Renee-Lucie BenoitEvery once in a while I get a hankering for something dough-y. A magazine seen on the display rack at Tractor Supply once inspired me to start making the easiest and tastiest homemade bread I’ve ever made so far. It was from a Grit publication called Grit Country Skills Series - Guide to Homemade Bread. It was the No-Knead Artisan Bread on page 17. I’ve now made it dozens of times and it’s never failed. So with that success under my belt I ventured into the uncharted territory of other easy bread stuffs. I’ve always loved English muffins but our grocery store is not close so it's not easy to pop down for a package whenever I feel like it. Fortunately we’re stocked up on supplies so I can usually concoct something with my trusty Joy of Cooking or a quick internet search.

Last November I put English muffin rings on my Christmas list and Santa was so kind to oblige. Inside the box of rings I found a recipe which turned out to be quite tasty. They don’t taste like store-bought but they taste very, very good. It's hard to imagine how anything warm from the oven can taste bad with butter slathered on? You can make them without the rings if you don’t mind that they look rather amoeba-like. Or maybe you are much handier at making things round than I. If you’re more like me, get some rings for the authentic look. They can be purchased on Amazon, for example, and aren’t very costly.
