I had forgotten how good homemade bread is. It really does make store-bought bread taste like cardboard. I thought I needed a bread machine to make bread at home, but Amanda was kind enough to point me to this great recipe for light wheat bread that only requires your hands, or in my case, a mixer with the dough attachment. (Yeah, I’m still lazy.) This bread is really amazing, so I highly recommend you try it out. This is the third loaf I’ve made, and the first picture of it I took, because we had a hard time not eating it before I remembered to grab the camera. That’s how good it is. And I trimmed my rose bush out front, so now I have pretty flowers in my kitchen. :)

I love this bread too! This last loaf I made, I used a little brush and brushed on coconut oil all over the top to soften it and it really helped the bread not get as crusty over the week. You could probably use butter or olive oil too…but I would highly recommend it. It also darkens the top and it looks just like store-bought! yay!
I have been wanting to make this bread for a long time now. . . just haven’t had the time. :( Someday I’ll get around to it!
