I loved her story about someone who said "do people really pay you to teach them how to make bread? Can they not follow a recipe?" Since I grew up with a non-baking Mom, I think it might be a lot like making art - anyone can do it and read a bunch of book(s), but not really "get it" until a teacher takes you by the hand and guides you forward. Then it's practice, practice, practice!

Enjoy, life is joy we make one "bite" at a time, Johnna
p.s. my Mom was an awesome cook - always trying new things and making every day a bit of an adventure. She took a bread baking class later in life which is what inspired me to give it a try.
