This is the Boule I made from the starter I had posted last week on my first try at sourdoughs and the post below is the loaf type one I baked... I am somewhat timid to get that nice crispy brown look I see Im afraid Im burning it, I will set it aside on my next attempt and throw caution to the wind. In any case I am quite happy with my newfound hobby.

Hi from Fairfax, VA.  My name's Maya, and up until a week ago I've never even *thought* about baking bread.Then, thanks to this site, I was able to make my first baguettes ever today, by hand, with no bread maker, from scratch - actual picture below - I can't believe it.  I created a combined recipe using Fromartz, Reinhard and others to make a 68% hydration dough using a 100% hydration poolish that I made last night, and I'm totally jazzed at what I got out of my baguettes today.
