Homemade bread/buns
Friday, March 04, 2011

I have started making my own homemade bread/buns on a weekly basis now. I am by trade a baker so the skills are natural to me!. It costs so little to store a bag of flour and yeast to provide my family with chemical, preservative, additive free breads. I enjoy the time it takes to make it, love to watch it rise and rise again and the smell in the house can't be found in a store!  HUGS to all

Getting DH to get on board!
Saturday, September 18, 2010

I love my DH alot.but i gotta tell you all something..NEVER LET YOUR HUSBANDS GO GROCERY SHOPPING WITHOUT A LIST! He means well and it was a great refeif to see him go..BUT when he got home, i was at first excited to see how little he spent and how many bags there were..UNTIL....i relized he never got any meat at all.!!!.oh no i told him..what will we eat for the next week??? he looked at me like i had two heads! and replied don't we have some in the frezzer? One chicken we all know does not feed a family of 3 for a week..so regardless of his best intentions..there i was over spending on the grocery budget of $85.00/wk to get the essential meat my DH thought we had so much of! i've learned a hard lesson..Lists are so vital!

Who makes their own bread from Stratch?
Sunday, March 01, 2009

Does anyone make their own bread anymore? I'm talking really make it? No bread machine bread, just real old fashoined Bread you knead by hand? i have and have been reaping the rewards ever since! nothing beats the taste or smell of real old-fashoined bread from stratch! I do use my stand mixer to mix the ingredients, and nead it, but i have to let it rise, punch it down, and let it rise in the pans before i bake it. We are trying so hard to save money...WE JUST BOUGHT HUBBY A NEW CAR! (USED)YESTURDAY! SO WE HAVE EVEN MORE DEBT AND ARE ALSO SAVING TO GET A HOUSE! Any recipes would be great, or secrets on your sucess and we can share and learn to enjoy the old ways again!
