New baker's luck?
Hello! I've recently taken up baking in lieu of my quitting smoking. I started with cooking, pots of pork and beans, chili and such. But then made flat-dumplings for a southern style chicken and dumplings. From there, I thought, "Why not try bread!" and began by making a loaf of rye bread. It was a little confusing and such to someone like me who didn't really know any lingo.. But my third attempt at bread was sourdough. I looked into everything I could find and found a little starter recipe from http://www.mysisterskitchenonline.com/2006/11/04/sourdough-starter/  and worked with that.
My results so far have been met with raving reviews from family. :)
It was really delicious! And I plan to continue trying new things with sourdough. Lately baking has been one of the most interesting things I've come across. This from a 24 year old man who usually just raves about coffee and video games! :))) And I hope to contribute to this site more in the future.
