This post is entirely for your amusement. I found that I had taken photos of the worst bread fail - the craggy mountain bread. I didn't think to take photos of the dripping bread, but this one looks worse at least. And the bottom: We had to cut out the paddle. So not only did … Continue reading Bread Fail

Armed with fresh yeast and a cast iron bread pan, I tried again. It rose very nicely! I overcooked it by just a few minutes, so the top started … Continue reading I Mades a Bread!
I Made Bread!
