I love making bread when I have the time. There’s nothing like having an afternoon to set aside to watch dough rise while reading a book or magazine. Normally something goes slightly awry with my bread though. The yeast doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do, the dough doesn’t proof like it should, I over […]
