Hello from Eugene Oregon

Hi. I'm new here and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm from Eugene and just discovered the joy of baking my own bread. In fact, the process is almost becoming addictive. I knew on an intellectual level that home made bread would probably be better than store bought but... Damn it's good.

Hi from Marysville, Washington!  I have a few cousins that live outside Eugene and a bunch in Portland.

 Bread baking is an addictive pursuit!  Once you get that perfect'll never look at store bought bread the same way.  I've baked bread for my family for over 50 years as well as worked as a baker in Texas for a large school on and off during the 70's.   It took me a little while to figure out how to work with dough at sea level but I think I got it figured out now after 25 years.
