Daily Bread . . .

"The best things in life are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. "
~ Robert Louis Stevenson~

Yesterday, I made the most delicious bread.  I have been looking for a good recipe for whole grain bread, one that won't crumble when you cut it.  I found this recipe at Faithfulness Farm.  When I cut it this morning . . . it didn't crumble!

Have a great day!



  1. Ohhhhh! Precious "mousey" picture.

    And yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmy home baked bread pic!!! Oh I think I can smell it! :-)

  2. Nothing like the smell and taste of freshly baked bread. Wish I could share a slice **or two :]** with you lovely lady~!



  3. I know I have been to your blog before...why such a long time in between visit I really don't know! I just linked from your comment on Cheryl's blog at the Farmer's Daughter. I see from your profile it seems we have a lot in common.

    Of course, maybe not that much...I haven't baked bread in years. I still work full time, so for now, that will have to suffice as my excuse! Your bread is beautiful, though, and looks so yummy. I'll be back, so save a slice for me!

  4. Hi Barb,

    Thank you so much, dear friend, for your sweet comments on my post! You were right, it was difficult to write but it was therapeutic. So sorry about your father, I am sure that is part of the reason you get down this time of year. You miss him, but know that he loved you as you loved him. The love that family shares will never die.

    Your loaves of bread look absolutely mouthwatering. I have never had much luck with homemade bread and have just about given up trying! That pic makes me want to try again!

    I see that Deb has found you...she'll be glad she did...and you'll like her, too!


  5. Thanks for posting the link for the recipe. Can almost smell the bread just by looking at it. I gave up on wheat and oat bread because it was always dry and crumbly. Will try this one. Hope all is well in your corner of our state.

  6. Oh my!! That looks delicious!! I need to get the recipe ASAP!! Love you!

  7. What I wouldn't give for a nice slice (or two) of that warm from the oven bread smothered in soft butter and honey and a cold glass of milk! Will checkout the link. Nola

  8. Oh look at that perfect bread. There is nothing like homemade bread xoxox Clarice

  9. This is a beautiful post. Imagery, quote from Robbert Louis Stevenson and your gorgeous bread.

    I am trying to catch up a little tonight and I add blogs I want to comment on to my browser from google. So, since your post was the first one to go on the browser about an hour or so ago, I have been listening to your beautiful music as I "visited" with my friends. Thank you!


Your comments bless my day and make me smile, thank you for stopping by!
