Bread Machine, How I Love Thee

After making the decision to no longer have a weekly order from Door-to-Door Organics, we knew we'd want to be making bread at home. After much research, we decided on the Panasonic SD-RD250 (we got ours at Jet.com, with a few coupon codes and discounts, we paid $143). We used about 1.5 $5-6 loaves a week, so it should pay for itself before too much longer. Bonus, we can avoid any corn or citric acid or dairy allergies without worrying the bakery used cornmeal under its loaves (happens ALL THE TIME and is never included on the ingredients list, but don't get me started)
Anyway, in conjunction with the purchase I started looking into whole grain bread recipes, and found a nice little book on Amazon: The No Fuss Bread Machine Cookbook. Very informative, lots of detailed information about what ingredients work (or don't work) and why. I have a loaf of the 100% Whole Wheat loaf (suitably modified) working away right now. The best part? About 3 hours in the apartment smells A-MA-ZING!
