Bread is undeniably the ultimate comfort food that is exceptionally economical yet gives the best feeling of satisfaction both in the mouth and belly.
Funny story, not long ago… I decided to do keto. No rice, no sweets, no bread, basically I have to give up every comfort food I love.
Nah! This diet is not for me.
How can I live without my precious bread? I didn’t even last a day!
So what I did is I baked away my diet frustrations and eat a bunch of yummy Honey Wheat Rolls slathered with my favorite butter and strawberry jam. Hey! It’s made with whole wheat flour, so it’s perfectly healthy. Haha!

Guaranteed easy-to-make and fail-proof bread recipes to try at home, that you’re family will surely love!
The addition of yeast to any bread recipe makes the bread extremely soft, airy, and fluffy. Adding yeast is very intimidating to some, but on the contrary, it’s actually pretty easy to work with.
The only thing I don’t like with this type of bread is the hours of waiting for the dough to rise.
White bread is one of the most common types of bread known all over the world. It may be a basic bread yet it makes the best sandwiches with its soft and fluffy texture with the right amount of sweetness. The perfect bread for a quick fix comfort food, like peanut butter and jelly sandwich or French toast. Yum!
