Lucky to have found you
It's been an amazing 3 weeks. Through strenuously browsing posts/photos/recipes on TFL for hours (literally...^^) everyday, I have embarked on my bread making journey with of all you guiding me through each and every baby step. I belive the most appropriate way to express my appreciation is to bravely share the progress I made so far and hopefully I could have more to offer in the future to come!!!
It all started with Floyd's Simple White Bread: somehow it turned out only half the size...albeit with all the right amount of ingredients :p ...it did taste all right after being toasted though...
2nd try on the "Same" Simple White Bread: what a difference a day's search on TFL can make!!! I know I could be biased, but it really tasted great.
After this minor success, I ventured into malking Buttermilk Cluster, Poolish White Bread, Rustic Bread, Daily Bread, Honey Buttermilk Bread, Apple Walnut Bread (minus Walmut...still delicious though), Semolina Sandwich Bread, the lovely Struan Bread and I even tried my luck on Brioche (very arrogant indeed ^^) As you might have guessd, yes, I have been baking almost everyday with consequence on the waistline!!! How can a satisfying and most enjoyable hobby come with such penalty??? Any of you have the same "expansion" problem???
And here are the ones I baked this Saturday: Top: Ciabatta; bottom left: Italian; bottom right: Baked Potato Bread with So So So much bacon
Want to say thank you to every one of you and the webmaster Floyd, but I think this concludes best: "it's truly lucky that I have found you all here at TFL"!
