This is my mother's bread recipe. She made it so often that she never had to look at any recipe - she knew it by "feel". She finally wrote it down and we are so glad she did since she passed away in 1980 at the age of 45. This recipe is pretty much in her own words - it is a guideline for all kinds of yeast bread items. Several variations follow the main recipe. Be sure to read it through before trying them out. She was a beautiful woman and a wonderful mother. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her. Whenever I make yeast bread, I think of her. I love you, Momma!
