Updated: Mar 25, 2020
Lord Honey, there ain't nothin' better than the aroma of fresh bread bakin' in the kitchen. When y'all bake my "Easy Loaf Bread" ever'one in the house will come runnin'--maybe even the neigbors from down the street--I can't make no promises. With this warnin'--y'all may have to bake extra loaves and leave 'em out on the porch--so ever'one can practice social distancin'. Lordy, Lordy--warm home-baked bread and a slather of butter- it don't get any better.
