King Arthur Flour has a fantastic scratch-baking blog, a boon to anyone trying to eat more locally -- which pretty much requires the willingness and ability to cook from scratch. Their recipes are extensively tested, and as a (former) non-baker, I can attest to their excellence. Each online recipe page also includes a link to a chat window where you can ask questions in real-time from their experts. Well worth a visit.
