Homemade Bread Day

I blogged about this last year -- Homemade Bread Day. I think I posted a recipe for bread using a crock-pot. Click here if you want to see it. That's a weird recipe because you cook the bread right in the crock-pot, not in a pan in the crock-pot. It turned out really good, which surprised me.

But alas, it's Homemade Bread Day once more! What are some of your favorite types of breads? As a kid, my mom always bought white bread, so that's what I grew up on. As I got a little older, she switched to wheat, which is what I prefer now. In fact, I can barely even eat white bread. The boys eat a whole-grain white bread by Franz, which they like a lot. Rick's the big bread eater in the family. He loves sourdough, French, Hawaiian Sweet bread, and more. Give me a really grainy whole-wheat and I'm happy.

Quick breads were always a big deal at my house when I was a kid during the Holidays. My mom was a nurse and they always had Christmas parties at the hospitals she worked at. I remember quick breads being really popular at those. Some of my favorites are banana nut, pumpkin, cranberry, and zucchini. Gingerbread is good this time of year too. Since today is Homemade Bread Day, I wanted to make something, but I'm not sure what. I'm making homemade chili next week, so I'll wait and make cornbread with that. I'll have to see what I can come up with once we're done with school for the day. I might do the crock-pot one, now that I think about it. So anyway, what are your favorite types of breads? Do you make them by scratch? From a box? In the oven? In a bread machine? Or buy them at the store?

Bread is a popular word, if you think about it. I thought it would be fun to list bread terms. Not so much types of bread, but things that relate to the word bread itself. If you think of any others, please feel free post them in the comments. And whatever you do -- have a Happy Homemade Bread Day!

  1. Wow - that is a lot of breads!

    I admit it, I love bread- all kinds from sour dough to day old dipped in olive oil! Garlic bread - yummy. If there is bread, I will try it!

    And yes, we do have a bread maker but that is a kitchen appliance right? lol So, yes, Vince makes bread.
