Bread (Photo credit: CeresB)

My daughter loaned me her bread machine a few months ago to use while she is on an extended trip with her husband.  She has made some wonderful loaves of bread, and I thought I’d take advantage of her loan to try my hand at it.  Well, so far no bread.  However, the cooler season, has got me imagining the smell of fresh bread baking, so I thought I’d give it a try.  I’m not much of a baker or cook, but this is something I think I’ll try.

So, good little library assistant that I am, first I turned to our trusty library catalog. Using the term “bread recipes” I got a list of 88 books, 44 e-books and even 3 DVDS.  If that’s not enough for you, then check some of these websites out, Bread machine recipes, http://www.bread-machine-recipes.com/, The Fresh Loaf, http://www.thefreshloaf.com/, a website which says it is for amateur artisan and fresh bread enthusiasts which looks  quite interesting.  You might also try Betty Crocker’s website: http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/courses/bread-recipes, which has recipes for handmade as well as machine made bread.  I could go on and on, there is a plethora of great bread websites out there.  Do you have a favorite?  If so, let me know, I’d love to hear from you.

Make National Homemade Bread Day a special day this year!  So fire up your oven or bread machine, and start practicing. Maybe, even get your family involved and spend some quality time together.  Start getting those supplies, so you will be all ready to bake and impress everyone with your beautiful loaves, and muffins and more!
