We decided to make one half of the recipe since it makes four loaves (who needs four bricks?). We also decided to make one loaf and one pan of dinner rolls. I became hopeful as the dough came together and rose beautifully; it smelled delicious while it was baking, and it looked perfect when it came out of the oven. :)
But I didn't want to get my hopes up too high - the test would be in the tasting. We smothered a roll in butter and shared it between ourselves and Danny - the unanimous response was a long "mmmmmmm."
And Anna said, "It's a keeper, Mom!"
