Here is a recipe that is a favorite at our house. I LOVE homemade bread. For as long back as I can remember, if it was Wednesday, my mom was in the kitchen making homemade bread. To this day that is one of my favorite smells and tastes. This recipe is a modification of one I found in an old church cookbook. The original had the oats soaking in water, and a lot of "extra" steps. I love to cook, but don't love to spend all day doing it, and I'll combine as many steps into one as I can. If you are not a fan of wheat flour, you can definitely use all white flour, and it's super yummy that way, too. Also, I have made this by hand, before my KitchenAid mixer days, as well as used a bread maker. Pretty much any way will work, and the end result is so good. This recipe only makes one loaf, so if you want more homemade goodness to enjoy, definitely double the recipe.
