home cookin'

while he was here helping prep the house for sale, eldest son asked for a lesson in bread making. his first batch of 3 loaves of whole wheat bread was perfect. and he was justifiably proud of his accomplishment.

Good for him!

Get him to try the Artisan Bread ... you can bake a fresh loaf whenever you need it and it is easy, easy!

Here is their website ... somewhere on the site is the recipe for the basic dough:

I need to know why my bread never feels light and fluffy. It tastes great, looks good, but has a dry feel and taste very quickly. I have tried egg and non-egg recipes. I once shortened the cooking time enough that the dough in the center did not cook, yet still the cooked part felt rough and dry. What am I doing wrong?

PS. Thanks for the comment on my blog. Yes we Canada.

Cicero - i checked out the artisan bread link, and sent it on... it does look like a really good way to have fresh bread whenever you want it! thanks

Salt Water - thanks for stopping by. i'm really not much of an expert any more on bread.... i can't eat it anymore without getting quite ill, so i seldom bake it, and eat it even less often..... but i did leave some possible solutions @ your blog. you might try Cicero, above's suggestion of artisan bread; i checked the videos on it, and it looks pretty good.

I'll check out the Artisan bread too - good tip from Cicero.

I see what you meant about the artistic tattoos. They look good on him.

su - he's going for full sleeves, of his own design, with snowflakes, northern lights, and cutaway of a spruce forest on the right arm, fireweed, a flaming sun etc on the left.... i'd like them better not permanently etched into his flesh, but i have to concede that it's pretty good art. i'd be interested to know how the artisan bread works for you. i guess there's not much chance there's a gluten free version, though.
