A Loaf of Bread, a Jug of Wine and Thou

The most important part of Valentine’s Day is not the chocolates, flowers or diamonds; it is being together with the one(s) you love. You don’t even have to make an elaborate meal! I am not a fan of wine, but I LOVE homemade bread. You don’t have to knead the dough if you have a bread maker.

Bread Maker Homemade Bread
