My wife's grandmother did that. My neighbour too. All long since gone. A lost art methinks.

When we were newly married, my wife bought a bread maker (cheating a little, I know) and having fresh bread was fantastic. So fantastic I put on 10 lbs in the first month. Still, nothing better than homemade bread warm from the oven smothered in butter!

My wife was born and raised in South Africa and came to the states at 18 yrs old. Over there they don't have prepared foods like here, they have ingredients. Baking bread and that type of thing is very common. She is one hell of a personal chef.

Oddly enough my wife reminds me very much of my Grandmother who was born and raised in Scotland (110 years earlier), she has many of the same qualities. Both of them also being country girls raised on farming lands.

I agree and won't say how much weight I gained since living with my wife. But I've lost most of it now, thank God.

The best was Christmas Eve, she made bagels for the first time. Nobody any where near close to use has fresh bagels and NY-NJ style bagels are just a fantasy here. So she got a recipe from a Jewish friend and surprised me with them. They were outstanding.





These will be a main stay in our home from now on.

It contains some calories but it is very low in sodium and preservatives.

She has always made low sugar items since I've turned diabetic but now goes low sodium as well since the heart attack.

I had to hide my wife's machine. I couldn't fasten my pants.

@MechanicalDVR You are a lucky man! My spouse does not know how to do any of this type thing. She is a classic reheater and microwave princess. We eat out for an ethnic foods.

My wifes personal trainer would substantiate that thought. He promotes raw and organic foods. Dropping sugar from our diets has made noticable positive changes.

Thanks bro! I'm well aware. I learned from the first marriages to go for an import. They have skills all around the house.
