Hey y'all, from South Carolina
Hey! My name is Katie and I am new to this site. Well, I have ended up here many times after googling for one thing or another, but I've finally registered. I guess that makes me a former lurker. Anyway, I am a stay-at-home mom, bookkeeper for our family business, consultant to the insurance company I used to work for, knitting blogger, and whatever else needs to be done. I have two kids, ages 3-1/2 and 2.
I have been baking for about 10 years--the bug started for me when I first got married and decided to make my own pizza dough. My pizza has come a long way since then (particularly since I found PR's Neo-neapolitan recipe), and I also now bake four loaves of sandwich bread a week for my family. Plus the various and sundry artisan style breads that I try from time to time. I baked Jason's Cocodrillo Ciabatta today and now have a new favorite rustic bread.
Anyway, that's me. I look forward to getting to know everyone here! (And as an aside, I am a lurking member of another rather well-known baking board, but sadly, that one isn't very friendly to those who aren't in the inner circle. I can already tell this place is different.)
