Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
You have to kind of picture my Grandma making this. There's a rhythm to the kneading/rise process and there's an instinct for how much flour, milk, etc to use for the right consistency. I don't think my Grandma Wells ever tasted store bought bread. If you can capture this recipe you will keep an art alive.
