Just got a breadmaker

I was scouring Ebay for a few last minute deals and came across a bread machine for a decent price.  According to the seller, these are QVC Open box/return/refurbished units and they sell them at a discount price.

In fact, this is the one I purchased:  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...923153&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_1064wt_906

They had a buy it now price, but I made a counter offer and got it for a total of $40 shipped.  

Just now threw my first batch of ingredients in there to try it out and it's smelling good already.  Nothing fancy, just a 1.5lb loaf of white bread.  But it sure is stinking up the kitchen in a good way!

I'll post a pic of the finished product (good or bad) later today.

If it works out, I have a feeling the wife will be kicking me and the breadmaker out the door.  LOL

Just took the loaf out of the breadmaker.  Man it looks and smells good. Letting it cool off before slicing to have with dinner tonight.  I have some pics snapped of the uncut loaf and will snap a pic of the sliced loaf to post after dinner.

Yeah, I think the wife is going to make me leave.  She's trying to limit her carb intake and here I am baking bread.  LOL

That's great Bill !

That reminds me to make some soon.

Try the cinnamon raisin bread recipe---AWESOME -- Especially while still warm!!!

Then the next day, slice a couple slices & toast them---little butter----HEAVEN !!!!

That looks just like the one I have, but mine is a Breadman. I'll use it sometimes to mix and rise the dough then I'll take it out and shape it and bake in the oven. They are handy little gadgets. You gotta great price too!

Well here's the pics.  The white bread is a winner.  Simple recipe, simple ingredients, the kids are already fighting over the heels, because they're crunchier.  LOL





Yeah, it's a paper plate.  sue me, I'm cheap.  LOL  Great tasting bread, this was a 1.5lb recipe, I may up it to 2lb next time.  And the kids are already on my back to do the chocolate chip bread recipe.  I'll be a baking fool here before long.

That's some good lookin' bread, next time you might take Bear's advice and munch it hot with real butter, oh man, just don't tell you wife when it's done.

We use ours for everything, you might want to google "bread machine recipes," it will blow your mind what they do with them, ...like making pizza dough, can't beat homemade pizza dough! 

I also found another use for my Thermapen, checking water temp.

Have fun and enjoy,

Gene

Great looking first loaf !!!

That stuff is awesome!

Gotta warn ya though---That stuff will put weight on ya a lot quicker than any of the meat we smoke.

You got an advantage---You got kids to help eat it.
