Like everyone else during this crazy time, I have started to bake bread. I’ve baked bread before but it never really was my go-to baking project. I’ve baked challah for many Jewish holidays, made yeasted desserts, and even gone the cinnamon roll route. However, plain old bread never really was a priority.
