Hello, my name is Ron. I'm brand new here although I've surfed your posts and articles many times. I have been impressed by the wealth of knowledge and the success of the members. It's really inspiring.
I've baked a few things in my life but pretty much have stuck to things I like to eat. Nothing fancy, a couple of cookies, some muffins and a couple of breads. I have spent the last several months working on artisan style sourdough and have been fairly happy with my results. I'm now trying to expand my repertoire.
My hope is to become a better baker. I feel that this is the place that can help me do that and also a place where I can share what I learn and have learned.
I've never joined a forum or group on so this is all pretty new to me. I probably won't say much because there are so many here who know so much more than I do but I will chime in if I feel I have something of value to say.
I have recently been offered the opportunity to bake some breads for my "brother-in laws" small sandwich shop. I'm jazzed and a bit nervous at the same time. I welcome all suggestions because I'm totally in the "experiment with every recipe I find" mode.
That's pretty much my story. I thank you for letting me join your esteemed group.
