    Question Bread Machine a Relic of a Life Past?

    Primal Fuel
    My TW and I were cleaning our basement this afternoon and we came across our bread machine. It wasn't hidden or anything, just down in the basement where we normally store it.

    My wife is distraught about giving it up so I told her I would ask.

    Has anyone had any success with a paleo/primal recipe in their bread machine?

    I made some flax bread for hubby the other day. I had a bite & think it tastes okay, but he hates it. *Sigh* I wish I knew how to make him leave his mistress, Sara Lee

    I don't have any recipes but I can say I was about to buy a bread machine 3 months ago when I was 15lbs heavier.

    A bread machine is a rather miserable a good tool for making mediocre bread. Buy her a kitchen-aid mixer or a cuisinart - both result in much better bread if you want to make some as a splurge and are useful daily for primal cooking.

    (I know a lot of people disagree with me on the bread machine. They just aren't bakers.)

    I have a recipe for the bread maker. I'd fill it with a mixture to taste of gravel, concrete mix, and water. Make sure you have enough to completely fill the bread machine all the way. Then I'd turn it on and run for a while to help dry the mix faster. When it's done I'd tie a rope to it and use it as boat anchor. An ex gf of mine had a deep fryer that and it smelled horrible. I wanted to use my recipe on the deep fryer as well (see, it's versatile).

    Unfortunately, I bought it for her about 11 years ago. She enjoyed using it. But now that we're primal she can't use it.

    .... and that's why it was in the basement. I know a lot of people enjoyed using them. If you have the space in the basement, let her hold onto it until she's ready to let it go (her gift equals her call).

    Who knows, maybe someone will come up with a use or hack for them in the meantime. It could happen.

    I bought a bread machine a couple of years ago. And up until March, I was coveting a Kitchenaid mixer.

    I'm much happier with my crockpot and immersion blender

    My toaster's getting lonely too, and my pizza stone. Oh, well!

    Pizza stones make great paint palettes. I used a lazy susan while painting projects so I wouldn't have to touch the wet paint on the piece.
