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.
