Long Time Lurker, First Time Poster

Just got in to bread about a month or so ago.  This site has been extremely helpful in my learning process.  Looking forward to learning more and begging for help when I screw up badly!


For your time, pictures of my last two bakes:


Pumpernickel, from The Bread Bible.  It has a bitter finish but is very soft crumb with a lot of flavor.


A Fig & Pecan number I modified from a no-knead recipe I found on the interwebs.  It was OK but I thought overcooked and needed better preferment/flavor.
