Simple Pleasures

There are so many things that I love doing as I go about my day trying to bless my home and family. By far, one of the most simplest of all those pleasures is baking fresh bread for my family. Joy for me is not attained in the shopping mall, but instead inside my cozy little kitchen. As I happily knead the dough I love to think of my family and how I want to provide them with wholesome, nourishing food. Expensive perfume could never replace the heavenly aroma that comes from my oven as the bread is baking. And the taste? Warm homemade bread and butter is tastier than any meal I could ever get from a five star restaurant. I am so blessed. I don't have to seek joy in other places, it is found right inside the four walls of my home!

I can almost smell them!
They look like my favorite rolls that our school used to serve when I was a kid.
You wouldn't happen to have the recipe to share would you?☺

Thanks for the anniversary wishes :)

I love homemade breads, its my favorite smell and I even love to make it. I learned how to bake loafs of bread when I was 18. I dont do it as often as I like to but I sure love it and so does my family when I do make it.

In Newfoundland, were I was born and raised, whenever we made homemade bread, soon as it was cooled down enough to cut and eat, we would butter a slice and put molasses on it! Isnt that different!
but it tasted so good :)

Yum, yum, yum - mostly any kind of bread is my downfall, especially warm with butter!!!

I couldn't agree with you more - there is just nothin' like being home and in the kitchen.

Oh homemade is always better, It is win/win. Love Clarice-who has strawberry/rhubarb crisp in the oven
