And speaking of bread....

After my latest bread-making disaster, I have decided to really learn to bake bread. I have spent the last few years winging it with the help of my bread-maker and occasional consults with Nana, but I have never really figured out the mechanics of how it all works well enough to save a loaf that has the potential to be saved, or to know how to tweak a recipe to suit my needs. So, I am going to start at the beginning and work my way through. Unfortunately, I don't own Peter Reinhart's book as I borrow a copy from the library on an as needed basis. So I am going to start with the Bernard Clayton book, which I do own, and see how it goes.

Tomorrow, the first loaf.
