  1. I haven’t baked for two months and I haven’t baked bread before, but like to try it. I do have many of these baking tools at home,  I just need to get the rest.

    I think I saw you link to a bread recipe. What kind of bread is it? I don’t eat any kind of bread. A little bit picky. Hopefully is the one I like. 

    Thanks for sharing. 

  2. Thank you for very interesting article. TO be fair I wasn’t baking to much in past, but when covid started it become my new hobby. Its fun and definitely healthier for family than buying cakes or cookies from shops. I do have most of the items you recommend, but baking mat is something new for me. Sounds as great idea and Im looking forward to test it in practice.

  3. Thanks for your article on baking tools that are available to the modern-day baker for their kitchen. Having recently had a friend of our’s marry, it was interesting to see what they had on their bridal list to purchase for their kitchen. Some couples are very fortunate to start out with a well equipped kitchen. Thanks for sharing this article.
