Few things can beat the smell of fresh bread baking as it drifts throughout your house. But sometimes you just don’t have the time to stop what your doing and mix up a batch, knead and bake it.

Also consider checking the local Goodwill or second hand store to see if you can find one even cheaper!
Once you start baking your own bread this way it is addicting! You could also package this up in a mason jar and gift it for a housewarming or any occasion in a basket with a pretty dish towel and a jar of jam or preserves.
