The Best Social NetWork For Moms - A Place Where Moms Are Dedicated To Shopping From Other Moms!



Wouldn't You like to know, if there was a really cool place, A designated area, where moms, could meet up with other moms, who were dedicated to shopping from each other online!!!

Wouldn't this be a really cool place for moms to visit???
Moms Would meet up socialize, share Recipes, home making tips, share Home Business ideas, and most of all shop from each other!!! Keeping moms empowered to better care for their families!

If you have been searching online for a great mom Social Network Site, you have probably come across several websites, message boards and forums. These message boards and forums will allow you to meet and network with WAHMs (Work At Home Moms) across the world.

Networking online with other moms on message boards is very easy! Find a forum that you like, register an account and post an introduction message right away. Let the other moms know where you are from and what you want to accomplish with working at home. The women you meet there will provide you with advice on how to start a business, information on a wide variety of subjects, employment opportunities, and they will be more than happy to lend an ear when you need to complain about a bad day.

Start reading other people’s posts – you will notice that there is a section where the poster can list their business website. Visit the different websites – eventually you will find a few work at home moms that have businesses similar to the type you would like to start. Send them a message and let them know you admire their business and ask for advice on how you can get started in the same type of field.

Keep reading and replying to posts regularly; you will find that people have questions about things you are an ‘expert’ in. By building relationships and establishing credibility, people will come to you when they have a need for the product or service you provide.

Seek out the services of other home based moms when you need help with something. If you have done business with a certain mom, recommend her services to others when they need them! Your work at home friend will appreciate your help and will recommend your services to other people.

Eventually, someone new to the WAHM community will seek you out and ask for your advice on how to get started. Take them under your wing and show them a few helpful pointers. You may not be able to pay back all of the mothers who have helped you with your business, but you can definitely pay it forward by helping others!

The MomTraffic Forum is a really Cool Place for moms To meet other moms, online
to socialize and find support! Let's go Shopping!!!

Tools of the Trade Re: Bread Making



Bakers have a slue of tools to use when making bread. Bread making is a craft that is generally perfected over time and uses precise measurements to ensure the perfect loaf. Let’s take a look at just a few tools of the bread-making trade.

Measuring

As stated above, baking anything, let alone bread, requires exact measurements of different ingredients in order to get the right characteristics for the type of loaf you are trying to create. Many bakers rely on good measuring utensils, such as a standard measuring cup, measuring spoons and even various sizes of bowls that have notches in them to let them know how much ingredients are to be added.
There are some bakeries that even go as far as using beakers and test tubes to measure out exact quantities of ingredients. On that note, few bakeries even go as far as to look like science labs you may find at NASA. With high-tech tools, these bakers take their breads to the next level of production.
On the flip side, some well seasoned bakers only rely on proportions of ingredients, like your grandmother used to do, where one “cup” of flour is equivalent to the little blue coffee mug she had in her cupboard. While this is not the best way to make bread, it certainly worked then and should work the same now.

Mixing

In the old days, mixing tools extended as far as your reach; literally. Hands were the primary mixing devices utilized by bakers and even though some of the measuring tools have gone techie, hands are still a common denominator when it comes to making bread.
Other bakeries have invested in huge stand mixers that have a mechanical “arm” to do the mixing for them. These machines have even been scaled down to fit on the common counter top to allow efficient home mixing. While some bakers rely on the feel of dough between their fingers to know when it is done, stand mixers usually require constant supervision. The up side to a mechanical mixer is that your arms do not fall off after making large quantities of bread.

Dividing

Once you have a large ball of dough, making sure you get the exact amount in each bread pan can be difficult to achieve with the naked eye. For this practice, scales are used to divide the bread by weight. Some bakers use the standard balancing scales with a set of weights on one side while others go the digital route and tare the scale each time. Either way is sufficient for making a great loaf of bread.

Rising

Once the bread has been mixed and divided, it is time to let it rise. In the old days, bakers would let the dough sit out in the sunlight to rise. Now, there are special cabinets and even entire rooms built dedicated to helping dough to rise. These cabinets have a warm air humidifier installed, to keep the air warm and moist, allowing the yeast to break down as much sugar as possible. Again, for home baking, a simple bowl covered with a towel will do the trick, but be sure to keep it away from any air conditioning vents otherwise the bread will not rise properly.

Baking

As far as baking goes, there are two schools of thought. The traditional oven method is most commonly used in bakeries that produce large numbers of loaves each day. Single person bakeries, otherwise known as your kitchen, have opted for the set-it-and-forget-it bread maker. Both devices achieve the same end result, a beautiful and delicious loaf of bread.
While there are many different tools to use when making bread, the process is generally the same. The main thing is to find what works best for you and get consistent at making your favorite loaf. It doesn’t really matter what NASA is baking or what high-tech robotic arm is mixing the dough, what matters is that you get to enjoy your hard work and that, is the best thing since sliced bread.

