Another Newb - Colorado
My name is David, and I've recently found that baking bread complements my interest in cooking and eating quite nicely, so it's becoming a new hobby.
I suspect that living at 6,000 ft above sea level in a 0% humidity environment makes things a bit different, but my experience of a couple months suggests that making delicious bread is not rocket science - also more fun than rocket science. So far my favorite things to make are baguettes from my starter (doubly good on a tight budget), and my biggest challenge is to produce a wheat sandwich loaf to surpass what the grocery carries. Also challenged at using bread pans - my loaves seem to stick about 50% of the time no matter what I do.
I've been reading this site for a while and decided I ought to sign up and start talking.
