Hello from Edmonton
I've been visiting this site now since January of this year, and decided to finally say Hi. I've always enjoyed baking, something I started with my mother when I was just a boy, and recently have expanded my baking experiences to include breads. I have tried a few of the "favorite recipes" listed here including, banana bread, quick ciabatta, and the choclate faces. All of them turned out lovely, and I'll post some pictures once I figure how.
I picked up Peter's BBA and Whole Grains for my birthday back in March, and recently grabed Laurels Bread Book all of which I discoverd while surfing the Fresh Loaf. I can proudly say I haven't bought a loaf of bread since March 17th as I've been producing whole wheat/struan sandwich loaves regularly. Lucky for me, my girlfriend loves the whole grain breads and pizza doughs I have been able to produce! And yesterday I just started my first ever mother starter using Peter's pineapple juice/whole wheat flour technique. *fingers crossed* So anyways, long story short. Just saying hi, I look forward to learning even more from the community here, and love the website (it's very inspiring).
