hello everyone,

how are u guys, hope u all are fine and still cooking!...
well i am not much of a cook, i mostly try my hand in baking ....
i am 25 year old, live in pakistan, karachi. The problem here is finding the right stuff for baking, cause in baking u need top of theline ingrediants! u have noo idea how much time and effort it took me to get a simple cake recipe working !
so u see at first i had this curse i could not make cookies, everytime i would try they would turn out to be muffins or cupcakes or something in middle, so i was finally banned from making cookies...
then i found this french cuisine site with pictures for every steps... i don't know i felt like giving a try and whoola finally there they were nice cookies.... oh i could have kissed my self! now i am off to baking other stuff beside desserts , like crossiants, and bagel..but my major problem in this area is YEAST .. i wish i could do something to those single celled organism... they just won't rise in my crossiants and pizza dough !
so now my arch nemesis is this yeast ...
i have to deat those little buggers , wish me luck fellow comarades! u know i need it !

Hello Sam and welcome!! Yes baking is, as I am also learning myself, can be a tricky matter and very often takes some (or lots of) trials and errors. Don't be discouraged, as you found out in your cookie making, when there is a will, you always find a way!! And this is a great place to find your way, new ideas and friendship.
We would also be interested in some of your Pakistani specialties!!
