I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone here on TFL for helping me through my first two big bread baking adventures!


After being mesmerized by the promotional video for Tartine Bread (www.tartinebread.com) I became obsessed with the idea of baking my own crusty yummy bread at home.  At about the same time I snagged the book, this cautionary column in SF Weekly was published (http://blogs.sfweekly.com/foodie/2010/11/baking_from_tartine_bread_part_1.php).  A little bummed but still enthusiastic, I took to the web to search for pointers from those who had already tried the Tartine recipe.


After sifting through the wonderful posts from all of you, I finally felt prepared to take on the country loaf.  While my loaves were a little overproofed during the final rise, and I had some trouble scoring, they still came out pretty well:




 


Then, because I'd read so many comparisons to/recommendations for the No Knead Bread, I thought I'd try my hand at that too!




So, thanks again TFL members!  You helped me through my first two real bread baking experiences, and for that I'm very grateful :)
