Store-bought bread can be expensive. I also don’t care for added preservatives and sugar. And the fact is nothing tastes as good as fresh, homemade bread!
I bake bread using a bread machine I received as a gift, but you can find bread machines on sale or even at garage sales or from neighbors who don’t use them. (A friend of mine offered to give hers to me at no cost simply because she never used it!)
Homemade bread tends to be healthier. I can control what and how much goes into a loaf. Plus, I avoid the preservatives, added sugars, and tons of salt. Usually I make whole grain bread, but my husband loves a good French loaf style. I’ve even made sourdough with success.
I save money by baking homemade bread. I bake a few loaves at a time and then freezing them. Whenever the current loaf is almost devoured, I’ll thaw a frozen one.
Homemade just tastes better! I don’t think my husband and I could go back to the store-bought version, and that’s just fine by me and our budget!
My aunt got my hooked on this wonderful wheat bread. I hope you enjoy it too.
