I wrote before about my incompetence with yeast… and the fact that my only successes had been in a bread machine. Then I sort of broke the cycle with some Italian bread. I followed the Joy of Cooking’s instructions step by step, and yielded something yummy. It felt GREAT to make real bread, but sort of like... I couldn't really do it myself because I was clutching that book the whole time.

Well, guess what I did today… I flew… all on my own. I made honey wheat bread from scratch WITHOUT using a bread machine. And it’s beautiful.


My hubs and I ate some tonight for dessert, with honey butter on top. SO good.

More pictures and recipe are in my blog.

Bread machines are GREAT but I like that this made a normal-shaped loaf… I was able to get a lot more slices out of it than usual (which also means smaller sandwiches so I might be able to actually eat a whole one… I’ve taken to just eating turkey lunchmeat plain because I never feel hungry enough for a sandwich as huge as our bread usually is. ha!) .
