I never thought that I would be one of those ladies that actually had the time to make homemade bread. Why would you do such a thing when you can buy it in the store? I have only made a couple homemade cakes in my life. Never Bread.
While watching a TV show about baking I heard my husband commenting on how good it all looked. If you did not know my husband has to have bread at every meal. He LOVES it! I decided right then that I was going to make my husband a loaf of homemade bread. Call it an act of love. I went searching on Pinterest and found the following recipes. These recipes seemed easy and promising.
I tried the dinner rolls first. I could not believe how well they came out. They looked just like the picture. So the next day I tried the Artisan Bread. It took a couple days to make but let me tell you it was so easy and good. I started making all kinds of breads such as dinner rolls, hamburger buns to cinnamon rolls.
I found that I love kneading bread because its therapeutic. I feel so good about myself when my bread comes out like the pictures. I think it helped that I had easy recipes to start off with. I also love that its better for you in the fact it has such basic ingredients compared to store bought bread. My family loves the smell of the bread baking and they love to eat it. I know that it has shown my children that you can do anything you set your mind to. I also know that my husband can see my act of love in making his favorite breads.
For those that are curious here are some pictures of how some of my breads have turned out.
One Hour Dinner Rolls: ( I have to say I thought these would be a disaster because I did not have all the flour I needed. I substituted some all purpose flour for cake flour and had no idea what I was doing.)
So my friends, if I can do it you can do it. These breads that I listed are good and its hard to go wrong. I encourage you to try one to see how you like it. It just maybe your new hobby too.
