Hi from northern New Mexico (USA)
I'm originally from Louisiana (Cajun French); but I've lived happily for about 35 years in northern New Mexico. I'm a single man. And cooking's been a passion my whole life. I love baking. I'm recently, very happily, retired into Social Security poverty; so it is inevitable that I cook and bake for both sanity and budget stretching. Of course, I love fresh baked bread. So I'm finding myself baking fresh bread about 3 times a week, depending upon the phase of the moon and the state of my own gumption ;) But that's the average production.
What a fabulous site! Thank you all for your efforts. I plan to steal ideas from all of you. I am shameless.
My interests will, of course, range throughout all of the "gourmet" and other boutique and vanity baking processes. I love to cook. But my primary interests will be what I call "Peasant Cooking". Poor folks, like myself, have always used available, affordable, materials and methods for survival and good food
I am grateful you are here.
