After watching, oh, I don't know... 10 or so episodes... I decided to attempt a couple of the recipes: Hungarian Beef Stew and Almost No-Knead Bread. John and I were both pleasantly surprised by the results, especially with the bread. It was the first time I have tried to make bread, and I'm ready to go back for round two. The process may require quite a bit of time, but most of it is hands off, easy, delicious, healthier than store bought, cheaper than store bought, and good results are surprisingly satisfying.