Bread Maker Bagels



What You Need:

1 1/4 C of water
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp salt
4 C of bread flour
1 3/4 tsp yeast
1 tbsp sugar

How to Make It:

Place all the ingredients except the sugar into the baking pan.
Place the baking into the bread machine and select the dough cycle.
When the kneading is completely stop the bread machine.
Remove the down to a lightly floured surface, cover with a bowl and let stand for 10 minutes.
Shape the dough into a cylinder 12 inches long.
Cut the cylinder into 9 pieces then push your thumbs through the middle of each piece for form a bagel.
Spray a baking sheet lightly with a non stick cooking spray.
Place the bagel pieces onto the prepared baking sheet.
Cover and let rise in a warm, draft free area for 20 minutes or until doubled in size.
Bring a pot of water to a full boil.
Sprinkle the sugar into the water then submerges one bagel at a time, upside down with a slotted spoon for 20 seconds or until slightly inflated.
Remove the bagels and place back on the baking sheet.
Bake the bagels for 15 minutes or until nicely browned and hollow sounding when tapped on the bottom.

Makes 9 bagels

Submerging the bagels in the boiling water with the sugar gives them their shiny appearance and their chewy texture. It also deactivates the yeast to keep them from rising more. One way to test your dough to see if it has risen enough is by pressing two fingers into the dough. If the imprints remain the dough is ready to bake.

Bread Maker Review



So you have finally decided to take the plunge and get a bread maker. After all of the poking and prodding from friends, as well as the added health benefits to having fresh bread, you are trying to pick out the perfect bread maker for you. Let’s take a look at four of the top bread makers on the market and even if you don’t pick one of these, you will have a head start on what to look for in a bread machine manufacturer.

Zojirushi BBCCX20
The ultimate in bread machines, the Zojirushi BBCCX20 is definitely at the top of the leader board. This machine has settings for numerous types of breads as well as a memory function for 3 customizable settings. These custom controls allow you to set up a cycle for a certain type of bread, combine the ingredients and push one button.
The Zojirushi BBCCX20 also has a large viewing window so you can see exactly what is going on inside and with the double blade kneading action; no ingredients go unmixed or stuck to the sides of the machine. This machine can even be used to make jams, cakes and even meatloaf or lasagna. With a customer satisfaction of more than 6 to 1, this is a great machine to have in your house.

Panasonic SD-YD250
Panasonic has been in the electronics world for a number of years and has perfected the art of digital control. The Panasonic SD-YD250 boasts a two and a half pound loaf maximum and having the ability to make just about any bread you can think of doesn’t hurt either.
A 13 hour timer allows you to head to work, drop the kids off at soccer practice and by the time you get home, your bread is just finishing the cooling process. Weighing in at 18 pounds, this surprisingly big machine runs so quietly that it almost isn’t noticed until a single beep, declaring your bread is done.
Because Panasonic knows how to make quality electronics, the SD-YD250 is extremely simple to clean. With the non-stick pan, the bread slides right out easily, leaving behind very few crumbs or residue.

Sunbeam 5891
We all know the Sunbeam name from the isles of our grocery store. A long time best selling bread; why not trust their ability to create a bread maker? Apparently Sunbeam hit the nail on the head with their model 5891. With a large digital readout and three different crust shades, this two-pound loaf capacity machine is extremely simple to use.
The only concern with this machine is not the machine itself, but the recipe booklet that comes with it. According to some negative reviews, the recipes call for too much yeast, but the problem was corrected when the recipe was adjusted. All in all it’s great machine for a decent price.

Cuisinart CBK200

The king of the kitchen, Cuisinart, finally has a bread maker that can stand up to the other manufacturers. Of course, Cuisinart doesn’t do anything if they can’t put ingenuity into it and the CBK200 is no different. This machine allows for over 100 different variations of bread making and with different audible tones at
different points in the cycles, you know exactly when to add fruits and nuts, or when to remove the paddles.

The Cuisinart CBK200
also boasts convection cooking, which allows for an even baking all the way around the loaf. One downfall, suggested by customers, is the thin aluminum pan, which can scratch and dent easily if abused and does not always allow for proper heat conduction. Another issue customer’s address is the learning curve to operating the machine. With an automatic bread maker, it should just be a push and go type function.

Conclusion
Hopefully this helps to narrow down your search for the perfect bread maker. While these four machines may not make your list, the manufacturers are definitely at the top of their game when it comes to making bread. Go out and pick up a machine today; your sore arms will thank you.

Autumn Apple Pecan Bread

What You Need:

3/4 C of water
3 tbsp vegetable oil
2/3 C of sweet potatoes, mashed
2/3 C of apples, cored and chopped
3 3/4 C of bread flour
1/4 C dry milk
3 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/4 tsp yeast
1/2 C of pecans, chopped
1/3 C of raisins

How to Make It:

Put all the ingredients except the pecans and raisins into the bread machine pan.
Lock in the pan, close the lid and set the machine to the sweet cycle.
When the add ingredients signals add in the pecans and raisins.

