I'm new, I'm hungry for bread tips

Hi everyone,


I signed up 3 minutes ago.  I used to hate cooking and baking and being in the kitchen more than 3 minutes.  I don't know what happened, but all of a sudden I'm into bread and all things bread.  The site looks friendly and comprehensive in scope.  I like the fact that Peter Reinhart's book is featured (Bread Baker's Apprentice) because I bought his book last week and devouring it.


I've baked bread about 6 times now and enjoying every minute of it.  Something about kneading dough that's therapeutic...

Welcome to a very nice place dealing with all things bread.


Wander around the cyber-halls and crannies; there's certainly plenty to read and enjoy.


Be sure to visit the blogs....loads of great info there.

I shall certainly weave my way around (or should I say knead my way around).


Thanks for taking the time to welcome me!

I've been here for a few months now and have learned a LOT. Actually, I UNlearned a lot and can now make several decent kinds of bread.


Warm bread,life is good!

Really glad you're having fun with bread - I love it, too.  If you want to try a quick and delicious snack (or something fancy for a party), here's a recipe I've used and had great results with: whole wheat bread 


Enjoy your experiments!
