um, ahem. the reports of the Zojirushi bread machine's death were a little exaggerated. I managed to resuscitate it for at least one more loaf. but it's definitely time for it to live out its last days baking simple loaves while I quietly search for a worthy successor. so still looking for (Zojirushi only; I'm fanatically loyal to this brand) recommendations, but please keep them kind of quiet, in case the old bread machine reads this blog.
no, I'm NOT crazy. why do you ask?
