I want to bake bread

I have never really tried and I am kind of scared to try but I want to learn. Amy, I wish you were closer!!! I know you make pizza crust, do you make your own bread too? I have a loaf in the bread machine right now but dumping water, mix and yeast into a machine just isn't the same as actually making the mix and kneading it yourself! I have found a couple sites that I might have to read and reread till I am brave enough to try. Any hints, tips, ideas and encouragement are greatly appreciated!!!!!
Great for toast sandwiches, but just as good untoasted with a bit of homemade plum jam.Toxo Bread

Wish me luck and courage!

I make my own bread and I love "Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day" and "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day." They were gifts from my MIL. They have some great staple recipes and some fun/different ones, too. I have found it to be pretty easy and they taste great!

Check out my Pinterest boards. I am LOVING baking bread lately. You need to move back closer and we can bake bread and you can join my new play group I started today. :) The best tip I have learned lately is that the temp of the water is supposed to be 115 degrees for yeast to thrive.
