I really did have a Last Week’s Loves post mostly written but then yesterday got the best of me and I didn’t get it finalized and posted…so maybe next week I’ll do a Last Two Week’s Loves post! But for now, back to Taste Tuesday. My biggest weakness, more than salty snacks or chocolate, is bread. I LOVE CARBS. And not the good kind. The baskets of delicious white bread that come on the table before you eat at a restaurant, fresh white rolls, thick pizza dough, really bad for you kind. Needless to say I’ve been making an effort to cut down on my bread consumption. But when I do have bread in the house, I try to make my own instead of buying it. Since it’s time consuming to make bread I figure I’m less likely to make it very often. It has been awhile since I’ve had bread in the house so I decided to make some this weekend. This recipe for Country Seed Bread from my ever reliable Complete Canadian Living Cookbook is great. It’s got some whole wheat and good for you seeds like flax and sesame…it almost feels like I should be able to eat it for every meal. (SEE? It’s a slippery slope….) But regardless, it’s delicious and relatively simple as far as making bread goes. I made the recipe last week and here is the recipe in pictures.
And VOILA you have homemade bread!
Not so hard, right? It is a time commitment, but not actually ‘making’ it, that takes no time. Most of the time consists of waiting for the bread to rise and the baking time. You just need to be around your house for a few hours and work it in between doing other things.
Have you ever made homemade bread!
