1st year anniversary + one day!

UPDATE ! OK so my husband didn’t want to read my whole blog post and told me to put the rules for winning the prize at the beginning. So here I am.

If you want to win my giveaway (which is a surprise), please post a comment about your favorite bread and a winner will be randomly selected! Deadline is June 24th at noon ET.

Well it’s been a year since I put up this blog and a day. I still can’t believe it! Hmm not sure what to do on a first anniversary post. Sort of exciting though I did miss it by a day… He’s not very excited.

I got myself this cool antique bread mixer, let’s say for the 1st anniversary post. (Technically I got it a couple of weeks ago but this makes it more justified.) It’s called the Number 4 Universal Bread Maker by Landers, Frary & Clark of New Britain, Connecticut. You can almost see it..

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

It has writing on the top, looks like ingredients and instructions.. I have to clean mine sometime. It has a hand crank to mix dough, a clamp so you can mix on the table without moving the whole pail, and then you can remove the crank and let the dough rise inside.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I couldn’t pass it up. It’s designed to make the home maker’s  lives more convenient and won a gold medal in 1904 at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. There’s even people who still use it. I’ll try it out.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

So I was spent a little on myself. How about I spend a little on you! I’m feeling generous. I’ll give away a surprise gift, something to do with bread. Could be a pan, could be some jam, could be a book.. I guess you’ll just have to wait and see!

To win this magnificent prize, just post a comment about your favorite bread! Then I’ll randomly select the winning comment. Don’t forget to leave your email address so I can contact you! UPDATE – you can pick any bread you like, doesn’t have to be mine!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The deadline is noon ET, June 24th. A little long, but trying to give a chance to every person commenting.

Thanks for reading!

    I have the recipe for making four loaves of bread in your Universal Bread bucket. Contact me and I’ll give it to you. You have a PRIZE. I’d love to have one and am presently trying to find one, WITH the table clamp to help hold it steady while you turn the heavy dough. I live in Louisiana. Two of my sisters are also looking for one. We’re country girls and love grinding our own wheat, oats, bran, etc. and making bread. We are in the learning process, but so far none of us has died from the bread we made. HA! One recipe, however, SHOULD have been called “teething biscuits”. The dog ran when we threw one at him for a treat. 🙁 Linda

      Hi Linda, you can email me at dar@c4.net if you like. I haven’t used the bread bucket yet and have barely been making bread with my new little one running around, but in the near future I hope! Let me know if you need any help with your bread/recipes!
