I love collecting cookbooks and even more, I love reading them in my early morning quiet time with a good cup of tea. My food tastes have certainly expanded over the years, due in large part to this site and all of the fantastic recipes submitted by chefs from all over the world. What I love best is getting to know these chefs through the many tag games and activities going on each month. Although these members may be thousands of miles away or even in a foreign country, it feels as though they are right next door -- ready to share a kind thought, a little humor and of course, a great recipe idea. I love to invite friends over or go to potlucks at my Church where I can showcase a new recipe that I found -- my friends actually look forward to trying these new recipes as much as I enjoy making them.
