Hello from Diane in Sunny SoCal

Digging in with both hands experimenting with many no-knead varieties.  Delighted I found this site!

We're delighted you found this site, too! What exactly are you digging into with both hands, if your bread is no-knead? Heh-heh!

LOL!  I guess I asked for that.  Funny about that "no-knead" name when you do a wee bit & stretch, pull, fold, turn, flour, bake.

Hi, Diane.

Welcome to TFL!

I guess appreciating the sun is more pleasant than lamenting the drought.

Let us know (and see) what you are baking.

Thank you, David!  The drought *is* for real.  We are at least 10 inches down from a "normal" year of rain - such as those are any more.  Baking to learn & experiment with the different approaches between Jim Lahey & Ken Forkish, both of whose books I'm getting from the library.  I've made the Lahey version & been quite satisfied although I keep coming up with "how come" questions.  I've watched the Forskish videos & will give his approach a try. 

So, for right now: bread! glorious bread! [something there is precious little of here in TheOC ;)]
