Accepted and Done!
I was challenged by Lowe to cook something using only white ingredients. When I read it I thought it said bake... But Lowe said it still counts! Yay! So I made Honey-Oat Bread. The ingredients, for the most part are white. Yeast is kind of brownish... but could count as white??? Had a lot of fun with this.

It really is nice and simple, though there are a lot of steps. It is mostly the time it takes and the waiting that makes it difficult.

A lot of steps, I know.
