Hello from Hawaii

Hello my name is Casey and I am pursuing artisan bread baking.  I am thankful to be a part of this group with people that have a passion for baking. 

I have always baked items, but without knowledge and process behind the recipe.  I find my pursuit exciting and intriguing.  I thought  I would begin with a baguette since the while family loves it.  Well, it has been quite an adventure.  I think I am just beginning to learn to work with hydration doughs.


I have to admit baking in Hawaii without all the handy stores with reasonably priced tools make Amazon a necessity As well as TJ MAXX.

Warm Regards,

Hello Darwin and Peacock,

nice to meet you both.  I am not sure I run into many deals, but my eyes will be open :). I hit TJ MAXX and have found herbs De Provence, black truffle oil etc.


warm Regards,
