Best Bread Machine Bread

There are times I use my bread machine, and times I just use the oven, depending on my day. This is a GREAT bread machine recipe. I've just changed a few things.

First thing is to know your bread machine manufacturers recommended way to place ingredients into the pan. Mine is wet, dry, then yeast in a little indent on top of the dry.

Best Bread Machine Bread
1 cuip warm water
2 TBSP white siugar
1 (.25 ounce) yeast
1/4 cup veggie oil
3 cups flour
1.5 tsp salt

Select basic or white bread setting and press start.

So after I place all the ingredients into the bread machine pan. Then, here is the trick, instead of pressing the pan in until it clicks into the base I just set it into the hole. Then I turn it onto basic setting. About 30 minutes later the machine will beep signaling it is going into "rise" mode. I then unplug the machine, plug it back in and click the pan down into the base and start it back on "basic" mode. and let it cook!

By not clicking it down into the base it makes this recipe double in size, it makes it so much better.. trust me, try it!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

How to Make Buttermilk From Regular Milk

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.

How many times have you started making something only to realize that little container of buttermilk you bought 6 months ago is expired. Has it really been in there that long?

Here is a quick way to make buttermilk out of regular milk.


-Milk (just under 1 cup)
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

Put the vinegar (or lemon juice) in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup. Then fill it up to the 1 cup line with milk.

Let it stand about 5 minutes. Then you have Buttermilk! It gets kinda chunky, this is normal. Now you can use it in any recipe just as you would buttermilk.
