Hello from Alabama

Hello, I'm new here. I have always loved baking bread, but I'm afraid I'm not very good at it, so I'm going to learn. I'm home recovering from some shoulder surgery so although I am a little limited in hand mixing capability, I can let my mixer do the heavy stuff. I love any fresh bread, hubby loves english muffins and bagels, so I have a lot to learn. You all bake such beautiful bread! My best effort has been the french bread recipe in the little Kitchen Aid cookbook that comes with the mixer. I can't wait to try some new recipes. I'm an old pioneer, I guess, growing vegetables, making my own lye soap and now trying to bake our bread.

I broke my shoulder two years ago and for awhile, I actually bought bread (shocking!), but after a bit I started mixing it in my KitchenAid, and while it was still painful, the homemade was much appreciated by the family.  Good luck with your shoulder!
