Homemade Bread Part 2

I decided to give the homemade bread thing another go – this time in my city home.  And this time, I followed the recipe a little more closely. Well, I sort of followed the recipe more closely.  Like I did at the cabin, I again added beer to my bread dough. But instead of adding […]
