My name is Jennifer, so nice to finally meet you all.
Been prowling the corners for awhile now, and thought it was about time to introduce myself. I am a bread newbie, but have been baking for as long as I can remember: quick breads, pies, pastries. My dad just gave me a bit of his firm sourdough starter, so I am prowling again, this time for 'proper care and feeding of your new baby starter'.
