Perseverance, and TFL
Thought I'd post this. I dug up this old photo I took of my very first bread that I tried to make, over a year ago.
I call it my "brain bread" or "poop bread" or something. "Abstract Art" -- yeah, that's it!
For new bread bakers: There is hope! Keep trying.
(note: I still consider myself very much in the 'newbie' category, but with reading of books, and much help from TFL, and some perserverance, there was hope...)..
*laugh*. Happy baking!
