Hi from California
Been a lurker here for a while now, decided I'd finally create an account and dive in on the banter.
I've been an avid cook since before I could reach the countertops. I've never really done much baking until the last 6 months or so, but I've found it really quite enjoyable. This site has been my go-to resource for all my recent bready adventures, so really thank you all for the great community here. It started with Artisan Bread in 5 I got for my birthday, and now 4 books later it's almost a borderline obsession. I'm really in awe of how much a little time and attention can turn flour and water into something so wonderful.
Anyways, took my first crack at croissants today so I thought I might as well share the results. Happy baking!
