Becoming more domestic...well trying anyway

So I finally did it!!!! After 11 years of being married to a man that loves homemade bread!

I've always wanted to learn to bake bread. I would love to be good enough that I could bake it once a week and not have to buy it from the store. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I don't like to fail. I tried a loaf when we first got married and it was a disaster. So, I finally got up the courage to do it again, fail or not I was gonna try! I love my MIL's bread and used her recipe.

I think I did a pretty good job. My home smelled so yummy! My family actually ate it and liked it! It wasn't as good as my MIL's, not even close, but it wasn't a failure. Hers is delectably delicious, by the way! I didn't get any complaints and it can only get better from here, right?

Looks yummy, and yes, it will get better. Keep working at it and before you know it, you'll have it perfected. Now, if I can just get the courage to try.
