Bread and inspiration

Delicious! At least it looks good! I got inspired my my Italian bread moment and decided to surprise J with homemade fettuccini alfredo. Should be good!

Bread recipe:

2 3/4 c. organic flour
1 c. water (100-110 degrees F)
2 1/4 tsp. yeast
1/2 tsp garlic powder (or to taste)
1 Tbsp organic italian seasoning (or to taste)
1/4 c. organic Parmesan cheese

Dissolve yeast in water, add a pinch of sugar to make sure they're working!
Add yeast mixture to flour, garlic powder, italian seasoning, and cheese
Mix together, knead for about 5 minutes
Let rise 45 minutes or until doubled
Knead again for about 3-4 minutes
Let rise another 45 mintues or until doubled
Preheat oven to 450
Bake at 450 for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and sounds hollow when knocked on

Hopefully it's good. I'll let you know if it needs to be tweaked!
