My bread maker is life

Current kitchen appliance obsession: bread maker.

Oh the things I do with my bread maker. And all of them are delicious and not dirty!

The last time I purchased pizza was months ago thanks to my bread maker. The last time I purchased bagels was also months ago. And the last time I bought bread? You guessed it… Months. Ago.

I use my bread maker 4-5 times per week and often twice per day!

Some secrets to using a bread maker

  1. The bread maker recipe book is your basic friend. Start there but quickly move on to online recipes… They are usually better. Read the reviews for tips!
  2. Think ahead! Make bread while you’re sleeping so you have fresh, delicious bread for breakfast.
  3. Experiment! Add rosemary, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning to basic bread recipes.
  4. Use it often. If you make it. They will eat it.
  5. Make pizza crust! I absolutely love that recipe. I made it last night for a BBQ chicken pizza. Also, pizza is expensive. Even frozen pizza is ~$5! Make it at home for cheap.
  6. Cinnamon rolls. Enough said.
  7. Bread at stores is expensive. Buying a good loaf of bread will run you between $4 and $6 here in the Skagit Valley. That’s absurd. I can make bread for under $1 per loaf.

I didn’t know what I was missing until I got my bread maker. I only like kitchen appliances if I can use them for lots of things… This one is a winner! I’m going to try Ciabatta dough tonight. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Cheers!
