No-Knead Bread Baking Dish Cheat

I was house sitting for a friend last month and I didn't have my Dutch Oven available for Bread Baking.

I was able to use a couple of their Pyrex Baking Dishes instead of a Pizza Stone.

Just preheated the dishes in the oven like you would a pizza stone.
preheat a broiler pan with them to add a cup of water for when the dough goes in.

It turned out about the same as the Pizza Stone Method.
all in all the Dutch Oven Method works best but these tweaks work well in a pinch.

Next Avalanche Tech

Seems I'm not the only one who equates the arrival of the MakerBot as being similar to the arrival of the Apple Computer. See Thingiverse Blog article Are 3D Printers the Next Avalanche Tech? for their take on it.

btw, I finally got my order in for a Cupcake CNC on August 31st. Should be getting a Batch 7 machine sometime after the October 5th ship date.
