My first loaf of bread!

Or at least my first successful loaf of bread! I don't know why I have not been able to bake one before...

We were given a bread machine as a wedding gift and I tried it once 5 years ago with some friends but it didn't turn out. Then a week or two ago I tried two different bread mixes I had in the cupboard. I put one in the bread machine (just dough cycle) and it never rose. Then the second box I mixed and kneaded myself and it never rose either! Frustrating!

But today my wonderful mother-in-law came over with her recipe and it worked! It is so delicious! Thanks Kathy!

  1. Great job Ame! Your loaf looks quite impressive! My wonderful mother in law (and gramma in law!) make bread almost daily so I have picked up their "tradition"! It's so fun! Just this week I've made three batches of flax rolls... yum! Before ya know it you'll be a bread makin fool, I'm sure Matt won't complain! Haha, I just thought of our "Proverbs 31" days... I have to say we're doing pretty good! :) Just kidding!
