Bargain Breadmaker

My best bargain of the weekend garage sale roundup included this Breadman breadmaker for $5.00. I've been wanting to try my hand at breadmaking for some time, and now, for about the price of one loaf of bread - I'm on my way. There is a small manual included, but not much real breadmaking info. If any of you have breadmaking ideas or tips, I'd appreciate your input!

A few other scores include these two 4-5t sized coats for Charlotte at .50 cents each.
Lastly, I picked up this mega carton of Play-doh, 50 different colors in all, for $1.00. C's been rolling, cutting and squishing ever since! Hopefully, with my breadmaker, soon I will be too :)

It's been forever since I've used a bread maker, but ask me any question about play-doh! :)

I would have thought you made your own play dough. No?

I think that's the same bread machine we got when we were first married (with gift money we received). Back then, 1995, it cost $200. Google for some bread machine recipes or check allrecipes.com. If I remember correctly, add the liquid first, and the dry ingredients on top of it, with the yeast at the very tippy top. I haven't used it in years. I prefer making it with my KitchenAid now.

Oh, this reminds me I think it's just about time to introduce Clover to the joys of play dough! What a wonderful haul :)

Great deals! I hope when my bread machine wears out I can find one that cheap. I use mine two or three days a week now. I make all of our bread & can barely keep up with my family.

My favorite tip is to bake your bread in your oven. My bread never fails when I do this but I sometimes have flops in the machine. I use the dough setting on the machine, then put the dough in a bread pan to rise one more time before baking. The best smell ever! Jen

Hi Diane! I have the same breadmaker! I love to make homemade bread! I have a tasty recipe from a breadmaking book written by my mother-in-law, I will have to email it to you. I was just thinking of you the other day and got excited for your new little one! How many weeks are you now? Love, Amy
