Newbie here!

I've recently started getting more serious about baking our family's bread and find my internet searches keep bringing me here....so I thought I'd join in the fun!  I started out with a bread machine quite a few years ago & when it broke I decided to start trying it with my own hands.  What fun!  For the past 6 months I've been milling my own flour & am wanting to perfect a sprouted grain bread (not having much luck).  So you'll probably find me hanging out around those folks.  Ha!  


Thanks for sharing all your wisdom & I look forward to learning from you all!

to the family of newbies, rookies and novices.  Like you I started out with a bread machine.  The bread that came out was edible but far from satisfactory.  I had to eat it all myself since they weren't good enough to give away.  When my baking class started bread baking classes, I have not used my machine anymore and it is now sitting in my storeroom untouched.  I found TFL by chance and have gained some very useful knowledge from all the experts here. This is one site I check out everynight before I go to bed :)

Hi, I am new to the wb site as well, though I new it before and I have been baking without neither bread machine nor mixer for about a year now... I even make bagels, whose dough is proverbially tought to develop by hand! And check them out...

You guys should freecycle those old bread machines. Create some new "Bread Heads".
