Hello from Illinois
Hi everyone! I have been lurking this site for several years and am finally creating an account and making my presence known! Thanks for having me!
I have been baking our family's bread for the last three years, exclusively. Within the last year, I became a home demonstrator with The Grain Pantry, and now I have the pleasure of teaching people how to bake bread in their homes. I'm living a dream!
I mill my own flours and am constantly amazed at the difference between freshly milled and store bought flours. I have a goal of completely eliminating processed flours from my baking - this is my 2014 New Years resolution.
I also love sourdough baking and have goals to improve my artisan loaves.
Thanks again for hosting this site. It is wonderful.
