Hubby bought me a vita mix to grind my owm flours and cereals. I also make juice and soups with it. He then bought a bosch. My friends who use a bosch have used their's for 20 years! I use mine twice a week to make all our breads. I know initially they are an expense but my health did not allow me to do everything by hand that I used to do. We also bought a soy milk maker. I do not have a country home so I can not raise goats anymore. The soy milk maker lets me use nonGMO soybeans and provide milk and tofu for pennies a pound.
I used to think I made decent bread but we got a book called No More Bricks with some great basic recipes and my bread is now much softer. Even the grandkids like it better.

We have a Vita Mix and Bosch also. We have not used the Vita Mix much yet, we still need to learn the ins and outs of that. We have a Bosch Whisper Mill and Mixer. My wife and girls use it to make our homemade bread.
Learn to know Christ and him crucified. Learn to sing to him, and say, "Lord Jesus, you are my righteousness, I am your sin. You have taken upon yourself what is mine and given me what is yours. You have become what you were not so that I might become what I was not." --Martin Luther
We have limited space in our RV but we did get a Brevill juicer for all the veg we buy at farmer's markets. We don't use our oven very much because it is so tiny and being a gas oven it doesn't cook very evenly. Everything else I mix up by hand. I have an extra deep corning ware casserole that doubles as a mixing bowl.
Most of my bread baking is biscuits in the campfire dutch oven. I make up 2 or 3 weeks' worth of biscuits and freeze them. The microwave in the tiny galley helps reheat them. To me they taste better than store bought sliced bread.
PS: I use the juicer's pulp to make zucchini bread or carrot bread. Those come out of the dutch oven tasting so good that it's gone before it has a chance to cool completely. The grandchildren love to come spend the night with us in the RV and cook on the campfire. Such happy faces!
