New Year's Resolution

Hi! I'm posting to this forum as part of my New Year's Resolution. I've had a lifetime obsession/compulsion with bread that I've never really understood. I still remember many decades ago at about 10 years old trying to make bread by myself. In my 30's - I was back at it - trying to make baguettes. Finally, (another decade later) In the last 6 months I've finally found the time in my life to try to really master this. I've been baking bread 2-3 times a week steadily. Hoping this forum can help me by honestly critiquing my loaves, since I'm entirely self-taught from various cookbooks.

Hi Rebecca,

I think you have found the right place; never mind that it took you so long.   But we are all familiar with your "obsession/compulsion".   It's an affliction affecting many of us here!

Best wishes

As Andy notes, there are a lot of similarly-affected people in the TFL community.
