I recently joined your website, and it's great.  My mother taught me to bake bread, and my grandma taught me how to make bagels, and I still love the feel of bread dough!!  I don't usually measure ingredients; I just go by feel, and that gives good success most of the time, but also gives a few bombs!!  I just ordered a kitchen scale, so I'm going to start measuring things.  And I'm going to try the slap and fold method of kneading.


BTW, Cooks Illustrated is a great cooking magazine, and they often have good bread and pizza recipes.  I like that they explain the scientific reason behind techniques and ingredients.
