Need breadnerd friends!
Just discovered this site and forum a couple weeks ago. I'm getting back into sourdough baking after a few years off and am falling back in love with the process, challenge and of course...the yum.
I'm a bit more haphazard I think than the majority here but I'm anxious to learn more about better equipment, precise measurements and temperature control. I love having mixed results though too. It's fun for me to try and adjust my method and recipes with the changing humidity, temperatures and seasons. I feel like I'm getting more in tune with the moods and quirks of my kitchen's eco-system and gaining unique intimacy with my food.
I'm working towards not buying any of my household's baked goods and switching all to sourdough. Right now I'm baking our bread, pita and pizza dough but I'm practicing recipes for bagels and cinnamon rolls and want to do all our english muffins and hotdog and hamburger buns eventually. One day I'd love to start a home business maybe if I can tune in/improve my skills enough.
I don't know anyone else well who bakes as much as me and I don't know anyone in my area that does sourdough so I'm excited to get some online companionship at least.
Thanks for being here!
