I love the idea of baking bread, but I have to admit that I'm more in love with the idea than with the execution. Bread making (not the kind you do in a bread machine) takes a great deal of patience, time, some manhandling, and a pinch of luck. I found a recipe for whole wheat pita (aha! I kept the recipe source this time) that looked so simple and so divine.
Now, you see how fluffy and light those pitas look? Beautiful. Like soft, pillows of wheat goodness.
Now check out mine:
Yes, I followed the same recipe. Stop laughing. No, really - stop it.
Mine look like flat, brown hockey pucks. And they tasted like cardboard.
Epic fail. Zero ladles.
