Hello everyone, my user name is Validen and I am a 21-year-old amateur baker. I bake so I can provide quality food for my family at the fraction of the cost. It is a personal requirement that I know what ingredients are included in the meals I serve. Baking and cooking from home made enables me to have that knowledge as well as gives me the freedom to change the recipes to suit the families needs. I also look forward to using this comprehensive site to fill the daily-recommended requirements for whole grain intake using new bread recipes. I am very happy to be here and I look forward to expanding my horizons with my baking.
