A reminder for beginners: the "Lessons" have recipes too!
Just a reminder for new people browsing the site.
There are some very basic recipes for the first-time baker interested in trying an artisan bread in the Lessons section  on this site.
"Your First Loaf - A Primer for the New Baker" is a great starting point - explaining some of the basics of techniques. The lessons are intended to help folks understand more than just a list of ingredients, so that hopefully all new recipes can be looked at with a better understanding of how the breads will turn out.
