Best Holiday Bread Recipes

Holidays and special occasions mean holiday bread recipes, lovingly prepared. Follow the links below for holiday breads as well as bread recipes for other special occasions.

Think Christmas, Passover, Easter, Thanksgiving, St. Patricks Day, and more.

If you do a lot of bread baking, you already know about the convenience of using a good bread machine or bread baker. Not all bread machines are equal, however. Many of us have experienced the frustration of "out-growing" a bread machine's limited features, or of discovering that our budget model broke down the day the warranty expired.

Bottom line: if you do a lot of baking, you need a good machine. The best I have come across is the Panasonic SD-YD250 Automatic Bread Maker.

There is another gadget that I'd also like to recommend. This is a good choice when you want attractively presented bread and butter.

With this RSVP Butter Slicer, you'll be serving your holiday bread recipes with the nice little butter pats that you normally see only in restaurants.
