Get that out of your mouth

 If you have a  loaf of store made bread in your cupboard, take a few minutes to read the ingredients. There are words on the label that I can’t pronounce, let alone spell.

I started making my own bread about five years ago when I purchased a brand new bread maker at a yard sale for $5.00.   The price was low as the recipe book was missing.    I solved that by locating the manufacturer on line and requesting a booklet by email.  After mastering the basic recipes, I purchased the Bread Machine Gourmet on sale for $6.99. 

But my favourite (and the easiest bread recipe ever) is Easy Health Bread from the Lactose-Free Family Cookbook.   No bread machine required.

Another easy bread recipe is the New York Time’s No Knead Bread recipe.

Whatever recipe you use, do yourself and your family a favour, learn to bake a loaf of bread.  Not only will it be delicious, you will also be able to pronounce all of the ingredients.

    I used to bake bread too.
    it is such a lovely feeling to eat fresh bread.

  3. Grocery store bread is THE WORST. I make my own breads, too, and it is so worth it. That NYT no-knead bread is the best ever and I make it more often now than any of my other favourites. It’s just so fantastic… People are so intimidated by breadbaking, but it’s so easy once you get the knack!

    Andrea, you must be remembering the shredded wheat bread I made back then, plus the sour dough biscuits.
