Bread machine bread that actually tastes good

I’ve been a little underwhelmed thus far by my new (if you consider something from good-will new) bread machine. The bread smells great but it looks funny and has an odd texture. I’ve come up with one recipe, however, that I love. I won’t post a picture, because that might dissuade you from trying it.
Cornmeal Wheat Bread
1.5 tsp yeast
1 c white flour
1 c whole wheat flour
1 c stone ground corn meal
1 tsp salt
1 c warm water
1/4 c oil
1 egg
2 T molasses (I use blackstrap)
follow the directions on your machine…..I add 2 T of gluten if I’m not using bread flour.

I think the best use of a bread machine is to make dough. It’s a great way to make perfect challah dough, then forget the weird shape of the bread machine. Just use it for dough, then shape the loaves yourself and bake them. Works like a charm…

If I’m just going to make dough, I can use my kitchen aid with the dough hook, which is what I used to do before I bought a bread machine, when I stopped doing it by hand. It’s not really worth lugging R2D2 out of the garage for dough alone.

Teaching the Four Questions to young children
One of the greatest privileges of being a kindergarten teacher in a Jewish day school is having the opportunity to teach children to recite the four questions. Unlike almost anything else I teach them about Jewish ritual, this is "real work." ...

Guess what's Kosher for Passover (this will change your life.)
I'm not exaggerating. The bane of my Passover existence has been pareve baking. I cook a lot more meat during the holiday than I do the rest of the year, which means a lot more pareve desserts. Which has, up until now, usually meant margarine ...

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
I'm not a haggadah junkie. I know many Jews whose shelves are overflowing with numerous versions of the Haggadah - from the traditional Maxwell House to the not-so-traditional Santa Cruz - and whose seders are an amalgam of commentaries, poems, ...
