Give us this day...

Friends, I may have to change the name of my blog.

After being totally inspired by this post by Christie at A Few of My Favorite Things, I made a little homemade bread last night. I don't know about you, but bread-making has always been an intimidating thing to me. Breadmaker machines seem to take some of the intimidation out of the process, but when I become responsible for the yeast and kneading -- yikes!

After reading Christie's post, I still was skeptical (because she is WonderWoman, and everything comes easily to her...), but I decided to give it a try. And she did not let me down! I made the dough last night and actually let it rise the 2nd time overnight and then simply turned on my oven when I woke up this morning.

My family was amazed to have freshly baked bread for breakfast.

And that, my friends, may be better than Pop Rocks.


  1. I like the name "Warm Bread for Breakfast."

    And I like warm bread for breakfast.

    Are you sure we were not twins separated at birth? I mean, our names are even the same. And SPELLED the same way.

    I think we need to get a DNA test.

  2. Um, you know my address.....


  3. That's great! I have never ever made homemade bread.

  4. Yum! I am loving the challenge and reward of making homemade bread. Come bake with me and some of my friends,

  5. I love homemade bread! That's all we eat and the first time I made I was so nervous- but if you find a good recipe a lot of the time they can be forgiving (that's the kind I have to have- the forgiving kind-lol) hope you're wonderful! bye

  6. I tried lots of recipes in my bread machine & loved them, but could never come up with a good 'sandwich' bread. So now I just buy it. The homemade stuff is SO much better, but then of course I'd eat it all :)
