Greetings From Oregon - or - My First Post

Hello All!

I've been a big fan of 'The Fresh Loaf' for a long time now, coming here often to look up answers to my many baking questions, never disappointed with the information I find.  I taught myself to bake about two years ago, and without really having somebody to show me the ropes in person, this site proved a worthy surrogate.  So anyway, yeah, I just want to say thanks to everybody who had a hand in fostering this pleasantly debilitating obsession with bread. You don't know who you are, but your advice has been much appreciated.  Thanks!


Jalapeno Cheddar Sourdough

This is my Jalapeno Cheddar Sourdough.  I've posted the recipe on my blog, The Bread Defender, if anybody cares to check it out.
