Cheers Floyd. If my picture taking improves maybe someday I can get on the Bread Browser or, dare I say, the feature picture.

Thank you again for your kind words. Whats a guy got to do to get his breads on the "Bread Browser?" ;)

This time I used half Starter and half Poolish, the results blew me away. The Baguettes are the best I have ever made, granted my slashing needs work, but the crumb and flavor are bang on.

Cheers,

Wingnut

When you post you have to upload the photo in the first Area.  This is easy to do.

Just attach the image to the "Image" field at the very top of the post edit screen and it'll automatically show up there.

of the Grand Canyon we have in AZ Wing!   Well, maybe a baby grand crack at least!  Nice baking inside and out.  Now you have to go for txfarmer's 36 hour baggies and go for those Grand Canyon holes she is so famous for.......they don't taste like much they sure are grand.  You nare getting this bread baking thing down.

Happy Baking

Thanks for the kind words, it will take me quite a while to get bored with the flavor and crumb these "Baggies" but if I do I will try the formula you suggested.

Cheers,

When you create new content for your blog post at the very top you see the word image...you need to choose a file "photo" it tells you the size that it needs to be and says that it will display. That is how you get your pic to show for your post on the blog roll. Then you choose your pics for the content too but you have to pick one separately to get it to be in the blog roll as a separate entity. Now you know :)  Good Luck !
