How did I get started on this "hobby/lifestyle/obsession"?
Just how have I gotten so into this? LOL
I wouldn't have guessed even a few years ago that I would start baking my own breads, or that I would enjoy it. Even though I bought a bread machine many years ago, I rarely used it until recently.
It started off due to Dietary needs, with economic issues added to the mix, no pun intended. I found it almost impossible to find low sodium breads/buns/muffins on the store shelves. It has progressed into prefering the tastes of fresh baked. An added benfit is not having all the chemicals and preservatives in my food. I'm recently more into Buns and English muffins, than bread loafs. They seem to freeze better, and portion sizes are easier to control. I never seem to be able to cut bread slices evenly.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who was surprised they started this hobby/obsession. What are some of your stories?
