Hi, everyone! I tell you what—getting my head back into blogging and finding my voice has been challenging. I’ve been brainstorming some topic ideas to find things that show who I am while rediscovering myself and redefining who I am since I was widowed. I’m getting there, and life is good, if not ridiculously busy.
One of the things I’ve been working on is making things—all kinds of things, including bread. I have an awesome mixer that I’ve hardly used. I found a few honey wheat bread recipes to use for school lunches.
The first one I tried, was… not good bread. It wasn’t bad, but I’m pretty sure that I left it alone to rise for too long. It rose and then fell. Not school lunch worthy.
The second one was simpler and only an hour to complete. Here’s the website where I found the recipe. You can use it even if you don’t have a mixer to do the kneading for you.
Because my oven runs about 50 degrees hot, I added about 15 minutes to the time for letting the dough rise and watched it closely.
My house smells so good with that fresh-baked bread smell!
The results were perfect! Yay! School lunches have been saved. 🙂
Do you bake? Do you have any mixer recipes? Please, share!
