A few recipes or many recipes?
As a new baker, I am have been pouring over books and online recipes. Given my personality, I want to always try different recipes and tinker with things. On the other hand, my mother-in-law has baked the same 3-4 recipes for 50 years. Her wheat bread is always the same, her rye bread is always the same, etc. I know this says something about our personalities and also our level of baking experience. I would be interested to hear if you settle into a few recipes that you love or if you like to experiment with lots of different recipes.
After trying a few wheat recipes, I found one that I really like. With my "what's around the bend" personality, I am tempted to keep switching the recipe.
What advice would you have for a new baker? Just stick to a few recipes? Keep experimenting?
If you are like my mother-in-law and stick to a few recipes, how did you settle into a recipe.
I know that there is no wrong or right answer hear, but I would be curious about your thoughts.
