Hi, Mona. Welcome to the U.S.A. and to DC. Both are great places.
You will be able to easily "feed" your love for cooking and baking here. Take a couple of minutes and read some of the forums. There's lots to enjoy!
Hope you are enjoying Atlanta, too. Our youngest son and his family live there. Be sure to see the aquarium.
