5 Reasons I Don't Buy Bread + Easy Recipes

Bread. Bread is a true staple in our home. There's hardly a time when our bread box is empty or void of it.

We love bread.

What I love even more than eating bread is making it. A lot of people have asked me why I bother taking the time to make our bread when the grocery stores have walls lined of the stuff, so I thought I would clarify that here. Ready?

Why I make my own bread plus an easy recipe!

Making Bread is Really Satisfying

There's just something about starting a dough, kneading it (when i use a recipe that requires kneading), and baking it. The best part for me is when the timer beeps and I take it out. I'm not going to lie - I look at it and marvel for a little bit!

I Decide What Goes In & What Stays Out

That means there are no extra preservatives added, and I feel good when I choose to use wholesome ingredients.

Making Bread is Inexpensive

This is actually the main reason I started making bread! The cost is so low, that you can afford using wholesome, healthy, organic ingredients. I seriously wish I could grow the wheat and grind it myself!

It's Easy!

Making bread isn't hard at all. Super easy, as you are about to see. I don't even use a bread maker! 

It Smells Great

Who doesn't love the smell of fresh baking bread? It makes the house smell amazing!
