I loath bread makers. I also make all my own bread a site you may want to check out is
They do have bread maker recipes but ive never owned a bread maker and like doing it all by hand it;'s kinda therputic all that punching and kneading
These recipes do look quite tasty thanks for the links gus.

this one ive been dying to try but can;t make it
it seems like a good halloween bread and you could easily replace the butternut with pumpkin,
if anyone give it a shot let me know how it is.
