I’ve wanted to make my own bread for as long as I can remember. I even considered the idea of a bread maker for a couple of years and would stop at look at them in the store every so often, but never brought one home. Well the other day I was reading Suzanne’s blog and found Grandmother bread! I read through a few of the posts and it sounded like it was easy to make. Then I saw the post of her daughter making bread and that really motivated me. If a young girl can make bread, so can I, right? So I did it. Right then and there and it turned out delicious! It was so easy too! I don’t know why I’ve been so scared of making my own for so many years but it might have something to do with all the complicated recipes that I’ve seen in my cookbooks and online.

I like the idea of this recipe being handed down for so many generations too. It makes me feel like I’m part of the past in some small way. Thanks for sharing it with us Suzanne :)

Congratulations, Connie!  Keep making it, too!!     Shimmy

You will discover that it will not always come out exactly the same as it did the last time you made it – and no one can tell you exactly why that is, because conditions in YOUR kitchen will never be just like they are in someone else’s kitchen.  That can be a little frustrating, sometimes, but is also the big part of the JOY of making you own!  It will almost always turn out soooo much better than the stuff filled with who knows what that we buy commercially!

If you haven’t found it yet, there is a section here in the forum with bread questions where we address a lot of questions about bread making.  Like yes, you use more flour on humid days than on very dry days.

What fun!  Most of all, enjoy this process of discovery!!  We LOVE to hear about your journey – so feel free to share any time you want to!

Isn’t it a thrill to make your own bread?  It tastes so much better and much more economical……..and a flexible dough!

Thanks Suzanne! I’ll go check that out now. I think I remember reading a post for the pizza dough. That will be amazing, I’m sure!

I’m also really happy to have discovered Suzanne’s Grandmother bread (and all its yummy variations)!  I tried the 5 minute artesian bread, but the g’ma bread is so much better and so much easier to work with.  And the raisin bread and cinnamon rolls are to die for!!
