When I was growing up, my mom used to make sourdough starter and delicious sourdough rolls for all the holidays. She also taught us to make a variety of quick breads like this Amazing Banana Bread or this Lemon Zucchini Bread. Once I got married, I was given a bread machine by my mother-in-law and loved how easy it was to put a loaf of bread in for supper, or make a loaf of cinnamon bread for breakfast.
In more recent years, my husband discovered Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. When we remember to make up the dough over the weekend, we can make all kinds of fabulous bread from the basic dough throughout the week.
In the end though, there is just nothing quite like making your own bread from start to finish on the day you serve it. Mixing the dough. Resting the dough. Kneading the dough. Letting it rise. It’s almost a sacred process dating back centuries and allowing us to provide for our families in a very hands-on way. Bread-making is almost therapeutic.
