Good start! The first loaves are always the most tentative, but after a while you won't even think about it Try reading up on cold rising in a fridge over night. Good for "sourdoughs", but also it helps eliminate the tricky coordinating between oven temps and rising times. It is all I do anymore. When the oven is ready, I just pop the cold loaves in (they also slash better with cold dough). Some have debated whether cold dough will spring as well as fresh dough, and I was a doubter for a while, but now think there is little difference. there is only 20-30 degrees difference anyway and it goes into a 500* oven! The only problem is clearing out room in the fridge
