This is what "awesome" looks like!

If we could only figure out how to embed smell and taste into a blog! Until we get that technology, you'll just have to take my word on this one.

Here are some newly uploaded pictures:

I've started making all of our bread at home this year -- it's cheaper and tastes better (we don't go through bread all that quickly).

Awesome, indeed! I would love to know Mrs. H's secret. Mine never wants to rise like that.

Dear Eric:

I can't help myself! Bread is awesome. No wonder they wanted to make Jesus a king...

Dear Cyber Sis:

Mrs. H. says:

She uses yeast from a bottle, 2 rounded teaspoons (for a 1.5 lb loaf).

Also, King Arthur bread flour is awesome.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to e-mail Mrs. H. at gracebeane (at) gmail (dot) com.

Fr. Hollywood,
I bake our bread in a breadmaker about once a week. The smell is the same though. I agree, I can't help myself either. Bread and chees. Especially cheese fried in a skillet until it is nice and crispy! ;-)

Thanks Fr. & Mrs. H.
I'll give it a whirl!

Judas at the bakery, it took me a minute to get it that the post was not praising Mrs H but the bloody bread.

Growing up you could still find some good dark whole grain German style bread, which I still prefer to anything else. Hell, at the abbey they made their own, nicknamed Johnnie bread -- not to be confused with Johnny Cake.

I say, I may be white bread, but I don't have to eat it!

Mrs. H must have something in common with my wife. Bonnie bakes bread too and the loaves last a day if we're lucky. (although I must admit the loaves Mrs. H has in the picture could feed an army.)

Stores/restaurants just can't touch the cooking of a good Lutheran!!!
