Heart of Wheat Bread

Bread, bread, bread and more bread.  
Chris and I are on a bread kick and this is the first one that I have tried out of the Bread Bible.  This is just a simple rustic bread but it has a few tablespoons of fresh wheat germ.  Wheat germ has many essential nutrients and is a good source of fiber.  It gives the bread a more wheaty, hearty, yummy taste.  

This was also my first try at slashing or making cuts in the dough.  I think I made them a little too wide but now I know for next time.  Making your own bread is really fun and satisfying.  It is a little intimidating at first but give it a try!!
