My name is Jim… or you can call me “Bear”.
Bear was my callsign when I flew F-4’s and F-15E’s in the USAF.
- I like to cook and have recently been really focusing on my baking.
- I’m on a quest to perfect sourdough bread, croissants and pastries.
My intent is to share my love of baking and my journey to becoming a better baker.
Someday I’m going to not have a “job” and I will be able to devote much more time and attention to my baking than I currently am able to dedicate. When that time comes I’d like to possibly start a business. Until that time you’re welcome to come along on my journey of discovery. I’ll share my ups and downs as I go; both triumphs and those “Well, THAT was a learning experience!” moments!
Feel free to connect with me. I love to connect with folks that share my love of baking, that are learning and experimenting and that don’t mind sharing their experience(s).
My hope is that in a year or so I will have made new friends, learned how to be a better baker and brought smiles to those who I’ve had the privilege to walk this journey alongside.
