It is no secret that I’m putting pumpkin in everything these days.  I talked about it earlier this week when I made pumpkin coffee cake.  It is also no secret that I love to bake bread!  Just look at all of these recipes. It is really one of my favorite things to do on a lazy Sunday. There is nothing better than the smell of freshly baked bread in your house.  TheBetterHalf is pretty spoiled – I can’t remember the last time we had store bought bread!…

Bacon Bread

The title of this entry says it all for this one:  Bacon.Bread. Delicious, fluffy bread with tons of bacon baked inside.  Does it get any better?  I really don’t think so.  I’m pretty sure TheBetterHalf would be happy if this was the only bread I ever baked going forward.  I mean what is not to love about three quarters of a pound of bacon being added to your bread dough?  And imagine the sandwich possibilities with this loaf.  A turkey sandwich…on bacon bread.  A grilled cheese with tomato…on bacon bread.  A BLT!….on bacon bread.

I love no-knead bread and quick easy bread, but when I have time on a weekend, I really enjoy making good old fashioned bread.  The kind that requires kneading, takes up lots of time, and causes a mess.  But that’s what weekends are for, right?  It had been awhile since I had baked bread, so last weekend I decided to make Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread.  I have made this recipe before, so I knew it would be a winner, and that TheBetterHalf would like it, even though it has whole wheat in there (he is a white bread kind of guy). …
