Question asked “What do you remember about bread or bread baking”.

We always have pizza on a Saturday night and about 15 years ago I decided to try and make them myself. That got me making bread dough, so a couple of years ago I started making my own bread.  i enjoy making it, it's such a lovely thing to do.  I tend to make simple bread and rolls.  I find it's quite therapeutic, when you've had a hard day you can work out your stresses on a piece of bread, it's fantastic.
