Farm Kitchen Smells

When I think of an old farm kitchen, I think of home made goodness. You know, pies, cakes, cookies, breads, rolls, strawberry jam! The smell of goodies make my mouth water!
I love them all of course, but back in the day all that was done by hand and took time, patience, work. Now don't get me wrong I enjoy doing that from time to time. It is very rewarding to me. However, there are times when I want to have homemade bread for dinner and I've been at work all day and only have 3 hours to do so. That's when I pull this baby out ...
My Bread Machine...Works great!! 
All I have to do is put in all the ingredients (water, flour, salt, yeast, sugar) into the machine and 3 hours later I have this...

And my house smells so yummy!! 

There is nothing better than homemade bread with homemade strawberry jam. Which I happen to have! I could eat it all day long!!

So if you don't have a bread machine you should look into it. I am not sure how much these things cost. This one was given to me, but I have seen them time and time again at the goodwill and garage sales pretty cheap.

So go ahead and make yourself some homemade goodness. The hard way or the easy way. You can't beat it! It doesn't even compare to store bought!

P.S. Please ignore the messy kitchen counter. I was in the middle of making dinner (yummy pasta to go with the bread) which I will be posting the recipe for soon!


  1. I love homemade bread too! The smell is so comforting! I sure don't like to take the time to make it myself, so I use my bread machine too. Here's a link to how I make cinnamon swirl raisin bread using my bread machine:

    Happy Sunday!

  2. Speaking of jam, I returned your jars today, empty. Key word here is EMPTY, as in needing refills!!! ;)
    Thanks Sis!
