This is bread dough rising in my favorite bowl. :)
I love the aroma in my house on days when I bake bread.
In the past I baked bread in a bread machine. It tasted good, but the shape of the loaf wasn't very appealing or useful. I've switched to making bread with a Kitchenaid mixer doing the harder work of kneading the dough. Other than that, the process is much like my great aunt, Elsie, used when I was growing up. She always let me 'help' with her baking. Good memories and good eating.
