Audrey loves the bread machine. It has more to do with the moving parts and sound than with the finished product. Don't get me wrong, she loves fresh bread. We all like to gather in the kitchen when the bread is done and enjoy it warm with butter and jam. If we plan right we can have homemade butter and freezer jam to make the treat complete. Even with store butter and jam it really is a treat. If you do not have a bread machine you should try to find a recipe for food processor bread. It is much easier than conventional methods and homemade bread is worth it. Just ask Audrey.
