bread recipes from the past

I thought I'd take the time today to return to some homemade bread recipes I've posted over the past couple years. If you had told me 2 1/2 years ago that I'd be baking bread for all of our family meals I would have laughed at you. I remember a colleuge at work once told me his family made their daily bread in a bread machine and I thought that was radical at the time! 

 I admit since the Thermomix has blessed our lives I really only hand-knead once or twice a week, the rest of the time I let the machine do the hard work for me. But even so, making your own bread is really much simpler than you could imagine even if you're doing the kneading yourself. You can also try the no-fail Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day style, which doesn't require any kneading at all. 
 When you make your own bread you are saving a lot of money, cutting out preservatives, thickeners and other additives, and controlling the ingredients entirely (as you may note, we use spelt flour instead of white flour in almost all of our recipes).
