Hi, my name is Annie and I live in Pittsburgh, PA. I have always loved to bake. Admittedly I am a novice. Baking and canning are beloved hobbies at the moment, I have a day job. I try a recipe, improvise and make it my own. I am slowly developing my own repertoire of tried and true recipes. I recently started a blog on blogger in which I post all of the recipes that I try to share them with my friends and family. It has been alot of fun! I also started canning last year and this will be my second year making and canning apple butter. I joined this forum to chat and network with some like minded people and to hopefully pick up a few tips, tricks and recipe ideas along the way.
