Hello all, Brian Hear,

This year I made my New Years resolution to be for me to learn how to bake yeast breads. It has always been something that daunted me in the kitchen and I love the kitchen. So tonight I made my first attempt at making a yeast bread. I am both happy with the results and have a LONG way to go in my learning.  I look forward to sharing my creations and growth as a baker with you along my journey.

That is wonderful for a first attempt. My first attempt could have been used as a door stop. Great job!

That's a really splendid looking loaf you made Brian, good work! I wish I could say my first loaf looked any where near as good as that.

Well thank you all for the encouragement. This is what it looked like the next morning when I turned it into french toast!
