Hello from Staten Island

Hi all!  Just wanted to thank Floyd and all the contributors for a great website!  I just started baking bread...two weeks ago...and everything I have learned so far has been found over the internet.  The Fresh Loaf is a treasure trove for sure!

You will love this site for all the help and information here. The people are really great and Floyd is a gem for creating this space, I think he kind of sets the tone for the site and you really never see the nasty stuff that goes on on other sites. I too only started baking breads a little while ago and get lots of info and hints here. Good luck in your baking. mattie
