My birthday gift this year was the result of a thoughtful friend and a giving husband. My friend T knew I had talked about wanting a bread maker for some time. She has one and uses it daily for their "daily bread." There's plenty of bread in Turkey, but to eat any type of whole grain or wheat, you basically feel like you are eating unflavored croutons in big slice form. I had checked into bread makers, and they were pricey, so I just held off. As my birthday approached, T found out about a family who was moving away, had a bread maker to sell, and had only used it a couple of times. T called CC. CC was happy....a gift I wanted, and he didn't have to shop!We have used it at least daily since February 9. A fresh hot loaf of wheat bread (with butter and honey, of course) takes the place of cereal many days for breakfast. Cinnamon rolls are a snap. I even found a recipe for a bread like the Pepperidge Farms cinnamon swirl raisin bread. It was delicious, and Sweet Cheeks cried loudly, "Grandma makes this!!!" (We'll just let her keep thinking that.) I plan to try new things. Anyone have suggestions?
