Homemade bread bakery style from a red Dutch Oven

Highlight of the week! First time making homemade bread bakery style from a red Dutch Oven.

Flour, yeast, salt, water… and a Dutch Oven.  That’s it.  And the taste?  Incredible!  Take The Keg’s original bread (before they dumbed it down) and amp it by 4x, its that good.  Tracy ordered a red Dutch Oven on-line and this week made her first bakery style bread at home, and it was the highlight of the week for the family.  It’s obvious many of us are baking more because it sure is hard to find flour.  Took three tries until we found what was needed at The Monastery.  Comfort food for our new life!

Willemstad, Capital Of Curacao, a Dutch Caribbean Island

What’s there not to like about colorful buildings lined up at attention? Arguably the photo is a little cliche in that you will find multiple similar images if you google Willemstad Curacao. The buildings in traditional Dutch style line what I will call the touristy area with all the stuff to buy from major brands that you could actually get back at home. Now please walk beyond that and look for the places to dine for they are all local, unique, and delightful. The food is simply delicious! Favorite on the island was Shelterrock (tried Lionfish for first time), plus a direct from the ocean to your plate fish lunch at Purunchi Koredor (look it up on Tripadvisor… this place has soul!).
