Hi everyone, I'm new to The Fresh Loaf

I recently got into bread baking and am having a great time with all the different types of breads out there.

Bread is a lot of fun, isn't it?  Looking forward to see what you do with it.

Hi there. What kind of breads do you like the most? What country are you in? Feel free to ask a lot of questions.

I can hardly wait to take a look at the recipes, I haven't so far.   This weekend I tried a quick rustic bread to have with cream potato and turkey soup.  My family only wants this bread from now on. Made 2 loaves Saturday and have more dough rising already. I'm anxious to try a traditional rustic bread that takes longer to rise.  In June, after some trial and error, I started my own sourdough and use it weekly for sourdough pizza crust.  I have also used my sourdough for breadbowls for chili.  The bread bowls didn't turn out so well, but I'll try again.  I've also found a french bread recipe for garlic toast.  I'm in Southwestern USA so keeping the house warm for rising is not usually a problem,  quite the opposite.