Makes 1 (2 lb.) loaf

This bread makes a perfect accompaniment to a bowl of delicious hot soup on a chilly day. There’s no need to peel the apples before chopping them as the peel gives the bread a little added flavor. Be sure to choose sweet potatoes that have no blemishes on them. Blemishes cause a distinct bitter taste and removing the blemishes doesn’t take away that off taste. Canned sweet potatoes can be used in place of fresh ones and they will give a delicious but a slightly different taste than when using fresh potatoes.

Hand vs. Machine (Making Bread)




Ever since bread makers were invented, there has been a serious rivalry between man and machine. With either viable option, store bought is completely out of the question, but which method of homemade bread brings the most to the table? Let’s knead out the difference and see which style rises higher.
Ease of Use

Bread machines, especially those that mix the dough in the machine and allow it to rise are as simple as combine and forget. Add a timer so it goes on and off when you want it to and it almost feels like you are cheating when it comes to making the perfect loaf, after all, your mother slaved for hours over her bread.
With handmade bread, there is plenty of time mixing, combining, stirring and let’s not forget the kneading. Who can forget what seems like hours upon hours of kneading? The fact that your success as a bread maker depends upon your kneading skills is somewhat disturbing. If you under-knead, you will get a giant mess of goop that will not combine all the way or rise like it should. If you over-do the kneading, your bread will be a rock solid hunk of loaf.
Ingredients

The ingredients in homemade bread are pretty straightforward; you should have most, if not all in your pantry. Just combine, mix and knead until your arms fall off and presto – bread. Bread makers are a bit more difficult to prepare to bake on a whim. You will need to have items like dry milk, which are not typically pantry-stocked items for most homes.
In this regard, making bread by hand is the way to go because it doesn’t always have to be well planned when you want to make bread. With bread machines, you will need to continuously keep needed ingredients on hand or live close to a store. If not, there will need to be some foresight into your bread making plans.
Taste and Texture

As said before, nothing beats the taste of homemade bread and while nothing can ever compare to your grandmother’s favorite bread recipe, the bread maker does come in an extremely close second, if not nudging granny out of the top position. The bread machine doesn’t require anything but pouring the ingredients into a single container and the taste will always be consistent as long as you use the same recipe.
As far as the texture goes, we mentioned above the dangers of over kneading and under kneading. Bread makers have their own built in mixer that perfectly combines the ingredients until they have reached the point needed. This being done, you will have a consistent texture on all of your bread, all of the time.
Conclusion

After considering the three categories above, the bread mixer looks like the obvious winner here. The only thing to remember is to make sure you have all of the right ingredients on hand in case you want to make some bread on a whim. While it might feel like cheating, bread makers are a great way to make consistently yummy bread without too much effort. Visit us at The MomTrafficForum Today!

How Does Bread Work?



We eat bread almost every day. Have you ever looked at a slice of bread and noticed the tiny holes in it? It almost looks like Swiss cheese gone horribly wrong. While bread is a delectable delight, have you thought about the chemistry that goes on behind the scenes to create the chewy goodness that is known as bread?
Bakers might as well have degrees in organic chemistry; the exact science that goes behind baking the perfect loaf could be considered the eighth wonder of the world. There are numerous chemical reactions that go on beneath the surface of any loaf of bread, as well as feats of nature, which keep the loaf from either exploding or imploding on itself. Let’s take a quick look at some of the simple facts of life bakers use to create the moist and spongy concoction we know as bread.
Gas Production

Believe it or not, bakers have their own mini gas refineries, in the form of yeast. Yeast is a single-cell fungi that attacks sugars, breaking them down into alcohol and carbon dioxide gas. These little fungi have a big sweet tooth and can break down more sugar pound for pound than a kid on a sugar high at Halloween.
The carbon dioxide that is produced gives the bread the light, airy texture we all love, while the alcohol, which cooks off in the oven, adds to the complexity of the flavor. These little organisms of mass production help give bread the look, feel and smell we are familiar with.
Super Stretch

When flour, especially wheat flower, is mixed with water and kneaded, it becomes a super-elastic material to rival any balloon or rubber band you can think of. The reason this concoction becomes stretchy is because of a protein called gluten. There are actually two proteins that help develop the super stretchy material; gliadin and glutenin.
These two proteins, when combined with water gives the bread dough the ability to capture the carbon dioxide produced by the yeast in little flour compartments. As the flour holds the gas hostage, it begins to rise, double and eventually triple in size before being punched, poked and prodded, only to start the whole process over again two or three more times.
Baking

Just like the transformation between bread and toast, once the dough goes into the oven, it makes a radical change. The strands between the air bubbles are what give the bread its shape while the alcohol bakes off and develops the spongy component we all look forward to.
Once the bread begins to near the end of the baking process, the chemical reactions begin to slow down. All of the gas has been released, a solid crust has formed and the bread has taken its familiar shape. None of this could have ever happened without the mad scientist baker knowing exactly what he or she was doing. I bet you never thought bread could be such a fun and exciting food; did you?
