Everyone always asks for my bread recipe so here it is. Warning~ its addictive. About 4 years ago I threw out all white stuff in my house (sugar, white flour, white rice , ect) and replaced with whole grains and honey. So on Mondays I would make a batch of bread and my boys would deliver a loaf to the neighbors on both sides of us. They now have nicknames ~The Bread Boys.  They used to not like taking the bread to the neighbors but now they fight over it.

 When I was growing up the lady next door would have us pick blueberries and put them in a brown paper bag. It would take us forever because we would eat most of them. Later she would bring us a pie. I loved that feeling that someone would make us something that took all day , just for a neighbor. I hope you make this recipe and GIVE a way a loaf…it just might make someones day!
