"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Personal Notes:
It's hard to know when loaf breads are actually done in the center. I use the (disposable) aluminum pans. Some have told me they bake more evenly in a regular loaf pan, and bake one at a time.
These freeze very well. Don't frost with icing if you plan to freeze. Just wrap it up well in Saran Wrap and double bag.
