I. Love. Bread.
Love the stuff!!
It’s simple, yet amazing.
Why do you think it’s mentioned so many times in the bible?!?!
I love all bread. I don’t discriminate.
But, I absolutely love artisan bread.
The kinds of bread you find in a bakery.
What I don’t love is the cost.
It’s not that I don’t think it’s worth it. I absolutely do.
But, I currently cannot afford that kind of amazing creation.
I mean, seriously, consider the cost of ingredients to the cost once it’s been baked for you.
So, because of the cost-my budget issue … And because I like to try to make everything that I feed to my family myself … And because the aroma of baking bread wafting from my oven is something for the angels to sing about … And because eating fresh-baked, still warm, bread is in.cre.di.ble … I keep trying to perfect my bread baking abilities.
I’m not too bad. … I’m not amazing.
In 2007, I saw a guy on TV (some news show, I believe) discussing his new cookbook and method for baking bread.
A few months ago I fiiiinally gave it a try.
I had Baby Girl get it from her library because our library didn’t have it. I bought the items I needed. And I gave it a try.
I made all our own bread for a while using those three recipes. Once I had saved enough money making our own bread I found the books online and on sale and bought them.
If you can make cake from a mix, you can do this.
If you can make mac n cheese from the box – you can do this.
If you’ve ever made mud pies… in the mud – you can do this.
It’s insanely easy and incredibly fantastic!
I am so excited to be sharing this with you!!
I finally got around to taking pics today. (It’s hard to get pics of bread when it’s being gobbled up so quickly.) I made the cinnamon raisin bread today – one of my favorites.
I injured my arm last week somehow, so typing has been very difficult.
The baby has been sick and sleeping has been almost nonexistent, so thinking has been very difficult. 😉
But, I’ll share the cookbooks and items used in my next post.
