Bread recipes requested

What with Jamie's new food restrictions, and the exhorbitant cost of bread without milk that is also not processed in a facility with nuts or peanuts, I'm begging for simple bread recipes. I think I'll be having to bake my bread this summer (that is, if it's cheaper). I'm trying to find any way I can to cut costs this summer, as we're all broke (I think the whole country can relate to that!)

Also, if anyone has any yummy milkless and nutless dessert recipes, and things a small boy can pack in his lunch to summer daycare, it would be much appreciated if you would share! (Annie-Lou, I'm going to see if Jamie likes your chapatis or not, as that sounds like a good thing for me to put in his lunch this summer).

I've read that you can substitute water or juice for milk in most recipes. I used to drink rice milk and loved it. I think for many recipes you could substitute rice or soy milk. One good thing about rice milk is you don't have to refrigerate it until you open it, so if you find it on sale you can stock up.

I like to make muffins for snack. They freeze well and can be heated up in the microwave or can thaw out in a lunchbox in a ziplock baggie.

I'll try making some today without milk and let you know how they turn out. I like oatmeal muffins (I can pretend they're healthy) and corn muffins.

One of my favorite things about muffins is they don't require a loud electric mixer, so you can make them last minute, like, late at night or early in the morning, without waking up neighbors or roommates!

I just tried making oatmeal muffins without milk, and they were okay! I think they'd be better with some substitution other than water, like juice or soy milk or something, but they're pretty good! I'll e-mail you the recipe.
