How to Knead


Kneading is a great workout for the hands and kids LOVE to help with this part of bread making, as well as the rolling. (as you can tell from my daughter’s hands in the photos) To begin, form a mound and flip the top half over.

Using the heel of your hand, push the dough back to the top.

After each push, turn it 1/4 turn and repeat the process.

One important aspect of kneading is to not crack the skin. If you look on the back side of your dough, it should be smooth. If you have cracks forming your dough is being pushed too hard.

I have been married for 20 years and have 3 children. My oldest is 20 and currently in the National Guard. My daughters are 15 and 11 and involved in everything. I believe life is difficult enough, that we can find ways to make the everyday just a little easier and perhaps even more simple. I love to cook, shop and make things with the kids.
