this year I will make bread


After many days of being cooped up in the house. I was feeling beyond a little CRAZY... So I up and decided to make bread.

I have never made a loaf of bread before (i know... gasp) So I just searched on the internet and found what looked to be a good whole wheat recipe.

I have to admit, it turned out pretty darn good for a first timer, and bobby didn't mind the warm yummy loaf.

This is definitely something worth perfecting. So if any of you have a favorite recipe for whole wheat bread you love, I would love to hear about it.

I think 2009 is the year that I will bake bread. And maybe if I'm really good, someday Santa will get me a wheat grinder...

Here are two of my favorite bread recipes. They are both hard to mess up and delish!

ok, once you give all the recipes a try, pass the best ones on to me. i am totally lame about making bread, but i LOVE the idea (and the memories) of a loaf of wheat bread fresh from the oven. . .

and, your loaf is beautiful! (ha. that sounds funny)

I have a great recipe that I love that I'd be happy to share. I love it because it uses no oil/shortening (applesauce in place) and no sugar (honey only), but still tastes yummy! Although I don't know . . . yours looks pretty perfect! Way to go!

I saw your comment about needing a good stylist on my sister Monica's blog. If you ever want our sister Lauren's number, let me know. :) Sherri

I have the same goal this year! Only Santa DID bring me a wheat grinder. Maybe I should open the box...
