My name is Jennifer and I am one very grateful newbie.
My bread odyssey began a few months back while shopping at the grocery store: I'd finally had it up to -here- with the cost of bread vs. the quality. We live in a hideously remote location, the selection is bad and we're feeding three growing boys. My priority, of course, is my kids; I can't do a thing in the world about my location; I can definitely do something about the quality of our food.
Hey all you DLX users, I just took delivery of a new DLX Assistant mixer which looks like it will be fun. I have read where the first thing to know is that the water goes in first and the flour as it becomes incorporated. I'm wondering about the roller position is a little confusing. The manual says fix the roller 1 inch away for a 2 loaf batch and 1.5 inches for 3 loaves and so on. Others seem to say leave it loose and let it ride the edge.
