Every Friday, I bake challah bread for our Friday night dinner. It never gets old.
Challa is one of those kinds of breads that are amazing with anything.

Bottom line, if you never made challah it's time to give it a try. You'll love it.
When I asked on the Common Sense Homesteading Facebook page if people were interested in bread recipes, I got a resounding, “Yes!” So I've rounded up some of my favorite bread recipes, plus some from my friends, to give you enough options that you should never have to buy bread again. The first section has a number of yeast bread recipes using wheat flour, the second section has bread recipes for special diets including gluten free breads, a kombucha sourdough and a bread recipe that uses soaked or sprouted whole wheat flour. Ditch all the nasty ingredients in store breads, save yourself some money and enjoy some really good bread!
