A little everyday chit chat around the table...like we all used to do around my Grandmothers' tables when I was growing up. A little of this...a little of that...nothing too special...but as the years pass, all of it seems so. Come, sit at the Table, contribute, enjoy, stay as long as you want, leave when you need to, and return often!
Nancyfound a recipe from Dan Lepard (one of our favorite bread bakers) for a sandwich bread called Simple Milk Loaf, well, actually her husband found the recipe while looking through the recipe book and suggested she make it.
She made it, they loved it, and she proceeded to rave about it to the rest of us who bake on Twitter together each week. She kept raving about it. And raving about it. So, finally, just so that I could say I made it, I tried it.
That was a couple of months ago and it is now the definitive bread in our house. I have made probably 50 loaves of this bread, and also used it countless times to form into pans of dinner rolls. We all love it.
It is great for eating out of hand, sandwiches, toast, and very nice for grilled cheese, the real test of a good bread around here with teens. Okay, I admit it, me, too. I cannot remember the last time I actually bought a loaf of bread at the store. This recipe is so easy and is so good that no one here wants to go near the bread aisle at the store anymore.
If you would like the recipe, click here for Nancy's post on it all, including the recipe link. Her photos are way better than mine. I hope you try it...then you can rave about it to all your friends and soon hardly anyone will be buying bread in the stores anymore...thanks, Nancy!
