I love bread. It's that simple. I probably could live off of of a baguette and some french butter for every meal. I attempted to make some french bread in middle school after learning about it in my home economics class. The loaf of bread was as hard as a baseball bat so needless to say it wasn't edible. It did look pretty though.

A few days ago, Amazon's deal of the day was a bread maker. I was tempted to go ahead and purchase it because it was a really good deal, but the reviews weren't that great. My hubby surprised me later that day with a new bread maker to cheer me up from my bad day. I was so excited to make my first loaf of bread.

I decided to make a Cinnamon Swirl Raisin loaf. I'll have to admit that I was a bit nervous when I first took it out of the machine.

However, after I sliced it open, I fell in love with my bread machine. It was so yummy.

I can't wait to make something different.


  1. that is the most beautiful loaf of bread! are you making the bread from scratch or with a mix? i have a machine I picked up at a yard sale but I have no idea how to make bread in it so it just sits in the cabinet- way to go hubs what a great gift!

  2. Jaime, I just followed the instructions in the booklet that came with the bread maker. I did notice that they sold some bread maker recipes on Amazon.
