Be advised, in advance, that this site is addictive.

I ran across it in January, got hooked on baking - and now I bake at least every weekend and sometimes during the week if I remember to get my starters out.

You have been warned!!!

Welcome on board!

A week or so ago we had a conversation here about how long-time residents go about answering questions. As a result of that, I would offer this thought: Don't hesitate to ask any question no matter how simple or basic (I used to have a lot of questions on how to stir flour for example). When you ask though it would be helpful if you would indicate the type of answer you want: simple, intermediate, or detailed. That way the answerer can tailor the answer to your needs.

what exit?  :/  from a former Pocono boy.

"There's no crying in Football, and no dumb questions at TFL"  I forgot who said that originally but I like it.

    Hi and welcome Koloatree.  Are you from New Jersey, for real?  I live in Monroe Twp.  and have only seen addresses from all over the world, West coast, South, etc.  This is great if I actually have an almost neighbor who bakes bread.            Ruth Redburn
