Am I Doing Something Horrifically Wrong?
I've been adding all of my dry ingredients together and then adding the water slowly. So essentially flour, salt, yeast, whatever herbs I want to try, etc. Then I throw in the water and mix the whole thing before kneading. The bread comes out fine-ish (I believe, I'm still pretty new at all this), but I wanted to double check that this wasn't causing any issues I didn't know about. Thanks!
