It's bread, Jim but not as we know it.

Advantages: No scary chemicals in and it tastes like angels tripping over your tongue
Disadvantages: No real instructions, has to be made by the seat of the pants, it takes ages and you, your kitchen and everything else will be covered in flour and congealed dough.

I am one of those pathetic people who is allergic to lots of things... not really allergic enough to get up tight about but allergic nonetheless. High on the list of loved but banned foods is bread, or at least until recently. For year's I've been able ...

Advantages: no yeast, tasty versatile, inexpensive.
Disadvantages: it doesn't last long.

Can bread without yeast really be this tasty ? The answer of course is yes.! Quick to make, cheap to put together, and gone......... faster than the 45 minutes it takes to bake ! Many years ago , (when cooking was as alien to me as walking the Queen's ...

Bread Recipes

Advantages: Easy and Yummy!
Disadvantages: Time

...I don't think there is anything more irresistible than the smell of bread cooking in the oven. The smell seems to linger round the house making everyone hungry. Here are some bread recipes that I class as my comfort food; I love the taste of warm fresh c ...
