My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, ... thank you!

Sinple Yeast Bread

I came up with this recipe this weekend and made it twice! Both times it disappeared quickly! Best for bread machine, but I'm sure you could adapt it for hand-kneaded and oven-baked.

My bread machine requires the liquid first, then flour (dry ingredients) and then the yeast. Makes a 1 pound loaf.

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar

1 cup warm water
1/4 cup oil

1 pkg or 1 teaspoon bread machine yeast

Place all ingredients in bread machine in order required by manufacturer. I use the medium crust setting and the quick bake because I'm impatient! The first time I didn't measure the yeast quite right and it rose so high it stuck to the top. The second time, I measured!
