Our favourite homemade bread

We made the switch to homemade bread about a year ago. That decision was based partly on not wanting to buy store bread because of all the preservatives and other additives in them (we thought Jacob might have been reacting badly to something in store bought bread) and partly because homemade bread is so yummy! We are very lucky that Chris really enjoys making and cooking bread. He's experimented with lots of different breads so far so thought I'd share some pics of some of our favourites:

Sourdough loaf (this is our standard old favourite!)

Rye bread

Marbled rye bread

Tiger loaf

Foccacia with herb oil

Raspberry and cream cheese braid (a sweet bread!)

65% hydration sourdough pizza (Chris' own recipe)

I'm so lucky to have a husband who is such a wonderful cook (among other things!) I will be posting Chris' instructions for making a sourdough starter to make your own bread in a few days too if anyone is interested.
