The book I use to make my breads

I haven't purchased one loaf, piece, baguette, roll, hot dog bun or hamburger bun in
And it's all due to the book
Do you realize how much money I have saved?
How wonderful it is knowing EXACTLY what is in the bread my family eats?
Having FRESH, tasty, wholesome, bread EVERY. SINGLE. DAY?
I have manipulated the recipes just a little by adding 3 tablespoons of FLAX SEED MEAL into
each and every batch I make.
It add 10 grams of fiber, loads of amino acids, and other natural nutrition to each loaf or
roll or breadstick I make.
I usually don't add the full tablespoon of salt either. I keep it to 1/2 tablespoon and it is
plenty salty for us.
Dive in and try this method!
I promise you won't be dissapointed.

I made BAGELS!!!

Real bagels... Blueberry and Cinnamon Raisin.
One more kind of bread I don't have to buy from the store.

No boiling, no double baking... just make the dough, form them, and bake them!
I still used the Artisan Bread idea... but changed the recipe a bit, and skipped the boiling part.
They are soft... chewy, sweet and yuummmmmyyy!
Instead of the regular boule dough I changed it like this
2 cups of water
1/2 tablespoon yeast
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 cup fresh, frozen or what I used was 1 cup of blueberry pie filling in the dough.
6 1/2 cups of flour
Stir, sit and store!
That's it!
Adrian.. ya gotta try these!!!
