simple and yummy!!!

one of my life credos is "simplicity is beautiful" and here are 2 REALLY simple and REALLY yummy recipes:

no-knead bread  -   link
- whenever we're expecting company and i don't feel like/don't have time to make a time-consuming lunch/dinner this bread is great! along with the fresh bread i serve garlic-herb butter, and/or a cheese spread, sun-dried tomatoes, pesto, etc.- whatever you like! it goes with just about anything! and a plate of assorted hams and cheeses, a plate of veggies and other additional appetizers like olives in VOI with garlic and herbs, etc. it tastes like ciabatta, only better having it fresh from the oven! the bread is really simple, the only "but" is you have to prepare the dough ahead of time. i've tried using plain white flour but it tastes even better with a white flour specially made for bread baking - for czech readers it's "PENAM pšeničná chlebová mouka."

lemon ice cream - link
- i've never had a liking for lemon ice cream, but this is soooo delicious! it's also very simple but you also have to prepare it ahead of time. i actually like it best when it's not totally frozen and still a little soft. you can have it plain, or add some berries (i love it with raspberries) or with a homemade family recipe chocolate icing(i'll give the recipe for the chocolate next time since St is waking up already - it's the best chocolate icing i've ever had!!!) 
p.s. don't forget to use organic(bio) lemons since we add some lemon peel.
