STARTING TOMORROW: MY OWN bread baking challenge.






MY CONFESSION:Tomorrow it is my day off and I am very exited to start my bread baking challenge.

Nicole, from "pinch my salt" blog, started this challenge and many people around the world follow these book recipes.

We all follow this basic bread baking recipes and we speak about in our blogs, our success, or things to remember next time.


For the first bread in this challenge that I will start tomorrow, I chose
bread #7: CIABATTA BREAD

 
-->
Ciabatta bread it is very special to me. It remind me the time as a little girl, this is the bread we use to eat, my grandmother baking in the kitchen and i remember as a picture hooked in time, as I was singing... I was on a wooden horse and my grandmother baking... the perfect picture...
I didn't know how it is called but seeing it in this book  that we follow the recipe  it is exactly as I remember.... crunchy and big holes in it!
WE came in this blessed country, 22 years ago from Romania, that time a very harsh communist country ( not any more, thanks god!). This is because, my father was born here and they chose to go back to Romania (Transylvania, that they love) when my father was 10. My father and my mother came here when he was 70, and then my grand-mother came and then, me, my brother with all our children and family. We live in Boston area, (Quincy_) and my brother, his family, my parents, Nashua NH.

Bread and polenta is very important in all our day food. I am baking bread since I came here and this is the first time I follow some expert advice, so I am very excited.
I have my and tomorrow I will start my bread. I hope it will a great experience......
