In addition to growing as much of my food as I can, I am making everything I can from scratch. I started making bread as a teenager, so it's not that I can't bake bread, I just find that between the garden and the store, my time is a bit stretched, so the decision to get a bread maker was easy. It took almost a year to finally make a decision on make and model.
Here is a link to the best price I found on my Breville Bread Maker. And the shipping was free!!!
