I wish I had more time on my hands (doesn't everyone?). I'd bake bread for my family every single week. There is just something about pulling those fresh loaves out of the oven and smelling their warm, yummy, goodness that makes you feel good about life. When the loaves are still warm, I will cut a piece for the kids and spread a little butter and honey. It makes them happy, which makes me happy.
I've been working on this recipe for some time now. It still needs some work. The flavor is excellent--a little sweet and just the right wheat/white flour combination. But the consistency could use some work. My loaves always feel a bit heavy and not as light and airy as I hoped. They aren't like bricks or anything but they do feel a bit dense. If you have any advice, please share. It is a work in progress!
