For the four of you that don't read Lifehacker
or Mark Bittman's
pieces in the New York Times, but who love baking bread.
Bittman's updated version of Jim Lahey’s recipe does not require remembering to start mixing ingredients last night if you want bread for dinner today. Bittman also includes a whole-grain recipe as well.
It's been posted earlier, I believe, but I'll remind anyone who missed it that Cook's Illustrated worked on the Leahy recipe to improve its flavor. They also came up with a neat technique of using a parchment paper sling to handle the loaf. I would have thought their recipe was behind their subscription firewall, but it looks like they made it openly available.
