Scrumptious Saturday - Homemade Bread

Have you ever attempted homemade bread? If not, this recipe is the easiest and most full proof I've found. It's definitely time consuming, BUT when you pull that fresh loaf of warm bread out of the oven, and the entire thing is gone an hour later, you'll see it's worth it.

Don't make fun of the title of the website I'm going to send you to for this recipe. I'm a little on the frugal side, and sometimes I take drastic measures :)

Anyhow, with this recipe, the "lukewarm" water (which has ALWAYS messed me up) can err to the side of being too warm. Use the temperature you'd use to wash your hands. When you add the yeast to the dry ingredients rather than activating it with water on it's own first, you can use much warmer water without killing the yeast; it actually helps to activate it.

That said - wow your friends and family with this recipe. Remember you can't ever knead too much! Enjoy your bread and find the recipe here
