Who doesn't love a warm slice of bread fresh from the oven? Well, good news! Homemade bread is not only totally delicious, but also way easier to make than you might think.

Baking just happens to be the perfect skill to master while social distancing, so you don't have to miss out on all that carb-y goodness you usually pick up from your local bakery or supermarket. Check out some of our favorite breads below and get going!

Fraudulently Easy Sourdough

Lady and Pups

Use a sharp and tangy yogurt for that “sourdough” effect we all love so much. If your store-bought yogurt isn't tangy enough, let it sit in your fridge for a few days to make it tarter and thicker.
