Making the house smell like love

Granny Beazer always made homemade bread. She would hand grind the wheat and add it to the white flour. She was born in 1897 and died in 1978. She taught me how to make bread and I taught my children and grandchildren. There’s nothing like homemade bread right out of the oven!! It makes the whole house smell like love! Of course Granny had homemade jam to go with it, but that’s another recipe.
