Hello from Connecticut!

Hello all,

I've been lurking on the site for awhile, and I thought it was finally time to join in. While I wouldn't say I'm a total noob to bread baking, I'm definitely an amateur who is always looking for something new to learn about bread baking. Currently I'm working on perfecting my sourdough. I created my sourdough starter four years ago, and it's survived moving three different places. I look forward to learning from everyone!

I tried to insert pictures of the walnut cheese sourdough loaf I baked today, but I couldn't quite figure it out.  But here are links to flickr.

The recipe is from the Bread Bakers Apprentice.

I just moved from Avon to Manchester. Trumbull is in the New Haven area right?

I just recently figured out how to make the slashing look right from the videos here on the site.
