When I was in middle school one of the families I babysat for had a bread maker. Pour in the ingredients, press start, and a few hours later you have fresh bread! I thought this was awesome and making bread was a perfect activity during our breaks from Super Mario.
Fast forward a few years later and my sweet husband told his mother how fondly I talked about making fresh bread and I got my very own bread maker for Christmas. I was very excited about the gift, but somehow it took eleven months before I finally made bread. I followed the basic recipe from the manual which makes a two pound loaf. Two pounds of bread is a bit much for two people, unless you eat a sandwich every day. The bread was just as good as I remembered and so easy to make. I’ll have to make a smaller recipe next time. I also started pinning some other ideas…bagels, pretzels, pizza dough.
What appliance or gadget have you been wanting for years?
