Look what I got for my Birthday! Thanks Mom! I have been wanting one to make bread with. I'm convinced I can make better bread with one of these. I did make Honey Whole Wheat bread with it and it turned out the best I've done so far. The first rise was beautiful but the rise in the pans didn't seem to do to well. The bread was light and delicious just not tall enough to make sandwiches with. Any tips on what I did wrong from any bread makers out there?
Now I am looking for bread recipes. If you have any that you really like link them up in a comment for me! Thanks!
