Hi to All


I am a novice baker - have been making sweet breads like banana, zucchini etc for a couple yrs..

I am new to bread making - my first attempt at the 5min bread was a total disaster - my family were threatening to use the bread to play catch :) - they came out that hard and dense.

Then I found a very patient person who walked me thru the process of making sourdough bread - and also gave me a starter - that one came out much better - my family atleast ate it all....

But I know I am not fully satisfied and can learn much more - then I accidently stumbled on this site....and love what I have seen so far.

I know I will learn lots of good things here...pls free to send some simple recipes my way - for me to start off on this journey!
