It's Been Exactly a Year Since Our First TFL Post - The Index

It's is hard to believe that a year has passes so fast.  It has been a great baking and blogging experience thanks to all Fresh Lofians that make this community a unique, fun and fine forum for learning about way more than just bread.  Thanks from me and my apprentice to all of you.  I have learned much from so many here and so has my apprentice - even though she is cute as all get out she is still dumb as a stump and nearly worthless in the kitchen except for her ability to taste and smell better than anyone who has a shorter nose.

We baked way more than 100 different bread recipes.  Don't know for sure how many but we stopped counting a t 100.  A few were white, classical and more simple, not easy mind you, and many more that darker, more complex yet still classic.  Then there were those that were...different and sometimes inspired by Ian's classic walks down the aisles of the auto parts store.

In any event, here is our blog index for the last year.  We also managed to use up our total allotment for photo megabytes on the site too and will have to consult with Floyd about that small problem.

The Ravens managed to hold on to the Superbowl win in spite of near darkness .  A classic game for sure.

Wow, that is quite a list!

I think I just doubled your upload quota.  Let me know if that is not the case.

Fresh Lofians couldn't get along without it.    Glad you have updates on the way too.  It was fun to go back though the list and reminisce about things that seem like yesterday but you forgot all about.  This site proves that all you ever what to know about bread is right here - if you live long enough to get to it all :-)

Next time I upload a picture I will let you know if the upload quotas is doubled.  It won't be too long at the rate my apprentice bakes - she has a very dark bread trying to proof in a tin on the heating pad right now.

What a list!  Thanks so much for collecting it - I've saved as favourite and will be exploring this year

I did read your latest Panettone post - <grin> my sympathies!  I've used the panettone cases (UK based, Bakery Bits stock them) - but the first time i did this the panettone decided to fall out of the case and land on its nose; this year the first batch rose on baking too much then slithered down the side of the case (muffin top?); my Pasquale doves (similar bread, different shape) were fine until I put the glaze on, which went straight through the dough and collected on the bottom; and so on and so on... Still worth the challenge, though!

thanks again for sharing your great baking, great list, and lovely apprentice!

The list is a real big help for me to find things fast.  With such a large blog it was getting difficult and time consuming to fimd anything ! 

Panettone has been 5 out of 6 plopped on the floor for me.   But, I think I have it figured out  and what to do next time.  I'm running skewers though at the top after it comes out of the oven so it cant't fall out when it is turned over.  Well, that is the plan anyway and plans have many ways of not turning out exactly as planned.......

It seems panettone can be a real struggle  for many - except for Michael Wilson of course :-)  Panettone just isn't very forgiving for some reason. 

Happy baking

Impressive list!  Congratulations on a great baking year.  Looking forward to 2013 :)

We will continue to endeavor to preserver!  We sure learned a lot from TFL community this past year.   My baking sure is better no question about that.  I'm thinking the low hanging fruit has been picked though and now it gets more difficult.  But the most famous person that never lived had a saying for that too.

I think it was Yoda that said something like 'Try or try not Makes no difference ....You must do!  When you do, you either succeed or fail or somewhere in between but, once it is done,  you have a chance of doing it better next time :-)

Thanks for the congrats FlourChild - I look for ward to your future bakes and posts.

Off to a good start on a new baking year! I enjoy reading about your adventures but I have to wait my turn when you write of those when you are accompanied by your faithful baking apprentice. Then I have my apprentice's floury footprints on my keyboard. That's not too difficult to clean up, but when she shows her approval or sends your apprentice a message by licking the screen.....

Looking forward to many more happy, floury posts. Thanks for thinking of the index, I'll save it for future research (now there is a mix of terms, future and re-search) it is early yet, need more coffee.

That is exactly what they are too :-)  I do take my apprentice with me for all of them too.  But, she only gets blamed .....eeerrrrr....  noted when the baking things go terribly wrong - which is a frequent occurrence when you are adventuring around all over the place like the ninny she is....well, when she is not not sleeping at any rate :-)

We will bake on into another ill advised adventure before you know it and you will have floury footprints to clean up after :-)

Happy Baking in 2013 Barbara!

Amazed that you took time out from baking to assemble such a list.  What...auto parts stores closed on Super Bowl Sunday in AZ?  Power outage?

