I haven't made fresh, homemade bread in the longest time. I even gave my bread machine away about a year ago because I never used it. But using a bread machine is like cheating to me. It's taking a shortcut and I know that bread from the oven tastes better than bread from a machine. At least that's my humble opinion.
So today I decided to take out my apron and make some homemade sandwich bread. The results? DELICIOUS!!! My hubby came home to a loaf baking in the oven. He might not admit it, but I think he misses the days when I was a baking queen. After a lip-smacking, good dinner, we all had a slice of warm bread with melted butter. The kids enjoyed adding jam to it and I drizzled a little bit of honey on mine. And as I looked over to hubby's face, I knew that I was the reigning queen once more. Heavenly!
