Intro from PA


I'm glad to have finally registered here, after months of lurking. I've been baking bread for about 20 years, but only in the past few years have I discovered the joys of artisan breads. I grind many of my own grains; I'm lucky enough to live near Amish country where I can pick up a sack of Montana Prairie Gold wheat whenever the need arises. I'm currently loving the Bread Baker's Apprentice and am going to cook my way through the book. Should be fun. When I'm not baking, I'm working part-time (pharmacy tech) and being a busy mom of six kiddos ages 20-12 (5 boys, 1 girl). I look forward to learning a lot from all of you!
