I've always enjoyed cooking (er, and eating!) When my husband and I were both working, being the young, lazy things that we are, we mostly ate fast food or frozen processed food. Needless to say, we both could do with a much healthier diet! That's where Recipezaar fits in. I am a huge Alton Brown/Good Eats fan. I am only a few courses away from a B.S. in Physics, so the science side of Good Eats really appeals to my inner nerd. I really admire Alton's commitment to keeping recipes as fresh and unprocessed as possible (within limits of practicality.) Plus the show is funny as hell. Those yeast puppets kill me every time! I am slowly but surely amassing all the essential kitchen gadgets I need. I have a fairly small kitchen, so I'm careful to only buy very useful workhorse-type items. Like 2 fondue pots that I use once a year... er? See my Amazon.com Listmania list of good value kitchen things -- based almost entirely off what I have myself. I never met a dessert I didn't like, but I'm trying to cut back sooooo... I try not to look at dessert recipes too often. :(
