Hello, Sally! Welcome to Chef Talk. We hope you take some time to take a look around at all the great features of this site: blogs, photo gallery, cooking articles, and much more- oh yes, the discussion forums! Home cooks like you and I can learn so much from the professionals her- as well as from each other.
We seem to have a good number of IT people here. Some are doing as you are, others are moving from a culinary career to IT. Someone could get a thesis or dissertation out of that phenomonen, I'm sure.
What do you enjoy cooking? How did you learn what you know? Many of us learned from relatives, dorm mates or just by experimenting.
