My best friend in the whole wide world introduced me to this site and her name on here is ang11002. Shes a really good cook and has some wonderful recipes. She is one of the best things that has ever come into my life and I love her. My favorite chefs on Food Network are Alton Brown, Giata, and Rachel Ray. I love cooking, and I am looking for new ideas. Im getting tired of eating the same ole stuff. My favorite cookbook is any one of Rachel Rays. Anyone with some good ideas please let me know.
