Homemade Bread // Lacey Cooks

Nothing is better than freshly made homemade bread, right? I’ve been trying some new recipes and I think I’ve discovered the best recipe for us. I enjoy making loaves of bread but I got a proofing basket recently and I’m obsessed with making these round loaves. Plus it works well with adding tons of herbs fresh from the garden.
