Bread, Glorious Bread!

I took photo's of our second loaf (you pre-mix enough dough for four loaves). Here it is resting on the pizza peel.
My largest problem in the past is not having a good idea of how hot/cold my oven runs. As it stands, it runs a little cool.
Look at that beautiful crust . . .
But what does the bread look like?Not the dense mess I was making before! This is really just wonderful stuff. The crust is so nice and chewy and the inside is so nice and springy.

The bread is about the size you would get at a restaurant. The website for the book mentions that if you go larger, the crust will be very dark and the center will be very difficult to cook and it will be doughy.

So, the next time you invite us to dinner, you just might get a nice loaf of bread.

Goal: Find a great sandwich bread recipe. There's one in the book. I'll have to try it.
