We usually buy store bread.  My favorite is 12 Grain.

Fresh bread is a treat at our house.

I buy both fresh bakery and store bought....I just like to keep both in the house, but usually some of it gets wasted and thrown out. I think I need to stop grocery shopping when I'm hungry....lol....you fill the carriage with unnecesssary items.

I would rather buy whole wheat bread from the store which is healthier then white bread! I don't have any interest in making home made bread! Maybe home made biscuits though!

I don't know how to make homemade bread but I have eaten it and its the best.  It smells so good and melts in your mouth.  I wish I new how to make it cuz I would really give it a try.

Fresh bread is the best! Just the smell of it baking is amazing. Store bought breads do last longer though...

I've tried a bunch of recipes from the internet. I use bread flour, fleishmans yeast, and have tried a couple teaspoons of high gluten. I usually have my bread machine mix the dough, then I'll take it out after its risen and form it into baguette's and bake it in the oven. However, its texture is no where near as chewy as the store bought ones.....and the texture is denser, more cakelike in consistency. Making delicious bread, as good as any artisan bakery in the world is what most of us are trying to do. but I have never managed to make good bread so I buy store bread all the time.

While I do enjoy a fresh loaf of bread the problem with it is after about three days it gets hard.  I like soft bread which is why I generally buy store bought bread because it can last until the experation date. 

Your fresh bread last long enough to get hard?
2 solutions.

1.) make smaller loafs, store the unbaked dough in the fridge for up to 7 days. The longer it is stored without freeing, the denser the loaf and more "sourdough" it will taste.

2.) after your regular loaf cools, cut it in half, wrap well and freeze in a ziploc bag. Thaw and use when the other part has been eaten.

Third option.... if your bread does go hard.....make croutons out of it!

I like fresh bread but I can tolerate store bought.  The problem is that it gets moldy quickly.

i have a starter that's been growing for 7 years and I make my own bread each week my family
loves it so I make 10loaves I also make bagels pretzels and flat breads.  It's still cheaper and
refrigeration keeps the bread a few days longer or freeze it to use it in a week.
