This breadmaker belonged to my mom. It holds many memories from when I used to live at home. I remember my mom and I in the kitchen in the afternoon- I always prepared the bread myself. I picked it up from my Dad's house this weekend. It's been about 4 years, but I'm eager to try it again. There's nothing like home made bread! I'm going to try it tonight when my in laws come over. I'm making Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. This bread should be fabulous as a side! Wish me luck!
