Every other Monday (or so) I'll be posting my evaluation of whether you should make or buy something. They'll be Make or Buy Mondays! Enjoy this little teaser about Sandwich Bread. Next week...professional photography.

I don't think I've ever met a bread I didn't just love. Italian, rye, wheat, multigrain, pumpernickel, focaccia, olive oil, sweet breads, quick breads, you name it, I love it. In our area, there are a number of super delicious bakeries whose bread will knock your socks off. The one that's closest to my house even offers half off all their remaining bread for the day from 5:30-6 p.m. HALF OFF, people! I have been known to fill my Sante Fe to the brims with bread and spend the next two hours dividing and storing in freezer bags. I've also been known to slice off tiny bites of their ingenious olive focaccia until (unapologetically) the whole sheetcake-sized thing was in mah belleee. So yeah, I love bread. Good, handmade, delicious bread.

And I buy the cheap quick stuff at the grocery store too, because frankly, I love that stuff too. I'm not gonna lie. I eat my share of peanut butter sandwiches on generic light wheat bread. Like one a day, if by "one" you mean "at least two".

Years ago, I tried the whole bread machine thing and HATED it (sorry, bread machine lovers). Where's the fun in plopping all the ingredients, in a very precise order, into a bucket, pushing a button and walking away? Blah, boring! But within the past year or so, I've found myself becoming really interested in efficiency and frugality and at some point decided that trying again to make my own bread might be a way to save money and be good to my family. I did some searches and found all the recipes to be woefully overcomplicated and time-consuming for a full-time working mama.

Until...

Until I stumbled across this little gem.



Five minutes a day? Surely you jest! But I was soon to find out just how easy (and still intensely gratifying) this method is.

Initially when I saw this book had been released, I bought it as a birthday present for my dear friend Latoya, but I secretly coveted it for myself. I visited the book's website and subscribed to their RSS feed (stalker). Soon I found the authors had actually published one of the book's recipes on their site, so I quickly whipped up my first batch of bread--a yumdiliumptous brioche which I stuffed with spinach, parmesan and garlic. YUM!



It was so ridiculous, I made another loaf, with cinnamon sugar and apples. <eyes roll back in head, hips spread>
