves, eliminated the kneading, and minimized the number of tools so there is less washing up. If you can spare 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening this one might turn you into a bread maker, too.

We whipped up this handy little building table when our son was a busy little building boy. It was simple to make, and he has spent hours building a variety of things on this table; some taller than he was at the time!
