Homemade Bread!

Recently I’ve really been into the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day ! I just can’t rave enough about how wonderful it is to have fresh baked bread and the sense of accomplishment I feel whenever I make it. AND the added bonus that my kitchen smells wonderful! Here’s a light whole wheat loaf I made:

Sliced Bread!

Sliced Bread!

It’s called “light” because it is a mixture of whole wheat and white flours. It has a light and crunchy texture and is perfect for sandwiches. Like this one:
Veggie Sandwich

Mixed baby greens, avocado, cucumbers, red onions, and a lovely German Stripe heirloom tomato all from the farmer’s market.
Whole Wheat Rye Loaf

This whole wheat rye loaf is delicious! Dense, nutty, with a great crust. The wonderful thing about this book is that you mix a batch of dough that then you put in the fridge and you bake as much as you need. The dough keeps in the fridge for at least a week and the more you leave it in there the more complex the flavors become. It really has revolutionized my kitchen!
Eggless Tofu Salad

Eggless Tofu Salad

This here is a fantastic sandwich on the rye bread. Eggless tofu salad (tofu, vegenaise, mustard, onion, green onion, red bellpepper, salt & pepper), heirloom tomato, cucumber, pickles, and avocado! As you can see, I’m totally into heirloom tomatoes that I’ve been getting at the farmer’s market! Here is a close-up of this great “pineapple” variety:

If you are like me and love fresh baked bread I highly encourage you to seek out this book. The money you’ll save in making your own bread will pay for the purchase price pronto!

    I love that book! I got it a few months ago and I actually had to “put the book down and step away” because I was making so much bread! LOL.

    WOW! That bread is beautiful, congratulations! I love a good sandwich and yours really look amazing. I especially love tofu salad sandwiches and anything topped with avocado and a good tomato.
