Thanks to the encouragement of my baking friends I finally tried this technique. Looks alone have made it so rewarding!
Here's my recipe :
2 C whole wheat flour
1 C white flour
1/2 t salt
2 C water
It is so easy! Just make sure you have a big bowl and mix these ingredients. Then cover it with plastic wrap for a day (I think mine ended up being around 20 hours ). Plop the blob out on some flour. Let it rise while you prepare the pan.
Then preheat a lidded Dutch oven in a 450 degree oven. Pull it out, open the lid, and throw the blob into the pan. Put the lid on and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Reach in and take off the lid and then bake 15 more minutes.
It popped right out of the Dutch oven after baking and I'm cooling it here on this rack. I still can't believe it worked so well with so little handling.

In today's update: I am drinking green smoothies again. Trying to work it back into a habit. A few things I have changed is using plain greek yogurt (about 1/3 C) instead of little containers of sweetened. Other than that it's my tried and true recipe and still tastes great. And its still funny how my youngest loves them. You wouldn't think a drink like that would be a kid favorite but I drank them regularly while pregnant (especially at the end) so I blame that :).

|Downstairs 1/2 Bath|
Next up, I'll be featuring some views of the entry and stairways. Doesn't sound like much, but given the previous owner's penchant for loud wallpaper they are pretty big changes.
