Absent for a bit
My laptop has been in the shop, so for the past few days I've only been on the site long enough to check that there was no spam. That said, it looks like there have been some very good posts lately, like ehanner's garlic bread and bwraith's recent blog posts. I have some catching up to do.
I did bake this weekend. I tried a sourdough with chocolate chips. I added milk and some sugar to the dough and bumped up the amount of starter to around 10%. It was pretty good, but I don't think I really nailed it. Have to experiment with that some more, because I love the idea.
Oh yeah, and I got my hands on Dan Lepard's baking guide that ran with the Guardian a few weekends back. If you have any way of getting your hands on a copy, do. It is quite nice.
