Homemade Bread Bowls

I was at the store the other day and liked to have had a cow (that's Kentucky slang for throwin a fit) when I saw the cost of a round loaf of bread to use for a bread bowl. Almost $5.00! What???? I was NOT going to pay that price for some bread!

I started searching on my favorite recipe sites and finally found one that was worth trying: Bread Bowl Recipe from All Recipes.

I was kind of nervous because anytime I have fixed bread, it doesn't "poof" like it is supposed to. But this time...well.....look....I was so excited! we filled them with my famous Chicken Chili Recipe and they turned out delicious!

That looks beeautiful! Yum.

When you have made bread before did you proof the yeast? Are you sure that you are kneading it long enough? Maybe you need to either add gluten or use bread flour? Is your warm place too warm or not warm enough? Maybe you need to let it rise longer. Just some ideas that come to mind on what might be the problem at other times.
