  1. What kind of dried milk powder and potato flakes did you use?

    What does SAF stand for? Is it A brand name?

    • YEP, SAF is just a brand of yeast! Noreen fron Noreen’s Kitch and I both love that brand the best. It gives you the best results, in my opinion.
      I use Idahoan Real Premium Mashed Potato Flakes…… they taste the best I think. I buy them in a bulk box from Sam’s Club but grocery stores sell this brand as well.
      Dried Milk Powder, I honestly buy whatever I can find, since this one is a little more scarce to find….. usually Kroger brand. It can be pricey!

  2. Have you tried The Bread Beckers (Sue Becker) recipe for bread, from the Red Cookbook…or from her new one? She grinds all her own wheat and has some wonderful recipes and ideas. I just found your sight today and LOVE it! I’m trying to do as much as I can from scratch as well and can’t wait to try some of your recipes/ideas. Thanks!
