My younger brother's been looking for a bread machine at his area's thrift stores, but no luck. I've been looking here and, last week, I scored a brand new Sunbeam one. Never used. The cord was still wrapped in the manner done at the factory. Instruction book and a box of bread mix was there, too. So, I've been putting the machine through its paces to be certain it's okay. Performing like a champ. Paid $7.50 for the machine. The current year's model of this machine retails at $110.00. Yeah!!!!!

Today I made a batch of our family's potato rolls. Perfect. Made two loaves of white toasting bread yesterday. Perfect, too. Tomorrow will be a couple of baguettes.

BTW, I only use the DOUGH setting. This way I can shape my doughs into what I want them to be. That's what my brother wants to do as well.

Great score Katie!
I'm thinking of starting an artisan bread dough today and maybe a Biga, so I can make some Italian rolls.

Nothing today. But I made a lemon cake (thank you Alix) yesterday and SO promptly took two big wedges for her brother and SIL to accompany the Chicken pies she's taking them for dinner. (He's recovering from an illness).

I have some oatmeal-raisin cookie dough about to go in the oven. It's chilling in the fridge right now.
