Love this site.  Thanks!
I have been baking as far back as I can remember.  
I am a California girl missing San Francisco Sourdough Bread :(
I am new to Sourdough, and love all of the information I have found on this site. 
I am working on getting my first Sourdough Starter (Carl's 1847) going (rather slowly, I think.....)

Hello... I have just found the joy of baking bread. I went on a trip to Alaska. I enjoyed some great sour dough bread there and found a starter I could buy and bring home. I decided to give it a try. So far, I've made two batches. They both came out pretty good but not the quality I enjoyed while in Alaska. I'll save the details for a post specifically about my bread at a later date. I just wanted to share what got me started. Now I'm hooked! My wife is asking about other breads already. I look forward to learning from all of you and hopefully contributing myself in some way.

First...what a cool site/forum. So glad it's here. 

I have been been baking for a while now. Sometimes very well and sometimes...well, baking is a little science and a little luck and sometimes it just doesn't line up right. Mostly though Ive done pretty well. 

Ive been baking and cooking as long as I can remember and started out helping my Granny.  I've been solo baking now and getting more "serious" about it for about 15 years.

I'm a new member here who has been baking for a long time on and off, and for the last two years, trying to perfect my naturally leavened artisan bread. I have lurked at this site for awhile, and just now created a login.

In my professional life, I am a music producer and I play keyboards in a Las Vegas show in a major downtown casino.
Prior to Vegas (12 years now), I lived in San Diego CA for 25 years.

I've dabbled in bread making over the years but have now entered a new phase of obsession.  I did a three hour course with Brasserie Bread a couple of weeks ago that was inspiring. Just waiting for my latest experiment (70% hydration white boule) to cool so I can eat it. Lovely day here.  It's 27 deg in my kitchen, 30 outside with blue sky and a gentle breeze. Perfect!
