Do yourself a favor and take a look at the King Arthur Flour blog Baker's Banter. It features well-illustrated recipes and baking techniques. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/
One thing I wasn't aware of is that the company is an employee-owned concern. That explains the family vibe the company exudes. If you are disappointed with the way your baking is turning out, you might consider trying this brand.
My favorite aspect of this well-written blog is the descriptions of the inner workings of the King Arthur test kitchen. I'd love to take one of the classes they offer.
