There are few things I love more than homemade bread. I gave my bread machine a break and gave this homemade whole wheat sandwich bread recipe a try from Musings of a Housewife, that happened to be featured in our notebook (circa 01.27.10 ). There are no words to describe this deliciousness. The bread was filled with that whole wheat goodness, but not heavy like some whole wheat breads can be.  Topping it with a little melted butter really added to the decadence of enjoying a midday slice for a snack!  Definitely give this recipe a try- I promise you will be impressed with yourself and your family will be impressed too!

Have you tried anything from our featured notebook entries? We would love to hear what projects you tried and how they worked out for your family!
