Bread Baking Babes 3rd Year Anniversary!

This month marks the third year anniversary of the Bread Baking Babes. Wow, that's a lot of great bread.
We thought it would be lovely to put together a retrospective of all the breads we have baked over the last three years.
It is always amazing, the diversity of bread. So many variations on one theme.

“Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts.”
James Beard (1903-1985)

Let us count the breads we baked;
