Bread is heaven

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Photography|Recipes and Food


(I’ve been busy today!)

ETA: This is the best recipe for multigrain bread I have found so far. It makes a lovely brown loaf (as you can see!)

There’s no need for a bread machine, this recipe is dead easy, and I don’t even consider myself a baker. I got the recipe from Canadian Living. They haven’t posted it yet, but I will link to it once they do…

I just wish there was such a thing as low-carb bread (oh, and calorie-free butter!) :)

Yum! I have some homemade strawberry jam that would be perfect with it!

Suddenly I’m feeling a tad hungry…

I can see the picture but I want with all my heart to smell that bread. It looks fantastic- The kind you break with your bare hands and spread just a hint of soft sweet butter on. Well done!

BTW the recipe is from this month’s Canadian Living magazine, and it tasted just as good as it looks!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
