Howdy, Cookies4u! Always glad to welcome another Texan.
You'll want to hang out in the pastry and baking forums, I'm sure. Please know that the Professional Pastry forum is, for home cooks like you and me, considered "read only". However, you are encouraged to contribute to the General Pastry and Baking forum. Either way, you can pick up a ton of great ideas. Don't miss the photo gallery! A lot of beautiful work is on display there.
What are your favorite recipes? Do you have family favorites, handed down from earlier family members?
I hope we see you here often. Welcome!
