I am one of the early members of Zaar joining in October 2001. It was instantly my favorite site even though there were only about 5000 recipes. Back then the original owners Troy and Gay ran the site and they had a lot of interaction with the members. I miss them. Through the years it still remains to this day my favorite go to site and the one that I send all of my friends and family to when they need anything. I recently went back to school and graduated with my degree in Culinary Science from Aii-KC. I'm now working on my bachelor's there for restaurant management. I hope to open my own restaurant in a few years.
