Breads and Pastries

Home-baked goodness.

Bread is so versatile that it can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Used to make delicious sandwiches or just toasted for an accompaniment to a soup, they are easier to make than you think.

Bread is based on a few simple ingredients – flour, yeast, salt, and water. What you add to them makes them special. And if you use your yeasted dough along with something sweet, you have got an extraordinary treat.
