Greetings from Sunny Florida
I found this site about a week ago and have been reading around daily since. I've never baked bread (or much of anything really other than meats and veggies that required baking, but you know what I mean). I have an immense passion for cooking, but always steared clear of baking because I've always been really scattered and baking requires a level of accuracy and organization that I lack. However, I've been trying to quiet my mind lately and decided to give baking bread a go. I gave it my first go with the recipe for rustic bread on the main page. I had an amazing time with the entire baking process and although my loaf isn't exactly attractive, it tasted really great and I'm proud of myself for seeing it through.
So, anyway... my name is Mashi from Miami, FL and I look forward to baking more bread. Here are pictures of my first loaf (forgive the weirdness of one of them, I accidently pulled the cord out mid upload and I think it damaged the image.
