Basil and Wheat Bread Twists

Gene often jokes with our son that he married me for my bread baking!  He absolutely adores homemade bread, and he’s sure to be whistling a happy tune when he sees me putting some sort of yeast bread together for dinner.  This whole bread baking thing has sort of a symbiotic feel with us, as I love making it just as much.  Truth be told, it puts me in a good mood.  Baking bread is rewarding, satisfying, & gives me a sense of accomplishment.  I just love the whole nurturing process, it brings out the creative “Mom” in me!

“Welcome to Tuesday!”

…or whatever the current day was at the time.   That’s what our son, Nick use to say when he was little.

A quick note to say hello…

Hi Everyone!  Since this is my first post, I’ll keep it brief.  My name is Jeanne, and I’m a full time, work from home wife and mom (to my husband Gene & teenage son Nick), with an Etsy shop www.designsbyjeanner.etsy.com as a side business. I’m the creative type by nature, I love to sew, quilt, cook, craft, garden & draw…probably in that order.  Over the next few months, I’d like to post video tutorials, share ideas, and chat with upbeat people who have similar interests.   Let’s get this party started with a video tutorial I’ve posted this morning!

Thanks for stopping by, let me know what you think of the tutorial, & please keep in touch! ~Jeanne
