Good Enough to Eat

I've been playing around with the idea of baking our bread at home. I mean, honestly. I used to work as a baker. Not to mention all of the culinary experience I have. What is the deal? :) I guess I just think it takes time. But does it? Really?

Well, I finally took the plunge on Thursday and baked a loaf. Again. I realized. I missed it. And like so many things that we sometimes leave behind, it's not as hard or time consuming as we might think. And to be completely honest - I even made my own recipe. Yes, I still remembered how to do it! And by unanimous vote of the family, it turned out delicious.

And it's so much better for you. They put waaaay too much stuff in the average loaf of bread that you buy off of the shelf, and the brands that were ok, had nut allergy warnings on them. Booo. Not cool.

So, baking the bread it is! I'll share the recipe some time soon! After I make it a few times and get the quantities totally nailed down for your baking and eating pleasure!

Well, cool!! Did you do it in a bread machine or just in a pan? My boys actually prefer my homemade whole wheat bread over the store bought whole wheat. I make it in the bread machine, so it is super easy. I can't wait to try yours!

Can't wait for your recipe, I was so bugged when I read the bread ingredient lists and every single one, even the whole wheat healthy ones, had high fructose corn syrup, as the second or third ingredient!
