New Introduction


Although I'm new to this delightful site, I'm certainly not new to creating breads and other baked goods. I bake bread almost every weekend and am especially fond of rye breads, which reflect my Swedish heritage. I love Russian Rye, Pumpernickle, Raisin Rye, Onion Rye, Limpa (Swedish), and New York Rye. Today, however, I'm baking Cheese Herb Bread.

I haven't had much experience with Sourdoughs - but will eventually get to it, as I look forward to developing some truly flavorfull loaves!

Kindest regards,

Wheaton, Illinois

I just baked my first rye bread today. See?

It is the round one. I haven't had a chance to taste it yet.

Please share any rye recipes you would particularly recommend.

the onion rye in bernard clayton's book is really nummy.
