Things I Love: Bread

If I could only bake one thing for the rest of my life, I’m pretty sure it would be some sort of bread.

You can make it plain, you can make it sweet, you can make it savory. You can spread on some peanut butter, slather on some jam, or coat it in butter. Toasted or not. Grilled around some cheese, filled with spices and fruit, or diced and baked into breakfast or dessert.

Bread is like the little black of dress of food – it’s always a good idea.

Here are some of our favorites, and they’re all really easy to make! Don’t be scared of bread. Your oven is begging to bake a few loaves…I can hear it from here.
