"YUMMY!!!! This was AMAZING (even though I messed up so much ...). Firstly, I do not have a food scale, so I had to google all the equivalents and do my best to keep it accurate. I also do not have a stand mixer, I kneaded the dough by hand (I also added too much flour because it was not sticky at ALL and it was very hard. I couldn't get it to the point where it would stretch out for light to come through, so I made it into a ball and left it to rise. It took 2 1/2 hours to rise the first time. I took it out and 'knuckled' it and rolled it into a pathetic ball...after letting it rise and doing the box cuts, I put it in the oven on an inverted cookie sheet (no terra cotta...) and cooked it for around 30 minutes (no thermometer). I took it out and did not wait a second to dig in!! 30 minutes? REALLY? I had it fresh from the oven ... it was PERFECT and I ate about half the loaf right there!!!! I strongly suggest this recipe - it is very hard to go wrong!!!"
