This year I'm going to improve my baking. I'm going to bake bread once a week. Any way you slice it, I won't be loafing around this year. I kneaded to make a resolution.
This means you will see a lot of pictures of bread. I was inspired by Sara who said she was looking forward to reading about what I'm making. I think this means she'll be getting a loaf of bread the next time I see her.
I started with my favorite bread to eat: challah.
Challah turned out to be much easier to make than I thought it would be. I do need to work on evenly braiding (it slipped a bit to one side). I started with the America's Test Kitchen recipe. I think I'll try the Smitten Kitchen recipe the next time I make challah, as it has a variation that involves raisins.
I am looking for recipes to try, so if you have a favorite bread recipe please let me know. If it turns out to be a favorite you might just get a loaf from me.
