Crock Pot Slow Cooker Herb Bread Recipe

If there is one recipe that completely intimidates me, it’s homemade bread.

I’ve tried it. Many times. And they usually fail.

I’ve tried bread makers with little luck as well, and I’m pretty good about following instructions. Not to say that there wasn’t some user some error on my part, of course. 🙂

Saying that, I have FINALLY figured out a system that actually works, and it is SO EASY.
