Making bread in a bag

I'm a fan of recipes that are yummy and look fairly easy to complete. Unless it's breakfast type breads, I tend to stay away from bread baking. Many times it's time consuming, and I don't get the results I'm hoping for. Well, this Bread in a Bag recipe from Delish caught my eye. It looks like it's on the easier side of bread baking, fun and yummy too. It's listed as a kiddo friendly recipe. Could be a winner for all. Quick, easy & yummy w/ the holiday season coming would Rock too!  Here's how they do it ...
