I baked my first bread!
It's fairly simple and no complicated ingredients. I baked mine for 30 mins. and it was a lil too brown on the outside for me so adjust your baking time accordingly :)

Thanks to annabelle_blue for the recipe!
Here's the recipe:

3 cups (12 3/4 ounces) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour*
1 cup (8 ounces) milk
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick, 1 ounce) butter or margarine
2 tablespoons (7/8 ounce) sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt2 teaspoons yeast

Mixing: In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir till the dough starts to leave the sides of the bowl. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased surface, oil your hands, and knead it for 6 to 8 minutes, or until it begins to become smooth and supple. (You may also knead this dough in an electric mixer or food processor, or in a bread machine set to the dough or manual cycle). Add a bit of additional milk or flour if needed— the dough should be soft, but not sticky.

Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover, and allow it to rise till puffy though not necessarily doubled in bulk, about 1 hour, depending on the warmth of your kitchen.

Shaping: Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled work surface, and shape it into an 8-inch log. Place the log in the lightly greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan, cover loosely with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the bread to rise for about 60 minutes, until it’s domed about 1 inch above the edge of the pan. A finger pressed into the dough should leave a mark that rebounds slowly.

Baking: Bake the bread in a preheated 350°F oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until it’s light golden brown.Test it for doneness by removing it from the pan and thumping it on the bottom (it should sound hollow), or by measuring its interior temperature with an instant-read thermometer (it should register 190°F at the center of the loaf). Remove the bread from the oven, and cool it on rack before slicing. Store the bread in a plastic bag at room temperature.

it smells delicious!

Jordan Gabriel Marshall. I am totally in-love with this lil boy! I can't stop kissing/holding/touching his lil face. This entire weekend has been so surreal! We're still in the hospital. will be going home tomorrow (monday) I had a panic attack last nite out of nowhere and all i remember was I got some meds and oxygen and then i was out. I guess after being up for over 24 hours and going through labor my body was just exhausted and worn out. This lil man was all worth it though. We love him to bits!

baby time!

scratching at the front door wanting to go out. He's figured that when the dog scratches at the front door, we take her out. So now he does it too. I recently bought him a leash and harness so he can go for a walk with us :)
