Hi from the Far North - Cairns, Australia

Hi, my name is Annette and I am a stay at home mum to a 13mth old boy named Tobias. I am looking forward to checking out the forum as I am wanting to begin to make everything from scratch much more that buying packet stuff.

Hi, Annette. Welcome to DC. There's no doubt you will get plenty of help finding "scratch" dishes for you and your family. Stick around and become part of our friendly family. We're glad you've found us.

Hello and welcome to DC. I assume your from England, or maybe Australia? Lots of great info on here, so just explore each of the forums and ask questions.

Hi, Nette, where in the "far north" are you. Cooking from scratch is very satisfying. I am presently making my own sour dough starter, without any yeast. But when I had small children, I was too busy to go quite that far.

So, far north means warm to you! I am in Northern Ontario, Canada, which is a far cry in temperature.

Hi Annette and welcome to DC! I'm in Perth, WA. There are a few other Australians and New Zealanders on here as well. You will find lots of info here but you will find you never have any time to make anything because you will become so absorbed in all the posts to read and respond to!!! LOL
