Hello fellow "Cookies"

Greetings to all! This looks like a wonderful forum to join! By way of introduction, though I'm currently starting up an unrelated biz from home, I've worked in the food biz for more than 25 years. I've run bakeries, delis, cut meat, catered, and restaurant cooking. I hope to contribute some here, and hope to learn more. You are never too old to learn a few things, and I LOVE to cook.

Gotta warn you though... SO and I recently moved his elderly parents in with us, so I have to share my kitchen (but NOT my toys) with my MIL. Two women in one (home) kitchen is never good.

http://That's a noble thing you and S/O have done. At least you don't have to share your toys as well.
Enjoy yourself here.

Though I haven't vented as of yet, the thread is under the "Off Topic, Jokes..." forum.

Bienvenue, Katalyst. The "Venting" thread rises to the top of the Forum list every few days (or sometimes hours). It's a great way to blow off what's bothering you.

Thanks MB.... just may have to vent shortly. Need to cool down first so I don't get tossed out of here.
