Bread, at its simplest, requires no other ingredients than flour and salt. And since most of us are lucky enough to have access to running water - and can probably afford a bag of two dollar flour - the dream of homemade bread needn't be a complicated one.
Coming home from my European adventure felt good and, all clichés aside, there really is nothing like lying down in your own bed after three months of sofa fold-outs and hostel bunks.
