Hello all;

My name is Kevin. My wife and I live in East-Central Illinois. However, I'm sure you are wondering about the user name. We love hiking the Great Smoky Mountains. The first forum I joined was about the GSMs. 'SmokyMtnHiker' is my user name I used with that forum and now I use it for all forums I join; less user names to remember :-)

Hi, Fresh Loaf Bakers,

I've been lurking here for a while, and I love the site. I've been a casual baker for years and I seem to have some talent for pastries, but like many, my yeast breads have left something to be desired. Thanks to the generous, detailed lessons and advice I've learned here, they are definitely improving. Yesterday, I tried txfarmer's recipe for New Orleans Poor Boy Bread, and it blew me away - so much that I finally decided to stop lurking and get involved.
