All of the recent discussions on threads regarding bread have made me want to try just one more time to make a decent loaf of bread. I am yeast-impaired. In other words, I make awesome zucchini and banana breads but have never been able to make a yeast-based bread come out right. I even bought a bread machine, and that disappointed as well. I broke down today and bought some active dry yeast. I will take one more shot tomorrow. I would like to make a nice loaf of crusty Italian. Any advice or good recipes? I don't really have a warm spot to let the dough rise. Will that be a problem? Thanks for the help.
