Hello from Raleigh, NC

Just wanted to send out a hello to everyone. I'm a newbie here and thought it would be best to get my name out in the intro before I start posting elsewhere. I love cooking and baking and have no training. I have made cakes, cookies, kuchens and breadsticks and some basic breads. My next goal is to learn how to make better breads. I would like to, at some point, be able to make all of the breads for my husband and me. I'd also love to go the next step to artisan breads.... Mmmmm. I might have already tried this and failed miserably (with sourdough) so as I make my rounds on the boards, I'll be looking for all of your tips and tricks.

That's it for now!

Always great to see a fellow NC'er join.  I'm your neighbor in Summerfield, just north of Greensboro.  You'll love this site, these folks are soooo talented.

Hello and welcome!   I'm your neighbor in Raleigh.  If you get hooked on making your own bread, you'll always crave home-made bread.  You've been warned.  I have made all of our bread for more years than I can remember, and will not willingly go back to the store-bought stuff.  When you are ready to make sourdough bread, drop me a line and I'll give you some starter.
