Hello from snowy, cold Ohio!

I'm sitting here at home and thought I'd pop in and introduce myself. I'm 26 years old and I have just started baking! I haven't tried anything too outrageous, save for a basic wheat bread and some delicious rolls. I'm excited to be here and hope for lots of awesome pointers.

I too live in Northern part of Ohio and it is indeed cold this time of year.  I think I prefer it cold and snowy as long as it snows enough to keep it pretty white.  I bake on and off and since Hostess went out I think I have to bake some sandwich loaves now if I can find one that can match or I prefer to beat the Home Pride that used to be sold.  Good luck with all you try to bake and this is indeed a great place to find like minded kind folks to guide us on the path for the perfect loave whatever it may be.
