Cottage Onion Dilly Bread

Even though I love to eat fresh bread and love the intoxicating smell of it baking in the oven, I rarely make it. There really isn't anything hard about making bread, but it can be so time consuming.  You can't just mix it up and stick it in the oven.  The dough has to rise, and depending on what kind of bread you are making, that can take a lot of time.  I guess when I have made it in the past I sometimes felt like I was planning my whole day around a loaf of bread.  This recipe intrigued me because it is a no-knead recipe that doesn't have very long rise times because it uses quick rise yeast.  It makes two nice loaves and the onion-dill flavor is amazing.
