Thank you Floyd!!!
I don't know when I first read you web page. It's been a couple of years now, I would guess. You gave me the courage to try to bake. I've made some tasty breads and pizza since then.
I finally got around to ordering "The Bread Baker's Apprentice" from the link on your site. It is a wonderful book. I am only about 50 pages in so far, but it is great!
It seems as though most of the ideas in the book, I've already read here! I'm not bashing the book - it is great, I'm glad I finally bought it; I'm just singing praises of your beautiful web site!
If my enthusiasm doesn't wane by next summer, I think it's time to build that backyard oven!
Thanks again Floyd!
