I think bread hates me
hi all, this is my 1st post & I can bake cookies & cakes & even a pretty mean pie crust......but bread seems to be out of my league...I have most of the books on bread (reinhart, beard etc)...even the calvel videos...but it always comes out BAD....this is really embarrassing & I do so hate to ask but all I want is a plain ol decent loaf of bread.
Does anyone have a step by step easy direction w/the overnite mixture & then just baking the next day...I have KA flour, AP & Bread...even some white whole wheat (not really my cup o tea tho)...SAF instant yeast....all very fresh ingredients...oven seems to be at the correct temp...water is decent....maybe I just have a poxie on me??? I grew up in NY & on bread from Arthur Ave in the Bronx...outrageous stuff...not that I will even presume to get to that stage...just a nice decent loaf for sammies or toast.....I'm in the Arizona mountains now & the food leaves alot to be desired so I'm hoping some of you will take pity on me.
here is my email if anyone would like to yell at me or scold me...in private if you please...I do tend to cry easily...or send me some sage advice...anything will be appreciated...thank you....Pat
