Have I mentioned how much I love my bread machine?

Oh yeah, that's because I hate it!!!

Aidan and I decided to make bread yesterday. Here is our brilliant result:

These really don't show all of the horror that was our "bread"

So, in the middle of Aidan's nap I realize that we are not going to have fresh bread for dinner.

So I pulled up the french bread post and started over. It turned out great!!

I will definitely make it again. Next time I will cut the recipe in half because it is too big for my mixer, but it still turned out great. Mine wasn't quite as crusty as hers looks.. maybe I needed to cook it longer or something.. we'll see. Thanks for the great recipe.

I've always been intimidated by bread. I think I'm going to give these loaves a try, though. Thanks!

Hahahaha, your bread story reminds me soooooo much of some of the sad mishappen loaves that my mother labored to produce during my childhood. To this day, I still can't understand how Mom (a brilliant baker in all other respects) could never produce a decent loaf of bread!
Maybe it's genetic...
