Mom's Yeast Bread
150 mins (prep 120, cooking 30)

This is the recipe my mom used over and over when I was growing up. I learned how to make yeast bread using this recipe when I was eight years old (no, I had no idea that yeast bread was supposed to be "hard", I just made it!). You can sub in some whole wheat to make it healthier, but I wouldn't use all whole wheat, you'll have hocky pucks instead of bread. My mom didn't use the wheat germ or vital wheat gluten, but I add it for the extra nutrition. You can leave them out if you wish. This recipe will make 2 loaves of bread or 2 dozen rolls. I usually make rolls and bake in 2 8-inch pans. We eat one pan (12 rolls) fresh, and freeze the other pan. Don't be afraid of the preparation time, it includes the rising time, which is time you can be doing other things.
