What is your "house" bread?

Just curious what bread everyone uses for their every day bread? For the last 15 years we have been using Rotella's Steakhouse Twist, not just twist but it has to be Steakhouse Twist. Its very moist and chewy and has a flavor that we fell in love with. A few times we have purchased the twist and it was not good, its just too dry. The only difference is how long its cooked. Up until then my parents and then I just bought whatever was on sale, the Steakhouse Twist was a game changer for us. Since my parent's my son and I always do joined meals we go through 3-4 loaves a week.

My grandmother's white bread and her brown bread. We don't buy bread, haven't for eons. I don't eat bread. Mom likes the brown, dad likes the white.

I haven't bought commercially-produced bread products for well over 30 years. All the bread that is in our house is "produced" by my two hands.

I've always loved making bread(s) and had a bit of a challenge when Arthur took over my hands and caused kneading to be more than uncomfortable. Enter my first bread machine in 1999. It has only made bread as per the manual twice. I use it strictly for kneading and the first rise of the bread products I make.

Thankfully, I have two machines because the holidays are a busy time and it's not unusual for both of them to be going (staggered times) at the same time.

A few years ago I made over 100 baguettes for a professor friend as a fundraiser for his students to build their money for a trip to England. There were days when our dining room table was stacked like cord wood with baguettes. Never could have done that strictly by hand.

I haven't been in the bread aisle of the market in years so I don't really know what is offered these days.

Pita and naan are both wheat breads.

We use all kinds. I have some no-knead dough in the fridge all the time, so I can make bread or rolls whenever I want. I also make sandwich bread sometimes, with King Arthur Flour's recipe for English Toasting Bread. When it cools off, I'll start making rye bread for DH's sandwiches for work.

Love Love Love bread! (I any have made mention, we love breads in Hawaii)
I like to make my own but sometimes time is of the essence.
For store bought bread, it's:

King's Bakery Portuguese Sweet Bread aka King's Hawaiian Bread (I like my Great grandmother's recipe better, but)

Trader Joe's Half Baked Idea Ciabatta bread

TJ's Soft Pretzel Sticks

Great Value Rye Bread (it's cheap and friendly)

Sara Lee's 45 Multi grain bread

That's what's in my deep freeze right now.

For homemade breads when the weather is not so brutal:

All sorts of no-knead breads (like GG, I have one in the `fridge at all times during the Fall and Winter ready to go)

I like to use the FP for different recipes of crusty Italian breads, super easy, with a side of Olive Oil and herbs for dipping

and as I said above, my great grandmother's recipe for Portuguese Sweet Bread, YUM! slathered with loads of butter and toasted under the broiler til GBD!! Dunked in coffee or hot chocolate, try it!

Peter Reinharts bread for classic white bread worked well for me, I want to try some others!

I made my own bread for 20+ years. Then about 3 years ago I became diabetic. No more bread for me.
