Why I want to be mentor in this category: I have a lot of experience with breadmaking, by hand and with the breadmachine.
What inspires me in this category: I love home made bread and seeing a good loaf of bread come out of the oven, it just does my heart good!
Experience: I have been making bread for my family, since I was 10 years old. I made bread by hand, until 1990 and I got my first bread machine.
Biggest Lesson Learned: Bread making depends a lot on the personal touch. The humidity and temperature has a lot to do with it.
Books, classes, teachers that have helped me: My mother got me started, then while she worked, I made the bread for the family. I didn't have a recipe, just went by feel. I baked all the bread, buns and even cinnamon rolls for the family all through high school. I am a mother, grandmother and a great grandmother, every one loves my homemade bread
I use both powdered buttermilk and lemon juice in almost all of my recipes.
