I highly recommend Ken Forkish's book "Flour, Water, Salt, Yeast". Just noticed the Kindle version is only five bucks right now on Amazon. No sandwich breads in his book, but this loaf was made with this recipe: Simply Sandwich Bread (Recipe + Video) | Sally's Baking AddictionThat looks really really good. A friend recently shared a buttermilk bread recipe that I tried, was simple for an amateur, and it tasted great.
I'm not m of a baker but I think I need to start a loaf today. It also turns into a great cinnamon raisin walnut bread that makes awesome french toast
yumm, , our last home bread was trying my mom’s Christmas stolen.
Sandwich bread:care to post the recipies?
Jim, there is a commercial bakery across from my office. They have a small retail counter. Pretty good bread and cheaper than the grocery store. Although it seems you are having fun making it.Sandwich bread:

I've seen the signs - "Firehouse Bakery", or something like that? I've been tempted to drop in.Jim, there is a commercial bakery across from my office. They have a small retail counter. Pretty good bread and cheaper than the grocery store. Although it seems you are having fun making it.
Same here, though I'm starting to see some all purpose flour and whole wheat flour. My brother has decided during his stay at home (I think he's going on 6 weeks now) to try to perfect pizza making. He's invested in many different Italian tomato products and high gluten flours, which are usually great for making bread (I think the King Arthur Bread flour that I can't find now has a 12.6% gluten content, so not quite high gluten but pretty good). He has an order of three different high gluten flour products coming from this site he found. He hopes to find a favorite from the 5 lbs he ordered of each, then order a 25 lb sack. I'm hoping he doesn't like one of them as well as the others and gives me the remainder he didn't use.I just returned from the store and it was the same story here. Interestingly, very little cake mix too.
