Hi everyone !
I'm new here and am excited to get to know everyone and learn from everyone :).
A little background on me: I started baking at a young age because my mom loved baking. After bouncing from job to job just trying to find something that made me happy, and made me want to go to work everyday.
I then figured out that baking was something I loved doing. I went to Culinary school for a short period of time and got a certificate, but decided to look else where for training. I worked in a small bakery that made wedding cakes (lol, so stressful delivering those suckers:crazy:! lol, even more stressful handling and helping make them) I loved it, but decided that it wasn't for me. I did however learn that I loved working with chocolate while I was there.
My husband is in the army and will be deploying to Iraq at the end of this year for 15 months. So pretty much up until the beginning of December, I cleared my schedule for him to spend as much time as possible with eachother. :)
Anyhoo, thats about it lately.

Aloha, Kelz! Thank you for your introduction. Your path to pastry and chocolate work sounds familiar. Many people enjoyed cooking and baking when they were kids at home, but didn't consider it as professional work. (I have my suspicions about why that is- cooking and baking were "women's work", so it wasn't considered.)

Good luck with your adventures into the world of chocolate! If you explore the board you'll find many threads about working with chocolate, as well as photos of people's chocolate work in the photo forum. We hope you enjoy all of the material here.

Please thank your husband for his service.

We'll look forward to seeing you here to read and participate often! Welcome,
