Hello from Washington State.

I am yet another new bread baker who has a love affair with those yeastie beasties. I mostly have made quick breads (banana, pumpkin, zucchini..) and decided one day that I wanted to make english muffins! I have been hooked ever since.

I love collecting cook books, and have a few on bread making. Yet I just love finding recipes online. It makes me feel as though I'm cheating on my cook books, but really, I'm just looking, I promise.

Out of all of my hobbies, cooking has to be my favorite.


I'm so happy to have found you all!

Hi Kittenrydell,

Welcome.  What is your favourite breads?

Well, so far I have tried to make english muffins and white bread, and one very disasterous squaw brick.


I'm trying to perfect my white bread recipe before moving on to something new, kinda OCD that way. I'm trying to get the perfect sandwich bread, the one I have been making recently has been tasty great but really dense. I want something very soft for my sandwich bread and cant seem to find it.


le sigh


I will get there :)
