I'm truthfully curious to see when I actually joined this site. I to register and found that someone took my desired sign in name. Turned out to be me. Or I'm posting under some other member's name who happened to have my password.
Anyways, I've always enjoyed cooking, but really loved baking. My girlfriend at the time (now my financé) and I both loved desserts and I loved to make them. After months of her feeling awful after eating most everything, we found out she had Celiac's and everything with gluten went out the window. I never realized how much had wheat in it... We avoided desserts for a long time and I've taken more to my cooking side. Her misfortune ignited an excitement in cooking, in creativity. I love the challenge of figuring out how to make things that typically have wheat suitable for a gluten free diet. I now find far more pleasure in a well cooked and presented meal over a nice piece of pie. (I won't turn down a nice piece of pie, though)
Well that was a long, drawn out way for me to just say "Hello!"
