Today, in another installment of "From My Mom's Kitchen", I have a very special guest I'd like to introduce you to.... my mom!!
My mom is an amazing cook! And, one thing I inherited from her is her love for bread....
I enjoy bread and bread baking probably because I grew up around almost everything being "home made". My mom made 6 loaves of bread every week and I remember taking it to elderly friends and neighbors and hearing their heartfelt appreciation to something homemade.
Slicing into a warm loaf, adding butter and jelly, what could be more comforting and tasty. Back then it was all white bread, which I still enjoy, but I really relish the taste and textures of many different breads. Along with bread making I have canned fruits and made spaghetti sauce as well as butchering our own meat and making sausage. I enjoy making cookies and candy, especially fudge (probably 8 different kinds) and have been making caramels from a secret family recipe for 30 years.
You can likely follow these directions to make the carrot bread without a bread maker!
Thanks, Mom, for passing on your love for bread!
