New to the forum, well.. new to cooking!
Well new to cooking well at least. I caught the bug and now I'm looking all over the web for new recipes to try. My latest attempts have been pumpkin pie and roasting peanuts. The peanuts came out kinda eh.. but the pie was great!

Looking forward to learning lots of new things from this forum :)
