Hi Izzabella, and welcome. We're glad you found us and I think you'll be very happy you ended up here as well.

 

I'm a home cook too. I've been part of this community since 2000, and as a home cook I've been able to learn so much! I've also been able to share what I know with other home cooks, but also with the professionals. No one can know everything about everything, after all! We realize that and hope you'll share your unique knowledge here too. Maybe you have a special family recipe for an ethnic or regional dish, or for that particular recipe you're famous for. It's probably not in the curriculum in culinary school. Just as the professional can share their expert information on the whys and hows of yeast baking or food safety, you can usually find someone here with knowledge of that certain thing you need to know. What should you do with a jackfruit? No problem, we have members from southeast Asia who see them every day. Want to try a new recipe for chicken and rice? There's no shortage of options from all over the world! Our search tool makes it easy to pinpoint what you want.

 

What got you interested in cooking, Izzabella? Did someone inspire you, or did your palate spark your explorations? 

 

We look forward to seeing you here often. Welcome!

I have a question.. I have a recipe that calls for pretzels for a crust.. Can I use chocolate covered pretzels instead of regular ones ? If I do would the chocolate burn when baking the crust for ten minutes?? Help and thank you

Hello Izzabella! Welcome to Chef Talk.

 

No, I wouldn't use chocolate ones in place of the regular ones. You'll have a gooey mess, and the type of chocolate used in many of those types of pretzels isn't the kind that would behave nicely in the oven. 

 

Also, please post cooking questions in the cooking forums. smile.gif Let us know if you have questions about how the discussion forums are arranged, and how they work. We're happy to help!
