Bread Maker

While we were at my parents house over Christmas I scored their old bread maker that they never use anymore. Ask and you shall receive. Mike and I have been wanting one for awhile so we could make our own homemade bread deliciousness. I also want to make my own yogurt. More on that later.

We couldn't wait to get home to try out the machine. The first loaf we made was good old fashioned white bread. It was soooo good. This bread made the absolute best peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Plus, our house smelled really good while it was baking.

Mike made a loaf of sourdough two days ago. Yesterday morning he made breakfast sandwiches with it using bacon, egg, tomato and cheese. Fantastic!

Then, last night I made these fabulous homemade breadsticks to go with our pizza.

It's a good thing we've started this couch potato to 5K training program to offset all of the carbs we're taking in right now. Next on my list is a loaf of buttermilk whole wheat bread for lunches this week and some cinammon raisin bread for breakfast. Thanks mom and dad!


  1. I'm so glad you are able to use it. I looked everywhere for the the directions and recipes that came with it and couldn.t find them. So glad you are using it. Love, Mom

  2. it's okay, we got everything for free online
