Brand new baker saying hi

January 2, 2009 - 8:12pm -- Janet Campbell


I came to baking a little later than most... about three weeks ago actually. For some reason I decided I wanted to learn how to make homemade bread and so I began my adventure in the world of all things bread. I tried a couple of recipes and found some success with my first couple of loaves of basic white sandwich bread but my husband loves multigrain so I decided for my third loaf multigrain it is. Disaster. It rose but not by much and it tasted too yeasty. My husband liked it but he's a beer drinker and I'm not so maybe that explained his reaction!

Baking in Barbados

December 12, 2008 - 9:40am -- countrygirl84

Hello everyone!! I must first comment on how lovely a site this is! I'm a long time cake and cookie baker but I've just recently decided to try my hand at baking bread. I'm a Canadian who has just moved to Barbados for my fiance's work and have been looking for something to pass the days while my boy is out during the day :) I find store bought things to be quite expensive here so I figured it might save some moolah and be some good times. I tried a pizza dough recipe last night and made some flour tortillas today and had so much fun! Looking forward to trying my first loaf.
