  1. 5 stars
    Loved the bread the first time I made it and would love to share as gifts for Christmas. My question is, can this bread be frozen so it can take a trip through the mail, or would it not take well to being frozen?

  2. Looks delicious, but we are unable to tolerate milk. Is Soy milk a good substitute or what do you recommend?
