I'm always short on money around this time of year so I usually end up making gifts for family. This year I want to give baskets of assorted canned jellies/jams and homemade bread. But, I've never made bread. So does any one have any easy recipes? I don't have a bread machine and only have basic kitchen utensils and dishes. Also, how long will fresh bread last? Like, should I bake it the day before? Or can I do it a couple days before? Thanks!!
