new from upstate NY
hi everybody - my name is Krista (and as my screen name says, i am a really tall chick)... i live in upstate NY and i LOVE baking. until now, however, i was not a big bread baker. recently i've just found that i derive a ton of satisfaction from turning out a loaf of bread that my family can use for a few meals.
usually i bake about a loaf a week, but my husband is really in love with having fresh bread so that will probably increase. i'm just on cloud 9 reading the entries here on the forums and learning more about baking bread!
my biggest question right now: i'm looking for a recipe/method that will give me a nice crusty crust and those big holes/bubbles on the inside... my attempts to date using steam etc have fallen a bit short of what i want.
