It would be helpful if the OP would check in. We haven't heard from her since the original question.
Hi Sarah , Are you new to bread baking? Kyle
It's worth it. Bread baking awesome 😊

Find a simple white bread reccipe and make it over and over again. You will learn what the dough should feel like in order to achieve the results you want. For example a softer/stickier dough yields breads with more open texture. A firmer dough will yield a more dense loaf. Your hands will become smarter and your breads...
Is this what you're talking about?
