Rich White Bread for the Food Processor - W/ Rapid Rise Yeast

"This recipe comes from the Fleishman's Yeast site-it uses Rapid Rise ( also know as bread machine) Yeast. Rapid Yeast only needs 1 rise instead of two. I have changed the recipe only a bit ( and I added some additional directions) to make the recipe easier to follow."

Hello fellow cooks-I am on OBGYN doctor and I am new to this website. . I love RecipeZaar since there are so many, easy, delicious, tested recipes. Between myself and my boyfriend, we have 5 children so there is always someone hungry-the family is so happy about the new, freshly cooked foods that have been gracing our table as of late. Gardening- here in south florida we have lots of tropical fruit trees - is another hobby that I enjoy. We love scuba diving too. Recently, I did a tandem parachute jump.
