Home Economics 101

Welcome to the Home Ec Section. Matters of the family sometimes bring joy and other times bring grief. But it is never trivial: Family matters! Feel free to discuss topics such as the sanctity of marriage; the awesome responsibility of raising children; the struggles of communication problems; the grief of losing a loved one; or anything else that relates to the home and family. However, due to the more personal nature of this section, I ask that you would be especially thoughtful of the readers' feelings. My earnest hope and prayer is that the discussions in this section will help families grow in the love of Christ.

But remember, always play by the rules: here

  • Bread Makers

    Talkin about the kind where you put the dough in, turn on the machine, and it kneeds the bread, proofs it, then bakes it, and it makes such a WONDERFUL smell in the house.

    We got one for a wedding present, and actually used it 3 or 4 times. It's been in a cabinet ever since.

    Have you ever had one? Did you use it? DO you use it?

    I've been playing with my mom's for some months using premade dough. Now that I got 25 pounds of bread flour, I'm gonna step up my game.

      Let us know how that goes.

      Our first batch of "regular bread" was fantastic - and made incredible toast.

      Then we started experimenting with "whole wheat" mixes, and ... um.....

      SINCE then, however, we have developed a taste for whole wheat bread, so maybe we should try that again!

        Remember the bread maker we had growing up as kids? And how those U.S. Treasury agents confiscated it and all the bread that we made? And said we were lucky that we were only about 7 or 8 or else we would have been in "big trouble."

        Oh. You don't mean that sort of bread. Still I think it woulda worked better if you hadn't insisted on your using a green crayon for the coloring.

        I'm always still in trouble again

            I have two bread makers. They're called 'hands'.

                          Yeah, realized I had been a way for a while. I see that the forum no longer marks all threads read, makes it easier to read now.

                            Yeah I got one years ago. I used it for a while, but now it sits in the cabinet with my electric grill (like a foreman grill but I think it is Black and Decker)

                            I have been thinking about dragging it out again to try to make pizza dough like supton said.

                            I used to just buy the prepackaged bread mixes when I did use it. I did some loaves using flour and yeast but I never seemed to get it to work just right. It would either fail to rise good or end up with huge bubbles in it.

                              I've been reading that active dry yeast is better than instant yeast for breadmakers.
