3 Easy Homemade Bread Recipes

Updated on September 3, 2014
Source

I used to love to come home from school, and smell the lingering scent of these amazing breads as I walked through the door. "Mom did it again. Yes!" For Mom, it was always a trio. She could never make one without the other two, and how dare you mess up that tradition. I am not exactly sure where these recipes came from origianally, but I do know that they were passed down from God only knows how many generations. But just remember, if you make one, you have to make all three! Mother knows best.

      Chocolate chips are good, too. Thank you Just Ask Susan. I also like to add raisins in sometimes as well.
