I will be the first to tell you I am no expert on bread making. Over the years I have gotten "my hand" at bread making. Which means I can now make it and it is good for sandwich bread. Before it was good for toast, now I can use it whenever I need in. In fact my youngest son prefers my bread to store bought(smile). Some resources that helped me over the way are my sister, the "more with less cookbook", and www.thefamilyhomestead.com. I have read many articles as well, but I can't remember them. I will be able to impart to those of you interested, what I have learned so that maybe your first loaf of bread will also be good for sandwiches and not just toast(although the toast was awesome). Here is my recipe for "wheat bread".
Wheat bread(1/2 white 1/2 wheat flour)
2 cups slightly warm water(about 105 degrees)
1 TBS yeast
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup olive oil(or oil of your choice)
2 tsp salt
5-6 cups of flour(1/2 and 1/2 or whatever you want)
