Greetings from Pittsburgh

Hi! What a great forum you guys have here!  My wife and I decided to do an experiement this April to abandon store-bought bread and bake our own at home all month.  What a success! It's mid-may and we are going strong.  I'm not sure I could imagine going back.  My better half is the real brains of the operation, but I take a turn in the kitchen when needed.  We are always looking for new ideas and I'm sure we will find some great ones here on this site.

If it is new ideas you seek, you should more than enough to keep you occupied here on TFL ;-)

Hi!, I'm mrplatts wife, Marie. This is a great site! I'm looking to expanding into sourdough and learning some new recipes and techniques.  This weekend, I plan to start some flat breads.