Most impressive thing about that impressive list is that there's hardly any (maybe none) duplication and essentially every bread is original.  What a monumuent of creativity, dab!  You're living that "have no fear" philosophy for sure.

And somebody should: Thank you for how you so generously support both the oldies and newbies with your comments @ TFL.  Folks like you make this such a welcoming place on the 'net.

Best of Health and Happy Baking to you and your apprentice in 2013!

character attributes that I know of that cause failure are; Fear, pride and ego.   I say have no fear and avoid the other two at all costs :-) 

Thanks for the great compliment about helping others Tom.  You do the same thing otherwise I would have never learned about Toadies - one of the great bread flavorings known only to the fearless!.  Just about everythong I know aboiut bread I learned here over the last year from all sorts of folks.  Hempy Hanseata taught me about seeds and wild rice.  Mini Oven taght me how to fill a pan and when to fill it and about rye breads and Mini Ovens.  Janet taught me about her mash, Phil taught me about sage and walnuts, soakers, rye bran on rye to tell you when to bake it off and punkin savory pie.  Andy taught me all kinds if things about rye, as well as, Brazil nuts and prunes.   txfarmer taught me about lamentations of lamination, holes and 36 hour baguettes and too much to mention.  Varda taught me about Titzel,  chocolate malt and crumby baking.  John (the SOB himself) reminded me of turkey roasters, DO's and how they put crust on bread,.  The GMA's remind me how great it is to bake bread - especially with family and how fun it really is. teketeke taught me all about yeast water and Japanese White Sandwich bread.  Breadsong taught me about shapes, roses and stencils.  Thomas Chacon was the inspiration for the Chacon.  David Snyder taught me all the different methods and ways to make breads with holes, sour, texture and tastes and retarding and shaping dough but he still has a way to go with that slashing thing.   Sylvia and her steam is renowned as are her pides and pizza.  Ian of course is a kindred spirit and I learned from him that anything edible, and many things not, can be put in bread someway really tasty - or not! 

Perhaps not so oddly, all of these folks influenced the one bread I have proofing today that has Toadies in it of course, if it would proof instead of just sitting there, and it is no coincidence that this bread is nothing more than a tribute to all of them and so many more who taught me how to make this bread and so many others.    That is what TFL is all about;  helping others make good bread. If you are doing something else you are doing something wrong :-)

Being an artist and architect,  the creativity comes pretty naturally.  In those fields, if you copy someone 's else's work they frown upon that artistically and ethically -  still even that  doesn't stop me if I see a nice loaf on TFL and wonder what it tastes like :-)  After 100 and more different breads,  there are only 10,000 more to go before my apprentice can sleep.  She is pretty good at that,.

Thanks for the kind words Tom - and the Toadies too!

DA ... I think I almost had a stroke after paging through your enormous list of recipes....it was like having a strobe light shining in my eyes!  I just picked up some spark plugs today so watch out! 

Seriously my friend I'm overly impressed with your list of accomplishments and glad I could play a small part in inspiring you.  Your recipes and breads have come along way in a year and I don't think anyone would argue how impressive they are.  I look forward to sharing your baking adventures in the coming days.

Regards

Ian

I read your ingredient list nearly every time you post !  You are a kindred spirit with no fear, a tilt for serendipidy and looking for adventure in what ever way it comes (Born to be Wild).  I have learned much from you this past year my friend.  Keep it up!  I would suggest scalding and soaking the spark plugs for a longer time than normal though - just to make sure they soften up a little bit.....

Retarded the Dark Loaf since it was so low to rise.  Now it will probably over proof in the fridge during the 14 hours overnight but somehow  taste better :-)

Look forward to your next bake.  Have got to get my apprentice some sodium hydroxide, safety goggles and 2 pair of rubber chemical proof gloves.    She said only Germans like her can make a pretzel out of anything,

Bake On!

I'm 1/4 German so my pretzels won't be as authentic as Lucy your apprentice.

I saw you latest bake and you have certainly outdone yourself this time.  I can't wait to hear about and see the crumb.  If it comes out like I expect we will all be in for a treat.

I have not figured out my next bake yet.  Finishing up this weekends pretzels and last weeks breads so maybe in a few days I will feel inspired.  Have a few recipes I wanted to try so maybe I will force myself to follow someone elses recipe for a change.....we will see :). 

Best.
