About this Cook
I'm a retired merchant seaman.I held license chief engineer steam and motor any H.P.and operated tankers running all over the globe 34 years.Retired since July '96.My wife and I both enjoy traveling.I have a couple motorcycles and with one of them we pull a trailer to carry camping gear and other things needed on the longer trips.Gone from home about 3 months per year.August we rode the Rocky mountains.Rode up to top of Mount Evans and Pikes Peak while touring the west for 27 days.I enjoy making bread.I like to cook and have become an OK cook but by no means am I expert.Making bread seems almost like a magic trick to me.I'm only now learning/reading,baking bread the last 5 or 6 weeks.I seldom actually eat the bread I bake because I follow a very low carb lifestyle.I do endulge occasionally however and it's my favorite treat.
My favorite things to cook

Rye Beer Bread
A really great formula.I have made this beer rye several times and all here enjoy the bread.A stiff dough that seems it needs more liquid at first but is really just right after kneading a bit.

Braided Egg Bread
Excellent and easier than I'd thought it would be.A very light moist and great tasting bread which is a little bit sweet but not overly so.I'll make this again.
