easy homemade bread

Today I made this bread…

And got this response…

It was really simple and it’s REALLY good. And I got immense satisfaction out of the whole process, it felt so domesticated. 🙂

Oh my word. Scroll down to the colic post and look at the picture of little screaming Juno, then scroll up and look at her today. Is it just me or is motherhood the longest fleeting moment ever experienced? The days can D R A G but the years seem to fly.

    Wow, I didn’t know that photo was supposed to be Juno. She looks like she was in PAIN… and so were you at the distance you held her. I’m glad the colic days are over and yes, those were very long days. Now look at our kids!

      That pic was actually jus after her first bath- she hated it! We were laughing a bit at her extreme protest, I was just holding her away so I didn’t have to be in the picture! 🙂 but yes, she was in pain every night (and so was I!), poor little creature!

    That is the cutest smile! I am so glad your children and you liked the bread. It’s so yummy, we make it a lot and use it as our “sandwich bread” but it goes perfect as a snack or even with dinner.
    Thanks for making and trying out my recipe!

    At the risk of sounding stupid, what does “proof your yeast” mean? 🙂 I really want to try this bread! I’ve only made bread in the machine, but have been wanting to make loaves the ‘old fashioned’ way (for sandwiches b/c the bread we buy is WAY too expensive!) and if you say this recipe’s good & easy, then that’s good enough for me and I’m going to give it a try!! 🙂

    So just read the recipe again…is ‘proofing a word to describe the first part? (i.e. the water/sugar and yeast and letting it sit?) Or is it something that I’m supposed to do before that even? 🙂 Oh my…I bake alot, but homemade bread is foreign territory to me! 🙂

      I didn’t know proofing either! It is just that first bit, with the warm water and sugar and yeast… At least, I just followed the instructions exactly and it turned out.

    proofing means that you put the yeast in warm water and make sure that it still bubbles, and is active. This youtube might help
