My absolute favorite bread recipe is the basic sourdough boule from the Tartine Bread cookbook. Having said that, everything I've tried from this book has been awesome. Highly recommend.

Why kind of bread do you wish to make? I have several Pullman style loaves posted here that are excellent, if I may say so. (The people who commented agree.) Here's one I make 20 - 30 times per year, and have for decades -- Buttermilk Oatmeal Bread: http://food52.com/recipes...

Here is another foolproof sandwich loaf. Lately I've been using potato flour instead of potato flakes, as I've had trouble sourcing the latter in bulk. It's called Everyday Potato Bread. I don't make it every day, though when I was preparing sandwiches for my sons' lunches, I made this at least several times per week: http://food52.com/recipes...

And this one Amanda Hesser selected for publication in the New York Times dining section online a few years ago. It's a multigrain cereal bread: http://food52.com/recipes...

If you're interested in making an artisanal bread using a wild yeast levain, I highly recommend the method and recipes in William Alexander's (underappreciated but wonderful) "52 Loaves" (a fun read, too). ;o)

Had the best results with Four Hour Baguette from Saveur May 2012 issue. Perfect every time!

Not sure what type of bread you are seeking. If you want a quick but delicious sandwich bread, try David Leite's Buttermilk Sandwich Loaf, http://leitesculinaria...
Takes about 1.5 hours from start to finish. The actual hands on time is 15 minutes. The final product is a buttery soft bread with a subtle tang. It makes a dang good sandwich and toast.

Gorgeous! I'm making this the next time I bake bread (which will be tomorrow). I cannot wait. Cynthia, we are so fortunate to have you here. Your generous spirit, along with your extraordinary talent and clear, simple style of recipe writing, are much appreciated. And Bevi, thank you for the inspiration (and for taking the time to post your photo). ;o)

AJ, you are extremely kind; that is high praise coming from another accomplished baker. I hope you enjoy the ciabatta.

I'm inspired to jump in on this subject = Bread & Cynthia & AJ, too! I agree 100% with what both Bevi & AJ have to say about Cynthia a favorite recipe for me is the Harvest Bread, see photo below and Cynthia's 2nd link. But I need to add a comment re: AJ's EPI Rolls, I had so much fun making them, a few times over, sadly no photo, but here is the link http://food52.com/recipes...-

Beautiful, QS; thanks for sharing the story of a bread from your childhood and posting the recipe onsite! I love your grandmother's secret marking with the basil, great memories!

What type of bread recipes are you looking for? Here's one I make at least once a month for years and years now. I even expanded the recipe so it now makes 4 loaves: Hearty Oatmeal Bread http://food52.com/recipes...
