As a new cook, this technique makes bread making easy. I always watched my mom make bread, and I thought it was too complicated. Now with Nancy Baggett's updated technique it's easy to make bread! I love the way that you can make the dough and adjust the rising time to fit your schedule. This way you can make the dough the night before, let it rise, complete a few more steps, and you have freshly made bread! The directions are easy simple and easy to follow. I can't wait to gather more ingredients so that I can make some more bread! Enjoy!
