Hello everyone! Just thought I'd drop in and say hi and that I just happened to stumble across this website when researching brownie recipes...lol!

I've been a home baker for many years, learning first from my mom, then learning from books, TV, and trial and error. I'm not a professional baker, (though people often tell me "you should open a bakery").....maybe some day I'll do that, who knows. (I would love to do that) But for now I'm just into perfecting my recipes, and/or trying to find what I consider the "perfect" recipe for this or that item. In the end I find baking a lot of fun and the researching recipes as a part of the fun itself. Ironically due to health issues, food sensitivities 98% of what I bake I can't eat anymore....but it's been healthier for me and in the end I still like to see other people enjoy a good piece of pie, cake, cookie or whatever it may be.

Anyways, just a brief intro....I hope to learn much from everyone here.

Hi, and welcome.
You're goin to find loads of ideas here. If you let us know what you cant eat, we'll prob give you some ideas.
I know what its like when you cant eat what you cook, but if you get such pleasure from feeding folk, that can be aaalmost as good eh?

Let me add my welcome to Bughut's! As Bughut said, you're likely to find others here who are also exploring the world of baking- for instance, yours truly. While you and I as home cooks can't post in the professionals' forums, we can read, browse and enjoy it all! We have a search tool you may find useful, as others have posted questions and/or recipes about gluten-free cooking, vegan recipes and other ways of cooking for alternate diets.

I'm new to baking (in relative terms) but have made some good progress tweaking favorite recipes and making them my own. My next big project will be to explore bread-making, bagels and challah in particular but any yeast products are in my sights.

We hope you visit often and participate, too! You can take part in the forums, but also you can create a blog and a photo gallery.

Welcome!

Hi Everyone!

Hi,

My name is Ally and I lost my sign in info so had to re-register. Nice to be back, I love this site. I am a catering manager but my passion is creating my own dishes at home for my family and friends.

I wanted to bend your ears on a question I am pondering. I am filling out an application for a new job and two of the questions are: What genre of food do you like cooking? The other is: What styles of cooking do you hate, and why? What is the difference between genre and styles? Is it a trick question? Am confused. :crazy:

Thanks for the welcome everyone! I'm already using the "search" feature and have learned a few new things already. And in time I will definitely get around to asking for tips and recipes for stuff I CAN eat as well. (considering I'm essentially a Vegan though baked goods are tough...but I'm learning and in the end, if others can enjoy it, and I can smell it, that's almost just as good...:))

Allyson, you'll need to post your query in a different forum. This is the Welcome Forum, where people post their introductions. You can try using the search tool to look for earlier discussions on your topic. Or you can start a new thread. I recommend you continue your search in the Culinary Schools / Culinary Students' forum or the Food and Cooking Questions and Discussion Forum.
Hi, Cookie! Why not start a new thread of your own to tell us about yourself? :bounce:
