Homemade bread

Today’s lunch was a tasty sandwich on my husband’s yummy homemade bread. Sun-dried tomatoes paired with fresh rosemary from the garden gave it its nubbly orange appearance accented with tiny bits of green. It tasted even better than it looks.


In our house we love homemade bread. Our last (and pictured) sun-dried tomato bread was an inspiration had by me and husband Steve. Our 11-year old daughter Amina is planning some oat bread later this week. Her inspiration came from her own tastes and a picture in a children’s cookbook.


There was a time when I would lovingly knead, shape and bake my own bread. There’s little more satisfying than creating a beautiful loaf of bread from just flour, water, salt and yeast. But times have changed and I no longer have the time in the kitchen that I used to, so not only does Husband make the bread these days, but, owing to his busy schedule as well, the bread machine comes into play. Although it doesn’t do quite the same job as hand kneading (I’ve done a bake off between me and machine), it does a fine job for our everyday bread. 


We love to throw in all sorts of goodies to liven up our bread. Past favorites have been parmesean cheese (use LOTS), black pepper (freshly ground) and an assortment of nuts and seeds.

    I enjoyed making that bread, and I’m delighted that you’re enjoying eating it! Thank you for sharing it with the world. By the way, you forgot the secret ingredients — buttermilk and grated Romano cheese…
