I am happy to report... my first bread baking endeavor was a success!!
I rocked out the Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer (one of the reasons I got married haha) dough hook. That thing was amazing! Did all of the work for me!
I followed the "easy" recipe for White Bread that came in the mixer's cookbook and.... tada!
And... here they are all finished! I got up early Sunday morning and baked while every other living creature in my house (Michael, Princess, Katy and Brokaw) slept. It was glorious! LOVE my morning alone time! :)
Oh, if you want the recipe, here you go.
I must give myself full credit for being a baking machine this weekend! I asked M what kind of cookies he wanted.. he said.. out of nowhere.. Peanut Butter with M&Ms.
You got it.
