Comments: Bread! Glorious Bread!

Munu ate my comment, so I'll try again - that bread looks so very good, I can only imagine how good it tastes and smells! The book looks wonderful; I'm really tempted. Naturally, I started a low-carb diet three weeks ago...not sure I could control myself if I started baking bread again!

Other than eating it out of hand and as sandwiches, have you tried anything else - breadcrumbs from leftovers, french toast, croutons? Not that a loaf lasts long enough in my house to become any of those things, but I wonder how it would work?

Lovely! I think that bread making is about the most satisfying of occupations. Well, doubly so when it works out! :)

Diane, we haven't had any last long enough to try with leftovers, but I think it would be good for many uses. There is a recipe for challah in the cookbook, which I suppose would make excellent French toast, just like any other challah does. I haven't tried it yet though.

I love that book too. I am deferring the purchase as I am trying to not eat too much bread (gestational diabetes), but looking forward to getting it after baby arrives. It is actually easy enough to fathom doing with a little baby around too.

I've been thinking about buying a bread machine. Maybe I'll try borrowing that book instead... You're SO making me hungry!!

Right before Passover.

Gee, thanks.

Three cheers for good bread! This looks great. I make lots of "normal"/boring bread but have yet to get over my fear of pita and bagels. Thanks for the inspiration.

I actually made passable spinach feta bread- twice!- today. The first loaf was better, though, and was devoured almost instantly by the five of us. Thanks for the tip!

(no waitlist at our library for this one!)

Yes, naan! I don't think it is exactly like I can get at a restaurant, but it's a good approximation.

Yay, Lenise. That's one of the recipes I want to make, but haven't yet.
