Only if you enjoy it (in my book).

Though I guess it might get a little tiresome for all involved if you post this everyday, even if you do enjoy it. ;-)

Oops! Was so busy yesterday I forgot to check in. I made a 3# batch of hamburger and hot dog buns and two loaves of NYT bread, one with flax seeds and one plain. Anymore I just make two NYT's at a time because they are so simple to do. The flax seeded loaf makes delicious toast with a nice flavor. I added 1/4 cup of flax seeds. Here's what it looks like before & after baking:






Add more or less as you prefer, but this looks and taste about right. FYI NEWBIES: Add additional ingredients to your dry mix, not after the 12 hour rise. At that point it's too late and "almost" impossible to work with.

Could've baked just a few more min, other than that, great!
suziquzie,

First, congrats on your first NYT. Now you're playing with the big kids! Second, whenever I try a different style of bread for the first time, I use my digital thermometer to verify that the bread has reached at least 200 F. before taking it out of the oven. This also validates the time/temp stated in the new recipe, which I then update (if necessary) on my recipe sheet for future reference. After that I know I can just follow the recipe without over or under baking. Do you have a digital thermometer? If not, you may consider getting one. I use mine all the time for all kinds of cooking.

Joe

Okay, I am really becoming a true DC'er!! Today I made my first NYT bread, and while I know a couple of things I didn't to quite right, it truly has potential and I know I will be trying it more often. Joe, I am a firm believer in the benefits of flax and will be trying your flaxseed version soon.

Secondly, I sent DH to the store to pick up some on-sale cake mixes to try out the cake mix cookies. I hope to experiment over the next couple of days and will report back the results! (just please don't tell my customers I am doing ANYTHING with cake mixes!).

Joe, I totally agree - I don't know where I would be without mine!

I have two loaves of NYT in the oven; one plain and one with a medley of Italian seasonings, dried chives, dried chopped onions, dried chopped garlic and a bit of cayenne red pepper. OMG, does it ever smell great in my kitchen this morning.

Joe, what do you bake your bread in? I think that was part of my problem yesterday.
