I am an accomplished cook and can do most meals without any problems. Sooo, I thought I would make bread, OK? Bought the new commercial Kitchen aid mixer and have made about four loaves, they didn't turn out very well.:confused: I am learning that bread is much more involved that I realized. Someone told me bread is more of an art than a recipe. Any ideas are welcomed and any great recipes would be tried and appreciated. I just learned that when they say use warm water to start the yeast, they mean warm, really gets it working. How do you know when to stop beating it with a bread hook, someone said you can do it too much. Another lady told me to not rely on the bread hook totally, but to get your hands into it also, it makes better bread. Any comments???? Thanks ahead of time.
