much better {bread}

i tried again. i'm bound and determined to make good, homemade bread. the kind my kids will remember and try to replicate. [note i haven't had the courage to replicate my mom's recipe...i just couldn't bear to ruin that recipe, so i will wait until i have developed my bread making skills just a bit more.]

so today i tried this recipe: honey whole wheat bread. and wah-la. i think it actually turned out. now the true test is the days following. even my last attempt was okay on it's baking day. however, the next few days...dry, course...bleh. so here's to hoping that this recipe will weather just a bit better. i'll keep you posted.


  1. You are adorable. Bread totally intimidates me. I'll watch you go through your trial and error and let you perfect it then maybe give it a try. :)

  2. That looks very yummy. If you are interested I have a fabulous whole wheat bread recipe that doesn't have a double raise (it just raises in the pans) it is easy and tastes better than any other whole wheat recipes I've tried.
    Your loaves look beautiful. I've always heard taking pictures of food is hard, but you make it look easy.
    Take care,

  3. Mmmmm..that looks awesome. I am going to have to try this recipe. See ya in just a couple months!!

  4. Tyler just saw me looking at this post from across the room. He saw the picture from far away and said, "Are those bum cheeks? Did someone get a sunburn?" Hehe... I think the bread looks delicious.

  5. Hey...it looks awesome! I kind of gave up trying to make my mom's bread too, but I found one that is a lot easier and taste pretty similar. My kids really like it. Let me know if you want the recipe.
