YES. We understand. And the older you are the slower you will heal. I will be extra careful for sure. Not having mobility is awful.
AND we do not realize it...until we experience it. Aria
Absolutely! Some of the kids I worked with at the time didn't get it. I told a couple of them that I would love to trade them for a week, so their young bodies could heal my hand faster. One young man said he would do that.

I once told him that if I'd had a son who had turned out like him, I'd have been very pleased. Bless his heart, he said to me, "Sally, that means a lot to me."

What an AWESOME thread! Thank you for editing and putting in the links for the recipes! What a fantastic thing! Such community building!

While my mom's baking was limited (usually modifying box brands to become more amazing, such as Bisquick biscuits), I took an interest in baking some time ago. First attempt at pie dough was a massive failure because I didn't know the butter had to be cold. Years later, I put the fear aside when one of the first baking shows on the then infancy of TV Food Network showed me I *could* indeed do it. Nick Malgieri's _Baker's Dozen_ show demystified the process for me, and off I went. Gosh, I just did the math in my head and it was at least 25 years ago. ANYHOW, bread was my next conquest but sourdough remained elusive for quite some time, honestly until 2018/2019. Christmas Day in 2018 provided the crock and starter, and soon after it was off to the races. Once I got the discard thing down and the pattern of feeding versus fridge time, and using a dutch oven for the baking, it became second nature, and I love it. I feel like it's sort of a meditative practice in many ways, and I'm usually making 3-4 loaves a week both for our family and some dear friends that need a little extra TLC.

King Arthur Baking has been such a great source of recipes - and we sure have loved the deep dish pizza dough recipe (2020 recipe of the year). But I must say, getting special recipes that have been passed down in families is such a precious thing! I love it.

Thank you again for this fantastic thread!

Welcome!

Baking is a process that can go on over many years.

Sourdough is amazing!
