I'm pretty addicted to shopping at thrift stores. Don't you see a lot of bread machines when you look around the housewares section? They're not cheap. Not if you buy them in department stores. But, consistently they are about $10. in thrift shops. I had to try em out. Especially after a trip to Two Tarts Bakery in Texas...but that's another story.
I picked this one up at the local thrift shop in Gainesville, FL - The Haven Hospice Thrift Store, arguably the best thrift store I've ever been to.
Here's what I found. It's incredibly easy to make bread with a bread machine! I Googled "Bread Machine Recipes" and found the best one at http://allrecipes.com/recipe/best-bread-machine-bread/
Here's the scoop:
Cinnamon Raisin bread, with organic stone ground, whole wheat & olive oil from Ward's (http://www.wardsgainesville.com/)
Strong recommendation - get yourself a bread machine and go for it!
