Must resist

I just pulled this loaf of homemade bread out of the oven. It is incredibly tempting to resist cutting into it --- it smells so, so good! But I somehow must resist until it cools...

After practically giving up hope that I could make bread, I finally decided to give it one more try last weekend. I was encouraged by my friends that even I could do it. (I've had many many many failed attempts in the past usually resulting in beautiful bricks. My bread never seems to rise unless I cheat and use the bread machine someone gave us at our wedding.) Last weekend, I used the recipe here since it seemed straight-foward and came with step-by-step pictures. When I checked on the dough after it's hour rise I literally screamed and did a little dance when I found that it had doubled in size just like it was supposed to! It was a first! A miracle! The bread turned out wonderfully and disappeared in the blink of an eye.

Today, to test if my last success was a fluke or not, I decided to make the same recipe again. It worked! Again! I just may turn into a bread baker after all...

Now your bread is tasty and still looks great. This isn't fair. I've always thought it was impossible to get bread that looked and tasted good.

Nicely done! I'll keep that recipe on file and try it sometime.
