Miss LorrieAnn's Breakfast Blessing! #2


Hello and Welcome to another addition of my Breakfast Blessings. I am thrilled to have you come back to visit and hope you will enjoy this week's menu.

Today I want share a tradition that is very near and dear to my Heart and I have been Blessed to pass it on to my daughters AND sons as well...

Baking Bread!!
*smiles*

Now baking bread in my house has NOT been a big deal for a long time, as I have been doing it for what the kids think is forever. For the longest time, they were convinced ALL Momma's baked their own from scratch!! But, the thing they have come to love most about their Momma baking bread is along with fresh hot bread out of the oven comes

Cinnamon Rolls!!

Where did my love of baking bread come from ??
My Grandma passed it on to my Mom and then to me!! *smiles*

My Grandmother (my mom's mom), and I were very close. As a child I spent most of my weekends and all of my summers at her house. Now, you must remember I come from an extremely small town out in the middle of Cow Country. There was not a whole lot of other stuff to do in the middle of nowhere! *grin* I guess that is why I became such an avid baker and cook. I was Blessed to have both Grandma and Mom to teach me the kitchen basics as well as the extra's...and they both loved to bake!!

I lost my Grandmother when I was just 18 and dearly miss her, but she has left me with such a legacy of scrumptious treats to share and one of them is her home made bread recipe!

Have a wonderful day, Believe and & Be Blessed!!

Love,
Miss LorrieAnn \0/
