Helloo thar, I'm....well....an amateur cook. Probably something a little below that. I'm more experienced in the visual arts than the culinary arts, but I came here to put my creativity to work in the kitchen and gain a little insight on cooking. I'd also love if I could pick up a few recipes in the process. I live in the South and know very little about Southern cooking or any other cooking besides...well, American...and a little Chinese. I'm very well-schooled in teas and desserts and I've probably baked every kind of cookie known to mankind, haha. Nice to meet!
