Is there anything better than the smell of warm yeast bread rising in your kitchen? You may think that you do not have time to bake bread at home but I beg to differ. It’s true that a good loaf of bread may take 5 or 6 hours from start to finish but really, the yeast does all the work. There is a lot of waiting involved when making homemade bread and personally as a stay-at-home-mom there are a lot of days that I’m trying to ignore the clothes mountain forming in my laundry room. Waiting for bread to rise is much more fun. So, shall we get started?
