For Brenda (BBQ)

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

If you are considering a bread machine you could sift through the info at this site:

http://www.google.ca/search?q=ratings%2C+bread+machines&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

If you have a mixer like this it would do the job as well, only you would have to give the bread a first rising in a warm place.

Yup! That's what I have. Don't use it a lot, but it sure makes short work of kneading!

If you have a French or Italian breadmaker recipe,

You want to make french bread?? I am really good at it. Invite me over and I will show you how. I have to make some for Christmas anyway. It takes all day but only because you have to let it rise.
We can do the first part in you kitchen and I will bring bread in the different stages to show you what to do. My uncle showed me many years ago and it is a favorite everytime I serve it.
I am busy tuesday and next tuesday, other than that anytime is fine.

I resisted getting a bread machine for quite a while when they first came out. I knew others that had them and liked them , and heard of others that got one and it sat collecting dust.. I finally broke down and got a machine when they came out with the 2 pound machines on sale at a very reasonable price. I've had my machine now for over 15 years and it's still going strong. I haven't bought bread since buying the machine .

Sorry Jazz, not that simple. You still have to follow the regular procedure of bread making, I just provided the basic information.

We only use the bread maker to produce the dough after the first rising (dough setting) & then follow conventional procedures. It is very convenient compared to using a mixer as shown by both BBQ & myself.

Ohhh man now I want some homemade bread. I haven't made any since I got preggers this summer. I usually use a mixer, for the mixing and kneeding, they're soooo handy.

I wasn't able to think about baking for a while, then my kitchen was ripped up and didn't have an oven for several weeks. Now I've been told that I have Gestational Diabetes so I won't be making much bread while preggers.

I did come across this recipe though for Baguettes that I'm just dying to try. If anyone here does, let me know how it turns out.

Ven: The baguette recipes look very yummy indeed.
When I was MUCH younger I could eat a baguette in one go, and not give it a second thought! Not so any more - although I suspect Ron could!
Keep your link parked somewhere so that some of us can ask you for it some time down the road! :lol:
