When I get time, I like to cook and I'm always willing to try something new. Fortunately, my DH likes to cook as well, so he helps out quite a bit. We enjoy having friends over for suppers/cook-outs now that we have our own house! I got my DH a Green Egg smoker for Christmas, which he loves and seems to be using about every weekend! I have become addicted to this site and spend so much time (!) reading through recipes. Thus I have an ever-expandingto make list! I have a lot of cookbooks, but don't really use them as much since it's so much easier to come here and search by ingredient. I find it a challenge to have something in the fridge I need to use up, then find a dish to use it in. I will admit that I'm a cook who has to have a recipe--I add and take away based on our preferences (everything is better with fresh garlic and cheese!), but not much for making up original recipes.
