  1. Thank you CJ for the Daily Bread recipes. We were a five loaves/ week family till the kids all disappeared. Now we’re are a three and usually give on or two away depending on company. Just as you said, After all these years, there is nothing like the smell of fresh loaves coming out of the oven (aside product testing).

  2. Thank you for these great recipes. Even though I know how to cook simple things very well, I have never tried to bake bread, cake, pie, or anything. The oven on my new range has never been used in the over a year that I have had it. Baking just looks too intimidating. But I think that I will try baking some of this bread. I think that baking bread was on the list of things that Robert Heinlein said that every man should be able to do. Well, maybe not…
    “A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” Maybe it is covered by the words “Cook a tasty meal”.

  3. Thanks for the article! When I had a full house I made bread every weekend to get us thru the week. Now there are only two of us; so I use a bread machine. I found that with all bread recipes the amounts can vary a little depending on your location and altitude.

  4. This is such a timely article! I just mentioned to my husband this past week that I need to master this skill. I always prefer to learn from those who know more than I do, and will therefore be following your instructions and recipes.

    Would you (or anyone else here) be able to offer any guidance or advice about which type of yeast has the longest shelf life? Thank you!

    1. Here at the ranch, we keep blocks of powdered dry yeast in the freezer. They seem to keep for years, with no perceptible difference in their rising performance, once we thaw them out.

  5. I’m celiac so we make our gluten free bread weekly. Found a great mix and bought a case of 24. So simple, and as Jimmy would say, free smells, and fresh bread. And some think there is no God…fools, one and all.
