i am not typically the type to make a new year's resolution. i am more in the vein of trying to improve myself year round, a-hem-hem, i did say try.
but this year i have found myself in a place where the resolution just seemed to make itself. i have been thinking for a long time how i would like to make our family's bread. (i could get up on a soap box here about high fructose corn syrup and preservatives and how expensive decent bread is at the grocery, but i'll spare you my rantings.)
a couple weeks ago we had some friends over for dinner and as i was making bread for that meal i realized just how easy it was to do this and from that moment on promised myself that my family won't be buying any bread in 2010.
right now i'm using this recipe from the favorite family recipes blog, and i like it a lot. it's easy, has very few ingredients and makes a moist bread that lily will agree to eat. the only changes i made were to use 2c whole wheat and 4c white flour (see above statement about lily being picky about her bread).
it's also nice because it makes three loaves.
but i'd love to know of other good recipes. the main reason i avoid resolutions is that i hate when they fall to the wayside but this is one resolution i feel strongly about and that i am going to work hard to keep. i'd appreciate any recipe suggestions you all may have!
