Do any of you guys eat home baked bread

For all my life I ate proper tasting bread until I came to the US - seriously the breads available in the US are not worth eating.

So we had to resort to making it ourselves. It creates a few problems like the aroma which attracts all noses - or just making yourself stop.

That's the only bread I eat. We just make it at home. You need to find a nice bakery.

My dad used to make his own bread from the wheat he grew in the back yard when I was a kid. It was the best tasting bread Ive ever had.

Bread in the states is just awful, no wonder they have to stuff it with every ingredient known to men kind to make it sort of tasteful.

Clearly you've never had Wonder Bread. Have a nice Wonder Bread American cheese and baloney sandwich washed down with a watered-down Budweiser, and you'll feel empowered to throw up a fat middle finger at overrated European cuisine...

Most megamarts now have some sort of artisan breads or check the usual local suspects like "health food" stores and delis. Baking a home is certainly doable but the cost per loaf can get pretty high depending on the type of product.

Fleischmann's Simply Homemade Bread Mix

Look in your grocery store (Kroger or whatever is local to you), Walmart, Target, or better yet go to:

Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade® Bread Mix

and click on the "Where To Buy" tab and enter your zip code.

I like it.

SWMBO makes a steady supply of French Bread in our Breadman breadmaker (that we got for $4 at Goodwill). It's not a Parisian baguette, but it's really nice and crusty and has only a few natural ingredients. The only thing that makes it somewhat expensive (but still a lot cheaper than "Wonder" type bread) is non-bleached flour.

Wife cranked out ten to twelve loaves a batch until her wrists started bothering her. I suggested she stop rather than face tendonist or worse.

Suggested to her that if you wear you wrists out I would not like to see you crying. Just because you could no longer hug me. Whatever the reason she stopped baking bread. It was always good tasting and very consistant from batch to batch bread. The breads out of the breadmaker do not seem as good. She makes an occassional loaf with them though.Most local retail bread is very poor.

She should look into the overnight hydration (no-knead) recipies. Pretty much all of the bread recipies in Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bakery book is an overnight dough or knead in a stand mixer. Although his bread recipe does call for a pan of river rocks, a length of chain and a Super Soaker to generate steam.

My Grandmother used to always make babka for u s and to date, that is the best bread I've ever had. Touch of butter and its perfection! I typically just get seeded italian bread for my daily sandwiches (which are mostly meat anyways) since the bread is more of a holder than anything else. Generally I agree though, bread here is awful.
