  Just thought I would say hello as I am new here. I retired about 6 months ago and with time to spare now. I figured I would try something I have always been interested in but have never done and that is baking. So I started I started out easy with cookies, graduating to some cakes and just finished my first Cheescake. I found that if you follow the recepie it really is pretty hard to mess things up. I have really enjoyed it and now sometimes wonder if I made the right career choice. Just kidding, I doubt that it would be nearly the fun if it were a job. Anyway, I just wanted to say I'm glad I've found this site and look forward to learning a lot more about baking here.

Hi, and welcome to this site.  You sound like my hubby....he loves sweets....and if I haven't baked in awhile, he says he will do it.....problem is......he disregards time and temperature.  Stick with it....when one bakes something that is REALLY GOOD!!....it is rewarding.  My specialty is cupcakes, and whenever there is a function that requires "a dish" to be donated, I'm always asked for cupcakes.  Hope you stay with this site.  You will find some amazing recipes.  Just be sure to note the time and temperature advice.

Hi Phil it's great to have someone new...only to pick their brain for recipes. 
I will be happy to take any recipe you have that contains peanut butter and or chocolate.  I also like cranberries, ginger and caramel so if you have any that may happen to contain any of those feel free to share.
All kidding aside welcome.  I do hope you enjoy the site and the people.
