I used to love the PBS show, Breaking Bread with Father Dominic. I wonder if anyone else remembers that one. It’s not on around here anymore. I sure miss that show.
There really is something special and alluring about home-baked bread. I used to make home-baked pizza dough all the time and my family beg for it constantly. They love mom’s pizza. : )
Here lately, we’ve taken up the bread baking again. Abs and I spent a day last week baking a couple of loaves and they turned out pretty yummy.
We used the beginner’s bread recipe from Hillbilly Housewife. Abs used sugar in her recipe and I used honey.
We let it rise too long, I think, for the first rise. Grocery shopping calls – what can you do?
And here’s our bread.
Okay Abs’s loaf is pretty and mine’s pretty ugly. lol That’s okay. I’m still learning. : )
Here are some other bread recipes I can’t wait to try:
- American Sandwich bread – this is what I want for our lunches
- Zuchinni Bread – cause we have a ton of this right now
- Same Bread Every Week – just cause she seems to know what she’s talking about
- Home Baked Bread also has many other wonderful-looking recipes and some good information on baking bread. Go take a peek.
