Day in the life 2

August 26, 2014

This may become a series as it seems my boys are always getting into something and I am always grabbing the camera to watch it unfold.  Just a normal day in the life of 5 boys.  Yep, I included DT in the count.

Homemade Italian Bread

August 23, 2014

Nothing is better then some fresh semi-homemade bread baking in the kitchen.  I took the easy route and used my trusty bread maker, and you can certainly make this fully by hand.  This bread has the perfect blend of spices and chewy, crusty dough.  Great with Italian pasta dishes or soups.  I served this with Cheeseburger soup and it was very good.  It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a recipe and it feels really good to get one out there.

Layer in the ingredient per your bread maker instructions, mine is always wet ingredient on bottom.  Milk and butter first.

Then add in the flour, spices and yeast.

Turn your maker on and let it do it’s magic.
