I just make bread bc I enjoy doing so and I have a limited food budget. I find that the more I make from scratch the better off I am and my blood sugar levels show it (I'm a diabetic). It's also something that I do well and it makes my family happy. For example, I make sourdough bread from my own homemade sourdough starter. Bc I was so successful, I also made another sourdough starter at my husband's family cottage in Michigan (the water and air change the flavor of the starter). I call it my Carp Lake sourdough bread. My in laws LOVED it! And I enjoy doing these things for people I love.

My boyfriend and I have talked about getting a bread maker later on (along with a mixer as neither of us own one, since we don't bake *anything* - I always tell people I'm a cook, not a baker lol).

I do think it'd be beat to make specialty bread like you're referring to. Something to break up the same-ol-same. Especially rye. Mmm. Warm rye with butter.

Note to self: Buy rye bread.

Actually, I'm making a rye sourdough starter so I can make the rye sourdough bread in The Bread Baker's Apprentice cookbook. It's a comprehensive book about some serious bread baking.

I have a wonderful Montana Sourdough, her name is Audrey II (as in "Feed me Seymour." from Little Shop of Horrors)

My sourdough starters names are Gossimer (after the big red hairy monster in some Loony Tunres cartoons) and Perry bc the region it's named after which is Carp Lake is also called Paradise Lake. The Rye starter I'm working on will probably be called Ryan lol.

because of heart attack and surgery, I now have to eat a low-salt, low fat diet, so I make my own bread to control the fat and salt amounts. It's really easy to do the no-knead bread, letting it rise overnight and baking next morning. Love that rustic bread!

but I do prefer store-bought rye bread for some reason. They get the texture soooooo right.
