New to baking bread and to The Fresh Loaf
I have been tinkering with bread making for the past few months and have only gotten serious in this endeavor the past couple of weeks. How fortunate for me to find this fantastic site so quickly. I was lucky enough to find a very simple white bread recipe that the family thinks is delicious but I had no idea how or why it all worked. After reading the Lessons and Handbook sections, I have a much better grasp on what I am doing and not doing and why some of the bread turned out perfect and some not so perfect. (Ran out of Gold Metal Flour and went to my old stand by White Lily, that I have used for years to make the kids pancakes and waffles. Now I know why I liked White Lily so much) Needless to say, I have switched to King Arthur and am anxiously awaiting the results of the three loaves of bread currently in the oven.
To say I have questions, is an understatement. Which tread would be the proper topic location?
Thanks in advance for your assistance and I look forward to all this site has to offer. Hopefully, someday I will reach the skill level where I might be able to contribute.
The Best to Everyone
