    I think it's great you are making bread! This must be a breadmaker recipe. I've never heard of using dry milk before. Learn something new everyday.

    I just knew when I posted that someone would know a guy who made bread. Glad to be in their company.

    Ingredients are in and the machine does the rest of the work.

    My wife had been wanting a breadmaker for a long time, once I bought her this one, it sat unused for a long time.

    2 summers ago I asked my Mother in law to show me how to use it, and I have been doing it since.

    My mom told me when I was young (and I hope she was kidding)that I better learn how to cook and clean for myself, I was too homely to ever appeal to a woman.....she swears she never said that, but I love reminding her. [​IMG] I just think she was being funny with me at the time and I never took it any other way.

    Hey Steve! I made bread twice this winter so far and am due to do it again! I have a couple recipes someone posted on a thread for me somewhere around here.

    I made a casserole last night. It was great! Farmer's casserole with eggs, ham, shredded potatoes, green onions, and cheese. I can't wait to do it again. Something needs to be done with the 5 dozen eggs in my refrigerator anyway.
