I'm a graphic designer and I feel cooking and baking are an expression of my creativity. I prefer starting with quality ingredients and I look for recipes that have a little something special about them. I'm not a big fan of a can of this, a can of that kind of recipe. I think the extra effort is worth it. But sometimes... a can of this and a can of that is just what the people want. (Green Bean Casserole!) I've been a member for years and love reading the reviews to form my own opinion.
