I have sooo many blogs I love to read (too many to possibly list), but this snack today was inspired by Amy at The Motherload! She has so many true life things that she shares that I always get something out of. Whether she's baking up a storm or learning to knit like a pro, her place has loads of information and I'm a devoted reader!
Well, she has tons of great content and she had a discussion one day about homemade bread. Well, that discussion inspired me to dust off (it was 10-years dusty to be exact) our old bread machine and give it a go! I don't have the manual and couldn't locate one online, but Amy posted some great instructions on using a bread machine, even missing a manual. Her instructions worked perfectly for me and I'm proud to report that this recipe turned into this…
We came home from the pool and the bread was done! My kids said, “Mom what is that good smell, can we have some?” So, I'm getting the “Mom of the Week Award” and I am on my way to becoming a domestic diva! I think this might just be more than the summer of survival, but the summer of domestication :-) Amy, my hubby will thank you immensely!
A question for all of you: Do you have any good pretzel recipes (like the Auntie Anne's pretzels) and also a bread recipe similar to the Tastefully Simple breads that use carbonated beverages? My friends and I were discussing these and thought they would be yummy too especially if we could do it ourselves! I could just make the dough in my bread machine and twist my pretzels or shape the dough from the carbonated bread and bake it in the oven. I would appreciate any tips or recipes you could share!!
- Jennifer @ Sisterly Savings posted a recipe for Cheese Bread. I can't wait to try this one!
- Tammy's Recipes has this Homemade Wheat Bread recipe. I need a healthy version to try so this will be a good one!
