When my son was in Kindergarten he come one day asking to bake bread. He was so excited about it! They had read a book in school that day all about baking bread and it got him really interested.

I searched for a really long time though to actually find the book he was talking about! After a long search, we finally found it: Bread Comes to Life.

For a lot of people, bread can be intimidating. But it’s actually very easy (and fun). More so thanks to this one hour bread recipe!

There is nothing better than dipping a piece of fresh warm bread in a bowl of soup or in the morning as french toast. And sometimes homemade bread is SO good you don’t want anything but butter or jam on it!

I have never tried to make bread, but it sure could be a great activity to do tomorrow while we're stuck in the house from the snow storm!
