This morning I see there are 3 members logged in and 46 guests. I just want to say that I too was a lurker not so long ago and in a short time I have learned enough to consider myself a pretty good home baker. This is a friendly community that encourages new bakers and those who only have an interest and no experience. We welcome the chance to help you get started learning one of the most ancient trades known to mankind. In no time at all you will be amazing your friends and family with great breads.
