It's a Delicious Thursday here at Art @ Home.  Remember when I wrote about Jenny Coglan's Little Beach Street Bakery?  It's a fun chick lit book with recipes, and Colgan swears by her Easiest White Bread recipe.  She states that you really can't go wrong with this recipe, and she's right.

This is the first time I've ever cooked bread with yeast before (although I've cooked almost every combination of quick bread known to man).  The recipe was simple to follow and the results were well-received.  We cut the bread as soon as we could stand to touch it, and spread butter and jam on it. YUM!  It was a great snack to tide us over until supper.

I had enough dough to make two smaller loaves.

Please stop by tomorrow for my review of Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery.  By the way, she so badly wants her readers to bake the Easiest White Bread that she included the recipe in the sequel, too. Each book has about 6 or 7 recipes in the back, and there are a few more I'd like to try, like the Kick Ass Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Icing.  It sounds Southern, doesn't it?  The main character's boyfriend is from the South, so maybe that's why it's in the book.  (I'm not sure as I haven't quite finished it yet).

I've also been baking for the Mad Tea Party.  Please come to my party Saturday!

  1. Ah, homemade bread!! It looks delicious, and I bet it smelled amazing fresh out of the oven. I'll definitely stop by for the Mad Tea Party. :-)

  2. Oh Ricki Jill...I can only imagine how delicious your house smells of home baked bread. See what you've I'm hungry, hee, hee, hee. Happy Thursday my friend.


  3. Yum! The chef has been baking bread again. Dangerous, but how how wonderful it is to have the house full of the aroma. Can't wait to see your Mad Tea!

  4. I love the way fresh bread baking makes the house smell delightful! I think I am definitely going to have to add these books to my wish list. Thanks!

  5. :-)) I just got my books at the library and guess what came. :-))

  6. Bread, butter and jam sounds like heaven! I have that book on my list. Looking forward to it. :)

  7. The bread looks sinful. Last winter I baked a lot of bread and I am still trying to get off the 10 pounds that came to visit. I am beginning to think they have taken up residence for good1

  8. Freshly baked bread with butter is just so yummy, and have to say this bread falls into the yummy court
