I hail from Houston, Tx. and ran upon this site searching for a recipe for Japanese melonpan. I have really enjoyed visiting this site and learning about techniques and recipes.
As for my salutation, I have been taking Japanese language courses and konbanwa means good evening. I heard one of my classmates being silly and yelling "konbanwa ya'll" and instantly loved it so now I say it all the time. Situation permitting that is. :o)
Other than baking bread and the Japanese language my other interests are anime, manga, fantasy/some sci-fi, rpg's (dice and paper), crochet, origami, boardgames, card games and a bunch of other stuff that slips my mind right now.
I'm looking forward to reading future posts!!
May your bread always rise!!
