Then go get this book.
I need to start taking notes when I add cookbooks to my amazon.com shopping cart, because I don't know from whose blog I learned of this book, but I thank you (if you know who you are, let me know!)
I spent most of my free time this past weekend with my nose in this book, and I'm smitten. The weather outside was fantastic, but I didn't care. You'd think I could actually smell the wonderful baked goods! I enjoyed the stories behind each recipe, Leslie really pulls you in and leaves you feeling like you could make her lovely breads at home. I'm only half-way through it, so I should be able to spend the next few days finishing it up.
I love to bake, but I don't have a whole lot of practice with breads, even more daunting to me are yeasty breads. I think I'll start on the easier of the breads and work my way up to the ones requiring starter (even though I want to go the starter-route first, as I like the idea of having a new pet!)
If you have this book, let me know what you think!
