Over the past 3 years, I have really begun to enjoy cooking - I still blame BF - he is a great cook and I needed to get my act together!! I enjoy all of the recipes and reviews with great ideas on this site. It makes it so much easier to try new things and increase my confidence and skill level. Baking is my favourite thing right now - love making cookies, muffins and desserts. Also enjoy one dish meals - so much less stress than trying to time everything just right (not to mention less cleanup:) ) Beyond Recipezaar I love the Company's Coming cookbooks - especially the Timeless Classics one. Cooking just like Mom's.
