Celebrate Homemade Bread Day!

I love to cook.  But what I love most are the stories of cooking in the family kitchen, eating at the family table, and sharing food with friends and strangers.

Bob says the smell of fresh baked bread makes a house a home.  When his mother made bread it was served with hot cocoa to dip chunks of fresh bread in.

My mom made the best hot rolls.  We always knew fresh rolls would be at the table for holidays and other family celebrations.

Now when I make bread it is gluten free.  I have a couple of recipes that are quite tasty but not as much fun to make.  You don’t get to punch and push around gluten free dough like you do wheat dough, but that’s another story.

Do you have a favorite bread story?  Did your mom or grandma make bread?  Do you?  Tell us about it.

“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.” ~Charles H. Spurgeon
