Hey there - newbie here!

Hi, all!!

Let me introduce myself.

My name is Cary, and I live in north central Ohio. I'm a single (divorced) mom of 4 kids, 3 of them teenagers!

I'm currently enrolled in a culinary apprenticeship program, and am finally living my dream of cooking for a living!!! I'm 42, and have ALWAYS wanted to - but everyone told me I had to be "practical" when I graduated, so I have sat behind a desk for most of the last 24 years. When my desk job left, and I couldn't find another - I enrolled in classes!!

I've always loved to cook and bake, and I've a huge recipe and cookbook collection, both hardcopy and on my harddrive. I love to experiment, and the kitchen is my favorite room in the house!!

I look forward to being active here - when I am not working, which is rare. I'm working 4 jobs right now, only one full time. I'm lucky enough to be cooking, but it's really not enough money.

Nice meeting everyone!

Thanks!

Thanks, Andy!!

I browsed the site only for a few minutes... but it's great to see all the experience here!!

One goal of mine is to be a CEC - how awesome you've achieved that!

I hope to be able to contribute, but I feel I'll be listening more than talking for awhile....

Cary
