Homemade Bread…Yummy!

Brian bought me a bread machine for Christmas.  I have been asking for one, but I really wasn’t sure if I’d use it.  Yes, I’d love to have one…but would I really make enough bread to warrant the purchase?!!?  Well, I’ve used it 4x since Christmas, and I LOVE it.  I’ve made a country white loaf, a French country loaf, and I’ve used it 2x for pizza dough. 
I’m very happy with the purchase, and I see myself using it more and more as time goes on.  I know I’ll definitely be making most of our pizza crust from here on out…it’s just too easy, and it’s tasty, too!
Here are some pictures of my bread making…I’m no expert, and I’m sure I’ll learn tips and tricks as I experiment more.  However, if YOU have any tips or tricks to using a bread machine, then please share!  I have the Oster Express Bread Maker (it actually makes gluten-free bread, but we’re not doing that just yet).

What’s your favorite type of bread to make?  We’ve loved all of it so far.

I got a bread machine for my birthday and love it! I have made honey white bread, honey whole wheat bread and 100% whole wheat bread. They have all turned out yummy especially when they are hot. I also got The Breadlovers Bread Machine Cookbook. It is filled with all kinds of recipes.
