There was a time when baking was very intimidating to me. I have somehow gained a little more interest here lately and have been really branching out. Not saying I’m really good at it now, mind you.
Not by any means.
But, for some reason, bread especially, has always been intimidating. I think it’s because of those damn bread machines – which made me think Ok, obviously you can’t just make bread in the oven, it must be too hard. That and I’ve been too lazy to look into it on a deeper level until now.
A couple of years ago I perfected my pizza crust, which was the beginning of my baking. But, for some reason I still felt limited.
See… I don’t like exact measuring, weighing, crap like that. That’s not fun to me. If I can’t throw in this or that whenever I want to just to see what happens it takes the joy out of the whole thing for me. That all being said, at some point I began to feel a little more adventurous.
Maybe the baking gods gave me a safe word?
50 Shades of Bread?
Did I seriously just say that.
