Oh no bread machine. You can’t keep me down.
I’m blaming yesterday’s disaster on the book that came with the bread machine. Never again will I follow one of those recipes.
This morning I went with a recipe for tomato basil bread that I’ve had bookmarked for awhile in hopes that I’d eventually get a bread machine. It turned out beautifully and the husband gave it two thumbs up. I haven’t tried it yet but it smells really good.
