Exclamation Lilanne

Hi everyone,
I am a retired family and consumer science teacher (alias home economist). I miss the talk and the problems found in cooking and thought I would check in here. My daughter-in-law is a caterer and a teacher of short courses at our local tech school and had a problem she needed answering and that is how I came across this site.
She needed answers to solving home milled flour problems in baking bread. I really learned things that I had not heard of as I helped her. We found that her student had not been grinding her flour fine enough or adding lecithin to help it bind and rise. She brought home a sample of biscuit and muffin that they had made from the fresh flour and it was marvelously fresh and light. Now we are hoping to buy a mill together and produce flour for our extended families.
I hope this will eventually fit into my S. Beach diet.
PS my grandson is 5 months old and lives in southern FL (13 hours away)

Welcome to the site. It looks like you could teach us a few things as well as find what interests you. Your venture sounds interesting.

Hi, Lilanne! Seems like we all have our share of cooking problems and questions around here. You can come out of retirement!
Practice random acts of kindness.

welcome to your first day back at school lilanne.

hope we can help teach the teacher, and i'm looking forward to your knowledgeable posts.

hey, maybe elfie and middie can sign up for one of your daughter's courses??
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

Happy day!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome to DC. I'm still fairly new to message boards so help me out with the lingo. I was wondering about the executive and master chefs on the site. Now I know you've just been extra busy buddies on the web. It still amazes me that we can communicate with all people around the world on the computer.

Anyone have any clues as to how to put the joy back into cooking as the family shrinks in the empty nest without getting fat and without spending a fortune on waste! I've been looking into freezer cooking for one month because I lack menu planning discipline and eat out too much.
