I love baking bread, especially on a cold and rainy day like today. I made two loaves of my favorite whole wheat bread and I wish you could smell the kitchen right now. There's nothing like a fresh slice of bread with a bit of butter, or as I prefer, toasted with my favorite jam. I must confess, I was first drawn to Bonnie's Jams because of the label design. Isn't it great? I especially love their Black & Blue jam (blackberries & blueberries mixed). The raspberry is equally delicious though. My favorite bread recipes come from a book I've owned for many years, The Book of Bread by Judith Jones. The hardcover is out of print now, but used copies are available. If you enjoy all kinds of homemade bread, even if you're just a beginner baker, I would highly recommend adding a copy to your cookbook collection.
