Perfect White Bread

I don't know about anyone else, but we go through bread like it's no body's business!! The hub takes 2 sandwiches to work every day, we have 3 kids who love sandwiches for lunch, and I just love bread. I cringe buying bread. The bread we buy is 2.50-2.98 a loaf.

I decided to try out baking our own bread. I tried a couple recipes, didn't like the bread. Then I tried THIS recipe. Holy yummm. I have made it twice this week, just to make sure the first time wasn't just by chance. I think it turned out even better the 2nd time. It is insanely easy. It is the perfect white bread recipe!

what to do
