As time passes, the temperature falls and signs of spring fade. Every limb and branch is snow covered. The ground is white, visibility low. Today is a perfect day to be in the kitchen, a perfect day to bake bread. Oatmeal bread is one of my favorites. The heavenly aroma makes me breathe deeply. There is nothing like biting into of a warm piece of freshly baked bread spread with butter. Note the recipe shows you how to make bread in a bread machine, and also gives detailed instructions for making bread by hand.
