Bread Day

 Good morning,

The bread smells and looks wonderful today.   There is nothing like having fresh bread in the house.  It's funny that we had a slice of store bread the other day after not having it for months and were amazed at the way it felt, smelled, and tasted.  To put it simply, it's just not the same....

It was rainy outside yesterday so terrible lighting to take pictures for the shop.  I've finished another Lady Bug Baby outfit to restock the one recently sold and would love to have some sunshine to get good pictures of it. 

I hope Spring (or Fall if you in the Southern Hemisphere) is beautiful wherever you are!

All the best,


Update:  We had a couple of rays of sunshine so was able to go outside and photo the new Lady Bug Baby Sweater Set and get it into the shop.  Yay!  The images look so much better when I have sunshine.

I am impressed that you do not use a bread machine and do it all manually. Congratulations!

Hi Gigi,

I do use the bread machine for the first mix of ingredients together, then take the dough out, beat it up a bit, put it in the oven with just the light turned on for the first rise, then take it out and beat it up some more, then put it in the pans and let it rise again before baking. Yummy every time!
