Hi to all,
I am glad to have found this forum and I am impressed with the few posts I have read.
My interest in baking bread stems from growing up in the Philadelphia PA area and enjoying hoagies, steak sandwiches, and cheesesteak sandwiches for many years. When I moved out of the Philadelphia area I really missed these wonderful sandwiches. I knew the real secret behind the great Phila sandwiches was the roll and I thought, I'll just bake my own. I learned very quickly that it was easier to say than do. Lately I am making a satisfactory roll but still not quite what I would like but at the same time my rolls are far superior to anything on the local market. In the process I have also developed an interest in general bread baking.
