I LOVE Food~ (I guess don't we all, that's why we're here)I have lots of great recipes under my belt some of my own some stolen, I plan on sharing as much as I can (some of them are just in my head and hard to transcribe into cups, tablespoons...etc) whenever I can find the time, which is at a premium for me. I'm very luck to live within minutes of a major metropolitan area so that ethnic foods are readily available to me. I have two wonderful children whom I've raised to TRY everything before deciding to like it or not... (and try again a few years later just in case!) I just put a new kitchen in my house and have found that a black cooktop is such a pain to keep clean for someone who REALLY cooks, but having a gas stove is such a dream! Admittedly we order our fair share of pizza's because I don't always plan the week and sometimes just dont' have the time to cook between work, and running the kids around. But cooking on the weekends is my pleasure and very relaxing for me. This is such a great place to find unique recipes and foods I would never before have thought to make, but after reading reviews am prompted to try~ Thanks to all the contributors.
