About measuring...

Hi everyone!!! Happy December to you all! I believe everything is fine with your side. Today, I want to talk about one disadvantage with my recipes, I hope you don't mind:)
Many people ask me, why I don't give exact measurements for the flour to my dough-related dishes. I agree that it is my biggest flaw. I never measured the amount of the flour, as I always concentrate on the softness or hardness of the dough. I add flour gradually, more at the beginning, less at the end, mixing and kneading it each time with my hands. In the beginning, the dough is very runny but gets thicker each time as I add flour. Usually, I make a medium-hard dough, which means it is not sticky, not too soft, and not too hard. You can easily press your finger in it, but it's not sticky. I understand it is hard for beginners, but by the time you will see it, you will also stop measuring the flour:)

In the meantime, I will try to do the measuring for my upcoming recipes. 

Thank you for your support and patience!
