I bake bread almost every day. This recipe for Classic White Bread is on
the back of the Kroger Active Dry Yeast packet. I have used both bread flour and all purpose flour with good results. Use 1/4 cup of the warm water to dissolve the packet of dry yeast with one teaspoon of sugar.

Martha Washington was a knitter. She organized
the ladies to knit socks and caps for the soldiers.
You can read about her knitting in the book No Idle
Hands The Social History Of American Knitting by Anne Macdonald. Interesting facts about patriotic
knitting during wartime are covered in the book.
