“It's fun to try different things in the kitchen for me. I love to experiment. This recipe is one of those kind-of recipes. This bread is mixed then placed in a coffee can where it rises and bakes. Pretty cool, if you ask me, and a great way to turn trash into something useful. And the bread ain't bad either!”
