What I would do: Add eyes, add bow to pink doll, remove "stand out" seems redundant

but if you kept the "stand out": write the .com a bit more squat, keep the different font style, make "stand out" bold

i love the stamping, and i CAN tell they are dolls

dont forget to post your results, id love to see the finished product

Thanks for responding.
Craftewoman, I hope you dont mind, but im copy pasting your advice for future reference in my "bread file" thanks so much. i used quick rise yeast (because thats what i had on hand) is that... not an especially good idea with bread machines? i did notice the bread was dense, but quite crummy when i sliced it.

thanks for the sunbeam website recommendation, bella_domanie. i see the recipes call for bread machine yeast? is there a difference between that and others?

ralts, i may just try the weighing idea if my loaves keep turning out so mediocre at best. i could probably use a scale anyways. for accuracy. afterall, alton brown weighs everything too. lol Smiley

Hello everyone!
so this was first attempt at making bread... with a bread machine... without a manual.
i just found a simple recipe and went with it. it didnt turn out too bad. and i certainly will be making my own bread more often from now on.

1 cup Warm Water
4 teaspoons oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon dry milk
3 cups Bread Flour
1 tablespoon active dry yeast

1. Add measured ingredients to pan, yeast last
2. Select size, crust color
3. Remove carefully, let cool.

So, since making this bread, Ive made an attempt at cinnamon raision bread, but that ended up tasting rather... airy? i cant quite describe it. perhaps almost rancid? i dont know what could have caused this. all of my ingredients seem to be of good quality. perhaps it had too much salt, or the wrong flour (i used all purpose)?

and also, i was wondering, would using all purpose flour, as opposed to bread flour make a really big difference?
and can anyone recommend a fool proof recipe for bread machine bread, that uses all purpose?
im open to any suggestions. especially on simple recipes. thanks everyone!

The Sacred Heart Diet. Delicious soup. Very healthy. And they actually recommend that you eat as much of the soup as you'd like! This is a great soup recipe and diet routine to readjust your body to eating healthy. I really recommend it.



I recommend this if you can control sugar cravings... I mean actual sugar. I couldnt get past the third day my last try, because I ended up binging on a CUP of brown sugar. treat yourself to sweetened tea occasionally. I think youve inspired me to get back to it. Afterall its winter, and who doesnt love soup in the winter?
