They're rising - soon the house will smell SO good!

I have a perfectly good Kitchen Aid mixer and bread machine, but I just love making breads by hand. If you've never kneaded bread dough I highly recommend it - it's a marvelous stress reliever! Cinnamon rolls must be treated somewhat gently, but bread can have the stuffing pounded out of it and it just makes it better.

I also love kneading bread by hand . . except for fresh ground whole wheat dough. It is so sticky and I can barely touch it just to get it in the pans. I let the mixer do all the kneading for the whole wheat bread but otherwise, I do it by hand too.
