Morning everyone! I just stumbled across this site, and have spent the last two hours browsing threads and decided that I really need to get in on this action. I'm in the military, currently stationed in coastal North Carolina, and love to cook at home for my family and friends. I've been cooking since I was ten, so for close to 20 years now. Food is far and away one of my favorite things (good thing about the military though, it forces you to work those calories off!), and I love experimenting and especially enjoy cooking things and using techniques that are new to me. I probably won't have a whole lot to contribute as there are so many incredibly knowledgeable people on here that know MUCH more than me, but I certainly look forward to learning from all of you!
