Murray and I have been baking our own bread ever since we bought our first bread machine at Christmas 2000. A lot of the time we just do the mixing and kneading in the machine and bake the bread in the oven. Some of these are done like that. The others have been made following recipes out of a book called Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. I got the book out of the library first, but I liked it so much I bought my own copy. I love making bread and have been doing it since I was a teenager in the late 70's.
