New to site

Hi all,

I have been looking over this site and I think I am in love. It's good to know there are others who take bread as seriously as I do (my family laughs at my "bread obsession"), but that is what comes from being raised by a Frenchman! Even though I love all the different styles of bread I have never baked anything other than regular sandwich loaves myself, so I am going to give it a try. I hear the corner bakery crying already. :-( I am looking forward to trying all the different recipes and actually producing some good loaves myself. Then I can EARN the nick-name "bread snob".

Hi Shawn, we're glad to have you join us! I can totally relate to your 'bread obsession'. My family makes jokes about me, too. Recently I was in the computer room and I heard my boys come in the house, rattling bags and talking about tacos. I jokingly hollered at them, "Oh, what did you bring me for dinner?" The reply I got was, "Sorry, Mom, but Taco Bell doesn't sell bread!"
