Just because the season of festive cooking is over doesn't mean you can't still get busy in the kitchen. In fact, those snowy days of January when it's just simply too cold to step outside are ideal for staying in and baking. Heat up your home with a hearty and warm homemade loaf of bread, baked fresh in your very own Sunbeam® Programmable Bread Maker.

Not only does this bread maker churn out flavorful, soft bread, it also has an ExpressBake® cycle option that cooks your loaf in under an hour. But if you've got the fireplace going, the music softly playing and all the time in the world - activate the 13-hour delay bake which allows you to prepare all of the ingredients and have a fresh loaf when you wake up the next morning. This winter, try out one of these artisan-style bread recipes.
