Baking me humble
Hi TFLers! I am an amateur bread baker from Champaign, IL. Sometime last year, I started baking Jim Lahey's no-knead bread and it turns out (no one warned me), it is a gateway drug. After being extremely pleased with myself for producing lovely, fresh loaves of bread right in my home oven, I started craving something with more flavor - enter the sourdough obsession. I successfully cultivated my little army of wild yeast earlier this year and then proceeded to bake many a doorstops and frisbies before I sought out this site. I knew I was in good company when I started producing more edible sourdough specimens by heeding the advice of fellow bakers on this site. From me, my family, and my teeth, thank you. I learn more everyday.
