I am a 60 something retired ins. adjuster who has been intrigued with cooking/baking since teens. After retiring from ins. acquired position as bakery/deli mgr in small convenience store/gas stn. besides normal menu, devised a few of my own recipes that were well appreciated by clientel, especially the general laborers who built up big appetites. Now, legally retired, indulge in home cooking/baking for family/friends. Fall/winter recipes are my favorites as they are warm and flavorful, usually. love recipes from cooking channel, food network, delish, the chew,just in a pinch, joy of baking, etc. Just an all around novice cook/baker.
