Hello Karenp, and welcome to Chef Talk. I'm a home cook myself and retired as well. What kinds of cooking and/or baking do you enjoy most? What are you hoping to learn and share here?
Chef Talk is an amazing place for just that. Our members are from all over the world, all ages, all levels of expertise. Feel free to explore the entire site. But please be aware that the professional forums are "read only" for home cooks like you and me. We can post in the general forums where everyone can, so choose one of those forums for your posts and an answer will be forthcoming from one of our tens of thousands of members.
We have cooking articles, cookbook and equipment reviews, photo galleries and more. The search tool will help you dig through 15 years worth of content here!
We hope you enjoy being part of the community, and that you visit often. Let us know if you have questions about the site.
