Well, I'll Be We Did It!!!

After about one month of investigating all the brands of breadmakers and asking opinions at last we purchased one and guess what!!!! the bread is not only gorgeous to look at but delightful to eat.
I have to thank Debbie for helping me decide as after reading lots of reviews we found that many people found that some brands left a lot of mix on the sides of the bowl,others did not brown the loaf,etc.
Debbie told me about her machine ,(thanks Deb)and we found that the machine we chose did it beautifully with lovely crusty outside and delicious inside. So thankyou Deb and now we are another step closer to being more "simple"lol.
We also did our first batch of soap today, and when my brother came for lunch he decided we are going "ferral".
I must say he is enjoying the fruits of our labour as we had devilled meatloaf and warm fresh bread(he asked for some to take home) and then he inspected our soap which is still setting so guess he may like some of that too.
We  are enjoying our adventures in starting everything from scratch,the down side is when I get all the makings of things out Bob is in the kitchen too!! lol he is loving it and we have found more things we can do to  together.

So with the home still smelling of fresh baked bread and lime scented soap I guess you could say we are feeling warm and fuzzy on this public holiday and still enough of the day left to wrap some birthday pressies for friends this week and do a little knitting and sewing. Bless you all.


  1. I hope you as a happy with your machine as I am with mine. Everyone loves a fresh loaf of bread :0). Making soap is not a hard as it sounds is it and using it feels so good and it doesn't dry your skin like bought soap. You are definitely living 'simply'......feels good doesn't it.

  2. Bread looks great Carole. We had a soap making day here at my place the other day.
    Blessings to you.

  3. Mmmmmm, nothing smells better, or tastes better, than fresh homemade bread!


  4. I have been thinking of buying a bread machine, have been researching the different brands. I really like the looks of your machine and that yummy looking loaf it turned out. Gerry
