it's so funny that marta posted that she's making bread because at that same moment, I was waiting for my bread to rise. I gotta be honest with you...you convinced me long ago, after my first screw-up and your formspring explanation, that baking bread was for me! I haven't bought a store-bought loaf of sliced bread in ages.
And, I bake your bread recipes exclusively. I haven't even ventured over to other blogs because your recipes are easy to understand and have such simple instructions.

Enough of my babbling--thanks Summer!

I love making bread! I tried recently and failed. I put my bread to rise on top of the warm oven. Apparently where I placed the glass bowl is the vent source for the oven so it cooked the bottom of my rising dough.

Do you have a go-to size and material for your bread loaf pans? I normally make mine in a 9x5 metal pan, but picked up an 8.5x4.5 glass loaf pan thrifting recently. The glass pan made a beautiful loaf, but took much longer to bake than my metal pans do.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
