Our first attempt at baking bread went very well. Marney and Owen loved getting their hands into the dough. We followed a simple and "fool proof" recipe from Mitten Strings for God by Katrina Kenison, a birthday gift from Jen, and it worked! It yielded 7 loaves, great, except I only had 1 loaf pan. So, I borrowed 1 pan from Mom and stayed up late baking two at a time. Good thing the dough is forgiving and doesn't mind being punched down 6 or 7 times!
