It's true, you can! And the best part is that once you get started, it gets easier. Don't be intimidated by recipes that sound complicated or yeast disaster stories ~ we've all had mishaps and we emerge better, wiser bakers from them. Stick with it and the rewards will be enormous; there's nothing like making homemade breads and other baked goods for your family, your friends, and yourself.
Over the course of this coming year, I'll be exploring some new recipes here ~ old breads that are artisan classics as well as newer breads that employ unconventional flours and techniques. In the meantime, I've gathered a few recipes to get you started on the path to oven love.
Remember, enjoyment is everything, so relax and "lean into" the process! Have fun. Wear an apron, or don't. Smile. Bread is on its way!
