There's something essential about bread-especially, warm, spread with butter-that most of us are powerless to resist (carb cutters, how do you do it?). The variety of bread recipes is endless: dark, nutty rye, tangy sourdough, pillowy dinner rolls, crusty baguettes - you could sample a different type of bread every day for a month and still not make a dent in the options. Don't let a bread machine do all the work. There's something comforting about baking artisan homemade bread - the smell of yeast in the air, and the act of kneading dough to the smoothness of a baby's bottom feels like exactly what it is: a ritual that's been done for thousands of years.See Popular Bread Recipes

iStockToday, the range of breads at stores can be daunting. Not only has there been a resurgence of interest in traditional bread-baking methods (giving us everything from French baguettes and Italian focaccia to Swedish rye and German pumpernickel), but more stores are reintroducing in-store bakeries and baking fresh bread on-site, and manufacturers are developing breads to appeal to special diets.
