I Bake Bread



I bake homemade bread.


Do I love it?


Would you love it too?

I do believe so.

I love this recipe so much that I thought I would print

it out on a canvas and share it with whomever might want to join in the baking folly...

I wanted it to have a time~worn patina...kind of Provencal~y and wonderful...

I Mod Podged some old dictionary pages to some of the sides of the canvas...

And burlap~ed the other sides...of course...

I think I am going to fuss with it some more...

But first...I think I will bake a loaf or two...
So for now I will hang this above the stove...

Isn't she purty?
Does my house smell amazing?


How do I have the time?

That's an easy one.

I toss the simple ingredients in my


bread machine and set the cycle to dough.

The machine {or the little kitchen fairies that live in the

older~than~the~hills bread machine} mix, knead and rise the dough.

Is magic involved?

I am certain of it!

When the machine beeps after about an hour and a half....I take the 
magical fairy made dough out and put it in bread pans or make cinnamon rolls
or cheese stuffed bread and bake!

Does the bread machine {or kitchen fairies}
do all the work?


Do I take ALL the credit?

What do you think?

Happy Wednesday my Friends...I hope it is a magical one!

Smiles ~ Ramona

Ooh, yummy! I smell it and I am so impressed - bread machine or not! I used to make homemade bread the old fashion way - kneading it's little socks off.But when I got pregnant I didn't make it any more! It's a sad sad story!
I'd love a slice with butter, please!
I'm having a party at my blog on Friday. Will you come!?
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

We were just talking about our bread machine today! They are wonderful inventions but I confess to not using mine often. You are so right, that bread fairy is wonderful!

I absolutely love home baked bread Ramona--I baked sourdough loaves twice a week for years with starter given to me by a friend.

Nothing is more delicious hot from the oven, and nothing makes the house smell more heavenly.

Oh Ramona I can almost smell that bread now!!! I bet it is DELICIOUS! I don't have a bread machine but maybe I need to get one.

Hope you are having a fabulous week!♥

Hi Ramona,
I hope you mind that I linked to you today regarding the Santos figurine. I recently got a new one (half price at Ballard Designs again) and thought I'd give you a shout out for directing me there in the first place.
The bread looks yummy over here!!!
