A neophyte baker from Cincinnati Ohio
Hello TFL members!
I am so happy to finally sign up on TFL after a few years of obsessing over baking tips and hints so generously shared by the members here.
My baking is hit or miss, mainly because I am not patient and diligent about the processes. Oh, and I'm forgetful too! So I have some challenges to overcome, but with all the help on this site I see no reason why my baking talent shouldn't soar! So many talented bakers here!
Mainly I bake for our family and friends and lately we (my college age son and daughter bake along with me) have been experimenting with the White Whole Wheat recipes on the KAF site. Some of our 'tests' have been very successful, and others, not so much. We are trying to reduce refined flour in our diet for health reasons (like so many others) and so we have taken up bread baking in earnest.
Other than WW baking, our other recent challenges include: (perfect) pizza dough, pan de mie, soft pretzels and finally a Cincinnati specialty called 'Spreken' ( sweet bread).
We are looking forward to spending lots of time studying the site! Judy
