Unfortunately, I have not started making my own bread. One day I will achieve to be as great as my sister-in-law Alex. In the mean time, you can still pick up a loaf of artisan bread from most grocery stores or, even better, a local bakery. We always seem to have a loaf of pre-sliced artisan garlic bread on hand in our refrigerator for meals. We will brush the slices with olive oil and lightly grill. A great way to use leftover artisan bread is to make croutons and bread crumbs. Many times I will shop the bakery for their day old selections that are typically discounted by 50%.
