Hello Brittany and welcome to Chef Talk. Lots of us are home cooks who learned from family- myself included. The professionals here are generous with their knowledge. While we are encouraged to read in their forums, we home cooks mustn't post there. But with 10+ years worth of information here, there's plenty to keep us busy here.
What do you like to cook and bake? Do you have any heritage recipes from your family? Are there any regional dishes or ingredients you like to use?
