I did it! I made bread, edible bread!
So, I started doing a lot of research. I purchased an eBook class that shows how to make bread in the Bosch and the KitchenAid.
I have a KitchenAid mixer, and it is really hard to find any videos that specifically use this.
I only found source, and it was the Homemaking class on CD. You can also download the class for $5. This was pretty helpful. It has step by step pictures, which I really liked.
The recipe I used was from this class.
Another great resource I heard of was through Cindy Rushton. I emailed her, and she gave me some great resources.
I love the free eBook from The Urban Homemaker. When you sign up for the newsletter, you will get the free eBook, Steps to the Best Bread. It is awesome. Really helpful.
I also found a video that made bread in a stand mixer, but not a KitchenAid.
It was very helpful.
I took what I had learned from these three sources, and the other things I had heard, and meshed it all together, and made my own technique.
I used the recipe from the class, but I took some hints from the eBook, and the video.
I did a video comparison of the KitchenAid Classic, and the KitchenAid Professional 600 series, and put these techniques into practice.
Look for that soon and you can see step by step what I did.
I am just so excited to have made good bread. I have been told not to expect results that are very similar to store bought bread, but mine really was similar to store bought bread. Very soft, and oh so yummy!
Coming soon...my KitchenAid comparison video.

Looking back through old posts form this week I came across one that I REALLY needed to read again. It is about child training and...
