Making Bread at Home

Let's Dish: Do You Make Your Own Bread?

When it comes to bread making, it seems that most people like to leave it to the experts. While I see the logic in this (I mean, I will never come close to the perfect crusty loaves that come out of Tartine's kitchen), I happen to like a challenge, so the art of making bread kind of intrigues me. There is something really satisfying about being able to transform yeast, flour, and water into something that is loved by so many. Now I'm wondering. Do you make your own bread? If so, what kind do you like to make?

Last year I made several of my own breads! Some of my favorite were homemade naan and pesto potato bread! I might have to start baking bread again....

 @Susannah Chen Well, it becomes dry, hard, and stale — kind of like how Acme bread really isn't good the next day. I've found that next day bread becomes perfect for French toast or croutons.

 @Anna Monette Roberts It goes bad after a day? I didn't know that!

 @Susannah Chen It's a lot of work to make homemade bread . . . plus it goes bad after a day :( But for parties and special occasions, nothing is better than a homemade baguette or a no-knead loaf of bread.

I'm embarrassed to say that I honestly don't make my own bread — the closest I've come is with homemade pizza dough — I'm still working on mustering up the courage! Perhaps I'll start with something incredibly simple, like a flatbread.
