    I cannot imagine never eating store bought bread for that long.

    But I absolutely love homemade bread, so I'm certain you survived just fine.

    I wonder if your mother ever entered those contests.

    It sounds so exciting.

    As always, your article is great and makes me want to try it out.
    Maybe one day.

    Happy Mother's day.

    Hi Rosina,  I am so glad you are enjoying my recipes on this site.  I hope you get to try this bread sometime.  Who is the baker in your family?

    Hi Brenda,

    As children, my brothers and I did not realize how spoiled we were with a mother who liked to cook and bake as she did.  Some kids grew up eating TV dinners. Not us!  She did many things well, and my dad did his part barbecuing things on the grill.  My grandmothers also cooked from scratch.

    You were quite fortunate but I can understand that as children you didn't realize.

    I'm glad you learned from her...cooking seems to be a big part of your life.

    Hi FlourishAnyway,

    Learning the history of the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contests, as they are now known, was fun for me also.  I am pleased that you liked reading this.

    Hi Chitrangada,

    I grew up watching my mother cook, and when still a child under her supervision,  I started doing some cooking and baking with her.  When I was a teenager, I occasionally began cooking entire meals for my family.  I treasure those recipes that I have from her.  So glad you enjoyed reading this.  Thanks for your message.

    Hi Dora,  Thanks for writing that this is a "keepsake for the recipe and the history."  I appreciate it.  The history of those contests is interesting!  Millions of dollars have been paid out over the years.

    Hi Brenda,  You are correct in what you said about us, as children, not realizing how lucky we were to have a mother who was so talented in the kitchen.

    Hi Ravi,

    It is fun making some of these same recipes that my mother had made through the years.  She was such a good cook and baker!  Thanks for reading this and leaving a comment.
